  •  I think you're looking for a comprehensive (0+ / 0-)

    study that will take years to do, and will probably be corrupted by monied interests anyway. In the mean time, we're stuck with the thousands of reports, testimony, anecdotal evidence, and projections from the people there.

    As is always the case, some of that information will be flawed. But a lot of it isn't. And in appraising the matter, common sense is required.

    •  I've not seen thousands. (0+ / 0-)

      I've seen dozens. The dozens clearly suggest thousands, even many many thousands. But I'm looking for one danged "I'm a nurse in a small town and I've seen this many." "I'm a reporter and I saw these many"

      I want something solid so when I talk about it I don't have to deal with bullshit dismissals (see my remarks about Fukushima I think in this thread I started). My personal bias is "of course this has to be a health disaster and emergency." But that's not enough to talk about a thing in public spaces.

      So you will see me keep asking the question. Someday, I'll get what I'm looking for.

      And btw, yes I see convincing anecdotes but then in the text I'll see "just like the false flag of Oklahoma City, the media...." That's why I can't go to that as backup.
