Propaganda newsreels from the 1950's about how safe atomic bomb testing is to the people of St George Utah on the Nevada border. Later it was revealed that the bomb testing caused radiation poisoning, and cancer brought by toxic winds to the town people who live 135 miles away.

Quote:
The fallout from this paranoiac witch-hunting rained deadly radioactive poison on the people of southwestern Utah as public officials prized a perverted interpretation of national security far about the lives of loyal and innocent people. Following World War II, the United States exploded atomic weapons at the Pacific islands of Bikini and Eniwetok; but in December 1950, President Truman authorized the AEC to conduct test in the continental United States. The AEC selected the Nevada Test Site in southeastern Nevada because the federal government owned hundreds of square miles of surrounding desert land, and because it contained, in the contemptuous words of one bureaucrat, "a low-use segment of the population"--the Mormon citizens of St. George, Cedar City, and other sacrificial cities of southwestern Utah. For seven years between 1951 and 1958, the AEC aimed deadly radiation at soldiers stationed as close as 3.9 miles from the explosions and at the people of southeastern Nevada, northwestern Arizona, and southern Utah by detonating atomic weapons aboveground at the Nevada test site. After the United States ratified a Limited Test Ban Treaty with the Soviet Union in August 1963, the AEC continued to conduct underground tests, many of which erupted through the surface to again blanket Utahns with radioactive debris.
As evidence mounted of the deadly poisons these tests rained on the people of southwestern Utah, AEC officials induced their employees to lie about the danger. After establishing a ground-monitoring program in the spring of 1953, the AEC conducted a series of tests in the Upshot-Knothole series. In one of these tests--nicknamed "Dirty Harry"--a radioactive cloud lofted by the explosion hovered over St. George for more than two hours. Fallout reached levels far above those considered safe even by conservative AEC standards. Nevertheless, in an immoral cover-up justified by perverted appeal to national security, the AEC instructed its employees to release vague statements to the public and press. When humans and animals began sickening and dying, an AEC official told subordinates to keep quiet, "in the interest of national defense." Following this directive, AEC officials falsified data from the St. George monitoring station to make it appear that the radiation could not have harmed anyone.

If you haven`t seen the film beyond trinity do yourself the favor. It is really staggering to see how many nukes have gone off on our planet in non-war times. I would really like to know how much radiation we are all suffering because of it. Thanks for this video!
