Radioactive material from Japan contaminating the US

The Japanese are sending dangerous radioactive material in our direction.

Nuclear engineering expert Arnie Gundersen states in his video presentation of August 21:

“the burning of radioactive materials (building materials, trees, lawn grass, rice straw) by the Japanese government will cause radioactive Cesium to spread even further into areas within Japan that have been previously clean, and across the Pacific Ocean to North America.

The Japanese are allowing that material to be burned if the concentration of radioactivity on anything that is radioactive is less than 8,000 becquerels per kilogram. What that means is that two pounds, about a kilogram, can be disintegrating at 8,000 disintegrations every second and the Japanese are allowing that to be burned. Here in the United States, that would be considered radioactive waste, and would have to be disposed of underground for thousands of years.

We need to demand that our political leaders hold the Japanese government responsible for this.
