Vancouver beaches cleared of tons of debris from 2011 earthquake.

 

Work began Tuesday to clear dozens of beaches on the west coast of Vancouver Island of debris and plastics, much of it washed ashore from the 2011 tsunami that swept Japan.

Using a helicopter, a barge and a tug, volunteers are picking up cached bundles of garbage from one end of the island to the other.

For months, hundreds of volunteers from seven groups have combed beaches by foot and by boat between Cape Scott in the north and Sooke in the south.

They bagged a staggering array of plastic junk and stashed them above the tide line for later removal.

Now, with the last bits of money provided by the Japanese government for a multi-year tsunami debris cleanup program, members of the Vancouver Island Marine Debris Working Group hired the tug Westco Rouge out of Campbell River to pick up the junk and take it to Richmond for recycling.

I think it's more a Japanese cultural thing, most countries wouldn't pay for it traditionally the Japanese are extremely honorable.

 

 

 

They don't even have public trash cans in most of Japan(mostly to avoid sarin gas attacks) but regardless much less trash littered on the street than here.

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.3 hit northern Japan on Tuesday, the Japan Meteorological Agency said, generating a tsunami that hit the nation's northern Pacific coast.

The earthquake, which was felt in Tokyo, was centred off the coast of Fukushima prefecture at a depth of about 10 kilometres and struck at 5:59 a.m. local time, the agency said.

A 60-centimetre tsunami had been observed at Fukushima's Onahama Port and a 90-centimetre tsunami at Soma soon after, public broadcaster NHK said.

The region is the same that was devastated by a tsunami following a massive earthquake in 2011. A tsunami warning of up to three metres has been issued.

January 24, 2017, CNBC: Fukushima radiation levels far lower than previously thought, study finds https://www.google.c...tudy-finds.html

February 03, 2017, The Guardian: Fukushima Daiichi radiation levels highest since 2011 https://www.google.c...e-2011-meltdown

...lol

Anyways, the sievert count is at 530. Expose to just 4 will kill 50% of human beings.

In this very thread we had people outright denying the severity of the Fukushima meltdown, saying everything was completely under control and nuclear fallout was no threat to anything other than the immediate area around the plant ...because the media said so.

Meanwhile experts from around the world were saying the situation was grave, but their warnings were labelled as nonsense. Today we'd call that fake news.

Are you referring to the false map that floated around the net being represented as the radiation intensity but turned out to be the wave intensity? I don't remember anyone saying there was no problem. In the alt-world all news is fake new. https://defensetech....eight/?mobile=1

The general attitude was that Fukushima was not a threat beyond its immediate environment and that the ocean is great at diluting nuclear fallout.

This is the honor I was talking about, would like to see our officials with the same level of commitment… it wasn't even ever meant to be used as drinking water.... lisa better be drinking the outfall water when the sewage treatment plant is complete.

 

Not sure about that guy, but this guy has leukemia:

 

 

......Otsuka Norikazu, a TV news caster was a good Japanese. He devoted himself for the national campaign of “Let’s support north Japan by eating their food.”

 

 

He was sent to the hospital for acute lymphatic leukemia on 11/7/2011.

It's a relatively small densely populated country not a lot of places to hide. Tokyo to Fukushima is about the same distance as Victoria to Campbell River.
