Up to 20 million tons of tsunami debris headed for Bandon & Chareleston

Prepare for a garbage deluge.

An estimated 5 million tons to 20 million tons of debris sucked into the ocean during Japan's massive tsunami is due to hit U.S. shores, University of Hawaii scientists say. The wall of water struck in March, so that means the garbage should be here -- sometime in 2014.

Hey, it takes a long time to cross the Pacific Ocean if you’re a couch. Or a fridge. Or a piece of a house. Or a Coke can.

All this material is going to be radioactive, don't get your hopes up on getting a 'clean' new fridge or the like. I wonder how and if the Coast Guard is going to protect our waters & food supply from this incoming, preventable danger.
