    HP Poster brings this:
    “The actual radioactiv­e waste is an issue at LANL. But the real issue is radioactiv­e vegetation­. Type ‘radioacti­ve vegetation Los Alamos’ into a search and see what you get.
    People downwind of the fire will be exposed to fallout from this domestic radiologic­al release.”
    Good God…these plants are poisoning everything in their paths.

      funny how burning of grasslands in a test site with 60 odd years of isoptopic death in the soil and plants.
      then you have the japs burning thousands of tons of sludge,mud,wood,plastic building materials volatilizing tons of radioactive fallout.
      who needs a test ban treaty,when you have this.
      anyone who now thinks this is all just bad human luck and timing is a zombie.
      and where is your so called leader.
      we know his happy family are still in africa..

    Uhhh….it’s a nuclear research facility with lots of bomb material, shouldn’t that really be a standing order all the time?

      Really. What is going on here? What in the hell do they mean by that? Something smells fishy…

      Oh misread it, it says the main road into the town, not the facility itself. I guess for safety issues that could make sense….I guess….sure does a good job of hiding any problems, too….
