VICTORIA — The largest items swept out to sea following the Japanese tsunami in March could arrive on the B.C. coastline within days, oceanographer Curt Ebbesmeyer predicted on Wednesday.

The main part of the 20-million-tonne debris field, equivalent in size to the state of California, isn’t expected until about 2014, but houses, fishboats and even small freighters could already be close to Canadian shores, Mr. Ebbesmeyer said.

“We just finished running a simulation with a drifter, a buoy that got lost in the area of the tsunami, and we find that the first of the debris would be here now,” Mr. Ebbesmeyer said.

Beachcombers along the west coast of B.C. should be on the lookout and report any unusual finds, he said.

damned.gif Not good, this nightmare is just unfolding. If these vessels and trash are irradiated they will not have a clue as to what to do with them. You cant burn it, that's for certain. gaah.gif

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

That should be instituted worldwide, work for your cash. Infrastructure, forestry, environmental cleanup, tree planting etc. Make the world a better place.
Those who don't want to work don't get money. This of course does not apply to the Elderly or disabled but it would certainly improve the quality of everyone's lives IMO. cheers.gif
