Customs officials in Vladivostok seized a radioactive cargo of 50 cars from Japan. Their level of radiation is two times higher than normal.

The cars are being kept in an isolated area while it is decided what to do with them. Their recipients say they do not have the right to send them back to Japan.

Earlier this week, customs in Vladivostok seized a cargo of 20 radioactive cars.

Intensive beta-radiation was discovered during a checking of the “Asian Ice” ship.

This is the first large shipment of radioactive second-hand cars from Japan. Earlier, heightened levels of radiation were found on several private vehicles.

Dan, you've been duped.

Despite whatever argument the atomjacks may peddle, the fact remains that there is nothing clean about the fuel cycle for nukes, irrespective of the fission system that uses it.

The fact is that they have no earthly intention of allowing renewable's to participate in the marketplace in any meaningful way, and they never have.

In a future far from now, from a galaxy far far away, species will visit this smoldering ruin of a planet and use earth as the bad example. So, you keep pokin Cythulhu to see if he wakes up .
