My Core Mediation Of The
Japanese Landscape After Radioactive Fallout

Many people have written me
and asked more or less the same question: “What would you do
to help heal the Japanese landscape around the failing
The enormity and
unprecedented nature of this combined natural and human-made
disaster will require a massive and completely novel
approach to management and remediation. And with this comes
a never before seen opportunity for collaboration, research
The nuclear fallout will make
continued human habitation in close proximity to the
reactors untenable. The earthquake and tsunami created
enormous debris fields near the nuclear reactors. Since much
of this debris is wood, and many fungi useful in
mycoremediation are wood decomposers and build the
foundation of forest ecosystems, I have the following
Evacuate the region around
Establish a high-level,
diversified remediation team including foresters,
mycologists, nuclear and radiation experts, government
officials, and citizens.
Establish a fenced off
Nuclear Forest Recovery Zone.
Chip the wood debris from the
destroyed buildings and trees and spread throughout areas
suffering from high levels of radioactive contamination.
Mulch the landscape with the
chipped wood debris to a minimum depth of 12-24 inches.
Plant native deciduous and
conifer trees, along with hyper-accumulating mycorrhizal
mushrooms, particularly Gomphidius glutinosus, Craterellus
tubaeformis, and Laccaria amethystina (all native to pines).
G. glutinosus has been reported to absorb – via the mycelium
– and concentrate radioactive Cesium 137 more than
10,000-fold over ambient background levels. Many other
mycorrhizal mushroom species also hyper-accumulate.
Wait until mushrooms form and
then harvest them under Radioactive HAZMAT protocols.
Continuously remove the mushrooms, which have now
concentrated the radioactivity, particularly Cesium 137, to
an incinerator. Burning the mushroom will result in
radioactive ash. This ash can be further refined and the
resulting concentrates vitrified (placed into glass) or
stored using other state-of-the-art storage technologies.
