The State of Texas has been lying to its citizens about the amount of radiation found in their water during state testing.
“It would be regrettable”. What the former chair of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is referring to is the people who are getting cancers because of radiation in the drinking water that she decided not to inform them about.
Nuclear materials are some of the most dangerous materials known to man. Do we as a society have the social and governmental abilities to deal with these materials? Or, do we have a society where government agencies would mislead the public with test results that are deliberately made lower before being released to the public? If we can not handle these materials with the highest regard to safety, then the result will be tragedies of diseases like cancer and leukemia striking family after family.
A government that merely finds it “regrettable” that it fails in guaranteeing this safety is not the guarantor of safety that the citizens of this country require when we are talking about some of the most dangerous substances known to man.
