INTERESTING: And segregation was designed in?

How the Manhattan Project’s Nuclear Suburb Stayed Secret
Oak Ridge, Tennessee, once home to 75,000, went up fast and under the radar. But it was built to last, too.

At least for some. While white employees lived in relatively cushy digs, their black counterparts were more likely to be placed in structures known as “hutments,” little more than plywood frames without indoor plumbing. “Segregation was actually designed in from the start,” Moeller says.

How evil are the politicians and bureaucrats that did this?

I find that it was (a) designed in from the start; and (b) that people accepted it as fait accompli.

Of course, it wouldn’t happen today, but what evil was in these men’s hearts from the get go.

Sigh. So sad.

Is everything that Gooferment does inherently “evil” and “flawed”?

Seems so.

Japan’s Radiation Disaster Toll: None Dead, None Sick
by Soulskill
An anonymous reader writes “This article discusses a recently-released U.N. Scientific Committee report which examined the health effects of the accident at the Fukushima nuclear plant. Their conclusion: ‘Radiation exposure following the nuclear accident at Fukushima-Daiichi did not cause any immediate health effects. It is unlikely to be able to attribute any health effects in the future among the general public and the vast majority of workers. … No radiation-related deaths or acute effects have been observed among nearly 25,000 workers involved at the accident site. Given the small number of highly exposed workers, it is unlikely that excess cases of thyroid cancer due to radiation exposure would be detectable.’ The article even sums up the exposure levels for the workers who were closest to the reactor: ‘Of 167 exposed to more than the industry’s recommended five-year limit of 100 mSv (a CT scan exposes patients to up to 10 mSv), 23 recorded 150-200 mSv, three 200-250 mSv and six up to 678 mSv, still short of the 1000 mSv single dosage that causes radiation sickness, or the accumulated exposure estimated to cause a fatal cancer years later in 5 per cent of people.’ The report also highlights the minute effect it’s had on the environment: ‘The exposures on both marine and terrestrial non-human biota were too low for observable acute effects.'”

I hope this correct and not “biased” by Gooferment.

If it is, then despite a huge blunder nuke energy makes sense.

Only if we trust the dikw (i.e., data, information, knowledge, wisdom) we are receiving, then we should be pushing nuke versus carbon as our civilization’s savior.
