Radiation Testing in US Widespread during Cold War –Researcher

“Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who’s gonna do it? You?” –Col. Jessup, A Few Good Men!

Unsuspecting people throughout the U.S., as well as in  England and Canada, were subjected to potentially deadly material through open-air spraying, ingestion and injection in US government’s offensive radiological weapons program, says researcher, Dr Lisa Martino-Taylor, an associate professor of sociology at St. Louis Community College.

“They targeted the most vulnerable in society in most cases,” Martino-Taylor said, AP reported. “They targeted children. They targeted pregnant women in Nashville. People who were ill in hospitals. They targeted wards of the state. And they targeted minority populations.”

Tests were conducted in Nashville, Chicago and San Francisco in the late 1940s. In Nashville alone “820 poor and pregnant white women” were “fed, sprayed or injected” with a mixture that included radioactive iron during their first pre-natal examination, then blood samples were taken to determine how much radioactive iron had been absorbed by the mother, and the babies’ blood was tested at birth, Martino-Taylor wrote in her book: “Behind the Fog: How the U.S. Cold War Radiological Weapons Program Exposed Innocent Americans.”

Now, three members of Congress, William Lacy Clay of Missouri, Brad Sherman of California and Jim Cooper of Tennessee, say they were outraged by the revelations and demand answers, AP reported.  More…

Nuclear weapons have been tested in all environments since 1945: in the atmosphere, underground and underwater. Tests have been carried out onboard barges, on top of towers, suspended from balloons, on the Earth’s surface, more than 600m underwater and over 200m underground. Nuclear test bombs have also been dropped by aircraft and fired by rockets up to 320 km into the atmosphere

“How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” – US detonated more than 210 nuclear bombs in 17 years

Between 1945 and 1962, the United States detonated more than 210 atomic bombs, releasing massive amounts of radioactive particles into the atmosphere.

A team from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has declassified and preserved several hundred samples from an estimated 10,000 films showing the atmospheric nuclear detonation testing in the Pacific during the so-called Cold War.

Some of the declassified films are posted on the LLNL’s YouTube playlist.

Fleeing Thermonuclear Bombs and King Tides

Threatened by rising sea levels, Bikini Islanders request US refuge

More than 1,000 Bikini islanders have asked the United States to relocate them as rising sea levels threaten their homes.

The US government relocated the residents from Bikini Atoll to a nearby island named Kili in the Marshall Islands chain in the 1940s due to atomic bomb tests.

The US conducted at least 23 nuclear tests, including the massive hydrogen bomb, Bravo, the largest weapon detonated at the time, . Bravo (yield 15 Mt), an experimental thermonuclear device surface event, was detonated on Bikini Atoll on March 1, 1954 as part of the Operation Castle. Source: U.S. Department of Energy (public domain).

In December 1945, President Harry S. Truman issued a directive to Army and Navy officials for joint testing of nuclear weapons “to determine the effect of atomic bombs on American warships.” Bikini was chosen for nuclear testing because of its location away from regular air and sea routes.

Their new home, however, is now threatened by the climate change dividends—rising sea levels, giant tides and ferocious storms.

Widespread flooding across the Marshall Islands last year caused extensive damage, leaving hundreds of residents homeless.

Bikini Atoll is one of the 29 atolls and five islands that comprise the Marshall Islands. The atolls are scattered over 925,000 square kilometers in the Pacific Ocean, north of the equator. The geographic area is referred to as Micronesia.
