11/12(Tue.) Secret Cold War Base in Greenland (Host:Felicia)

文章 Felicia.Tong »

People talks about global warming for decades. However, the situation has not been improved at all but become worse and worse. Project Iceworm was a top secret United States Army program of the Cold War, which aimed to build a network of mobile nuclear missile launch sites under the Greenland ice sheet. The ultimate objective of placing medium-range missiles under the ice — close enough to strike targets within the Soviet Union — was kept secret from the Government of Denmark. To study the feasibility of working under the ice, a highly publicized "cover" project, known as Camp Century, was launched in 1960. Unstable ice conditions within the ice sheet caused the project to be canceled in 1966. By ice melting, this secret underground is dismantled and has been found that there is a lot of nuclear waste left and abandoned by US. Through melting ice, those hazardous material flows with water together.
