dennisfrancisblewett Posted January 6, 2022 Report Share Posted January 6, 2022 I'm reading through this: STATE OF WISCONSIN CIVIL DEFENSE NEWS BULLETIN (FEBRUARY 1964) It argues the following: Quote "...The Department of Defense has continuously stressed that no other defense weapon -- neither the present bomber defense nor the potential missile defense -- can be effective without fallout shelters. New Pentagon studies have shown that, even in the worst conceivable kind of attack, fallout shelters of the kind recommended by the federal Office of Civil Defense would save from 25 million to 65 million people, and that the cost of saving these lives through a shelter program would be vastly less than the cost per life saved of any other defensive weapon now known..." Well, I don't know how many government-funded fallout shelters are in existence, but perhaps there are many more these days (prior to the Office of Civil Defense being shut down). Perhaps the fallout shelters could save 100+ million lives. If so, I think it'd be within society's interest to the use the fallout shelters in an effort to bring down SARS-CoV-2 case count, deaths, etc.. Thoughts?
