Radiation fears spread to forest industry

  • Radiation fears spread to forest industry

    SHIROISHI, Miyagi -- Radiation fears stemming from the ongoing crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant and radiation monitoring activities are raising concern among people handling trees to grow mushrooms and make charcoal.

    Forest workers are very concerned about any potential fallout from the nuclear crisis because they have to independently monitor radiation before applying to the plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), for compensation, unlike farmers and fishermen who have standing in law.

    They just somehow can't get the fact that EVERYTHING is contaminated. There is no going back after it blows up. There is no decontamination. There is no solution apart from dead zones and evacuations. You can not clean it up, you can not burn it up, you can not make it disapear.
