Every project since about 1955 has generated it's own level of toxic waste. My understanding is the development of radar absorbent coatings contributes the majority of the issues. That, and aliens of course..................
Harry, I don't know about Chicago, but it was proven St. Louis was a target city for the aerial spraying of chemicals. Apparently in the 1950's the government sprayed several types of chemicals across the city to gauge their effects on the populace. At first they claimed it was to check air flow patterns allowing more accurate weather forecasting. "Weather Balloon" anyone? G
While the government claims no lasting effects, there are life long residents here that will tell you a different story. Areas of Utah, which were down wind from the test site, still have a higher than normal rate of cancer. Monument Valley is still contaminated and is specifically named as being a source of cancer for decades of film stars and crew. There is a reason the test site itself is Federal Land and off limits to the public. Remember the test site and Area 51 are two separate entities. Area 51 had it's own issues with toxic waste disposal in the 90's. The place is such a secret they couldn't acknowledge/disclose health issues amongst employees even under oath. G
Harry, we here in Nevada don't just fool with Mother Nature, we outright trick her. Acres of concrete and steel in the middle of the high desert causes untold changes in the weather. Add to that decades of nuclear testing and you have a recipe for disaster. G
Not exactly accurate. The lake is a result of damming the Colorado River which has run through the area for eons. The flow of the river has depended on snowfall for ever, so that is nothing new for the lake. The entire Mojave Desert area has been much, much drier than normal for a decade or so now. G
After a decade or more of driving less than adequate Detroit iron while on duty, I received a '94 Chevrolet Caprice with the LT1 engine. The first time I dropped the hammer on that big wonderful beast I was sold. G
