In Greenland, the US nuclear base created to fight the USSR began to thaw

39
In Greenland, the secret American military base Camp Century, which was built as part of the nuclear project "Iceworm", began to thaw. It is reported by the British newspaper Daily Star.


The base was used to locate a network of mobile nuclear rocket launch sites under the Greenland ice sheet. The Ice Worm project was launched in 1958 year. According to the US military plan, 600 nuclear missiles, which are capable of reaching the territory of the USSR, were to be located at the base.

In Greenland, the US nuclear base created to fight the USSR began to thaw


Base Camp Century was built in 1959 year, then the base was on 8 meters below the ice level. The US base was intended to counter the USSR in a possible nuclear war, since it was only a hundred miles away from the enemy. On the territory of the base, besides the military facilities, there was a shop, a cinema, a church and residential premises accommodating up to 200 soldiers. The camp was closed in 1967 year due to the unstable condition of the ice. There was a danger of collapse of one of the walls of the base. All the necessary equipment was removed from there, but biological and radioactive waste remained.

Recently, the glacier began to thaw, exposing the infrastructure of the Iceworm. According to preliminary data, about 200 of thousands of liters of diesel fuel, several hundred thousand of wastewater, as well as an unknown amount of radioactive refrigerant and toxic organic substances can remain on the base.

      Which 100 miles? Where is the USSR and where is Greenland?

        Nearest Kaliningrad is approximately 3000 km from this base.
        In Greenland, the Americans placed a lot of things at the time, the Yankees built 17 military bases. Three times more soldiers were stationed on them than there were residents in Greenland itself. The most famous air base in Tula, where strategic bombers were based, in 1968, a strategic B-52 bomber with thermonuclear bombs crashed seven miles south of Tula base, which led to radioactive contamination of a large area. Of the four hydrogen bombs of B-28F1 with a capacity of 1,45 megatons, three were found, and one still lies somewhere at the bottom of the Smith Strait.

    about 200 thousand liters of diesel fuel can remain at the base

    And no one has taken out over the years? Russian soul is such neglect wildly. wassat

      I don’t know how Russian, but, for example, the governor Kolomoisky pumped oil out of canned oil pipelines and poured water there, reasonably reasoning that if anyone later fails to restore these pipelines, then he didn’t .... It happened. And the oil there in the 1250 pipe was decent ....
      And I don’t remember that we were so greedy for other people's oil products ...

    Last year they wrote - “it can thaw”, now - “it started to thaw”. Let the Greenland subbotnik be announced.
    According to scientists, the Camp Century base should thaw out around 2090. Glacier decreases at a rate of about 3-m per year.

        In general, nothing good for the planet that glaciers melt. A possible cause, scientists consider the disaster on the oil platform in April 2010. 5 million barrels (680 thousand tons !!!) flowed into the ocean. The damage to the world's oceans is enormous. Given that it is he who forms the climate ... In general, the greedy businessmen from BP are kazly! negative

          In general, the planet does not care that they melt or freeze. When people stop talking for the planet / nature, and begin to honestly admit that they messed up in the past, and they will have to rake in the future.

    No no no. Flies separately, and cutlets here.

    The British newspaper writes about the fact that the US has a "loose stool" and the CIA is powerless to stop leaks, leaks and drains? ... Well then ..... "I do not believe it!"
    This game is not at the kindergarten level. "And my brother is a pilot, he will fly and bomb you." I doubt that we would have smelled something like this ourselves. So no, they take us by the bacon and poke us to smell it.
    I do not want. And then tomorrow another Amerov shit will send us to rake.
    No. Not seen, not heard, not read. And how will they sleep in London today? repeat

    Old information, even a film about this base was already shot and shown on TV. The site "Optimist" back in 2016 posted an article about it.
