Why Incinerate Nuclear Waste???


Decontamination work begins in Fukushima Prefecture city amid concerns over incinerator plans http://mainichi.jp/english/english/newsselect/news/20120727p2a00m0na010000c.html

[excerpted] TAMURA, Fukushima -- Full-scale decontamination work under state jurisdiction began July 27 in the Miyakoji district in this Fukushima prefectural city of Tamura while an Environment Ministry plan to build a temporary incinerator is still up in the air due to opposition from local residents.

....But local residents are up in arms over the Environment Ministry's plan to install a temporary incinerator to burn decontaminated waste due to possible safety worries, and claim a briefing on the project was held only one month ago.
