Cesium Contamination Way Beyond Gunma ken

Tokyo, September 29th 2011

From August 23rd to September 8th, the Ministry of Education reports that, following a survey on the spread of radiation throughout  Eastern Japan, a helicopter measured airborne Cesium contamination over the Gunma prefecture and published a map on how it has spread. It is now clear that the contamination has scattered way beyond 250km from Daiichi in the North and West, amidst previous reports (or lack of, in this case) from TEPCO. Mountains such as Kiryu City, which is located 180 km away from Daiichi, recorded 10,000 to 30,000 Bq. Some parts in Nagano exceed 30,000 Bq more than 250 km away.

As to the South (Tokyo, Saitama and Chiba) is still anyone’s guess on how bad it could be.   Read more on this story on Asahi (in Japanese)

  2. Expect a minimum of 300km, but with all the incineration? Add Iwate to the north, Gifu to the south, Fukui because of Hamoaka plant, and Shizuoka because we know the green tea is radioactive also!

    Red square is initial area of contamination
    2nd row of squares, all of Japan combined islands, square footage.

    Compare to what we know now; 1/2 of Japan was gone on 311; with all the further spread of contamination through distribution of cesium beef and seafood, incineration nationwide,, even more of Japan is dangerous – and Fukushima radioactive releases are ongoing for over 6 months now! Worst catastrophe of all time!

  3. 28 minutes into the film are the squares I was speaking of, apparently lost the exact picture. I am posting a synopsis of Prof Hoide’s lecture on the Evacuate Fukushima facebook page in the next day to assist with finding information, or for those who can read very quickly.

    May all Beings Benefit!
