    Up to 20 million tons of debris from Japan’s tsunami moving toward west coast <hr style="color:#ffffff; background-color:#ffffff" size="1"> Watch out when it arrives! doh. I wonder if there will be any radioactivity materials mixed in .

    I suspect that most if not all of these debris will NOT have much Radioactivity associated with it. Simply because it left the area, of the Reactors, on the first few receding Tides, and Outflows, from the Tsunami WAve itself. This all happened Days before there was ANY release of RadioActivity caused by Containment Breaches. Those happened a few days later, when the Cooling Systems failed, and the Hydrogen Explosions took the Tops off the Containment Buildings. My Opinion.... YMMV.....

    That's nothing compared to the amount of junk we bring in on ships all the time form japan. I wonder how much this is going to cost the US in clean up.

    I was watching the fixed wing aircraft and helo's floating around...Now that would be some valuable souvenirs! Not so much the wood, trash, junk cars and such! I can see another massive "loan" hitting us on this one!

    Now there's a great way to get rid of the stuff! IF any of it "glows in the dark", there will be a heck of market in no time!

    Oh no, China will have to "improve" on that idea!
    I can see it all now, large "catchnets" for the floaty wrapped conex boxes!
    I've heard a lot of talk about going green and saving energy, but this is just way too much over the line!

    We could start our own "Sea Transport" company.....

    Some old fishing nets from out-of-work fishermen, a truckload of cheao Chinese rubber duckies, scavenge the styrofoam from the trash dumps......

    Bada bing! FLoat 'em on the prevailing currents! ;)

    Yeah, this is just Japan's revenge for Hiroshima. Remember, we made them clean up after us. :evil: [stirpot]
