Read “The Atomic Energy Commission Explains Atomic Testing in Nevada”, “Thomas H. Saffer Witnesses an Atomic Test at the Nevada Test Site”, and “The Yucca Mountain Debate – Spencer Abraham v. Kenny Guinn”; then watch this short video produced by the government in 1951 to make us all feel better about the bomb. After reading and watching, give me some examples of how the government attemped to keep Americans – especially Nevadans – comfortable with the idea of the bomb and nuclear testing. Why do you think they would want to do so? Would putting a repository at Yucca Mountain be a good idea or not? Why or why not? 250-500 words.
