Utterly stupid netizens .
THERE IS NO NUCLEAR TEST.
It would breach the very treaties USA has been arm twisting the world to sign up to.
It would represent the GREATEST breach of Test Ban Treaty ( the cardinal central treaty } and would make that treaty worthless overnight.
It would give Iran and anyone else to follow suit.
USA possesses the worlds MOST sophisticated systems to carry out in detail all explosions within their Lawrence Livermore Labs computer complex .
They do not need to do ACTUAL tests.
Utterly stupid post.
We are talking about a country known for violating all treaties , especially the ones created by herself. They only apply to other countries.

That's what I posted on the 1st page.

I guess he thinks the 644K people (plus international tourists) who live in Vegas must have simply heard an explosion, saw a mushroom cloud, and thought nothing of it and went back to watering their gardens and tossing another few chips on the blackjack tables.

Well, they did not hear the explosion as no one reported it on Twitter from the ones I saw, but many saw the mushroom cloud and many took pictures of it. Who knows if it is a nuclear test, how far it actually was from the population, what kind of test it was and what kind of measures were taken for the test.

There is this thing called seismographs... if US conducts such a big test that you can see massive mushroom cloud, China will hear it in their seismographs all the way in beijing.

Not to mention, Vegas will see a major shaking :rofl: no need of seismographs.
Someone had already mentioned it can be monitor by seismographic machine.

I believe this is his response

It is not just about test, it is about sending a message to Russia, and Russians did received it.

What a nonsense.

Just a cloud.

Nuclear detonations make Earthquake and you can't hide that.

By the other side if the USA wants to do secret nuclear tests, they have a lot of lonely islands in the pacific to do it, they wouldnt do it in mainland.

nowhere in the twitter tweet is a claim that this was a nuclear explosion. All it refers to is a mushroom shaped cloud.

We are not talking about North Korea here. Las Vegas is a large city with million plus residents and thousands of tourists coming in daily

You do know that Google, Facebook and Twitter censor things that they do not like.

Dry as a bone: Las Vegas enforces new water restrictions​

The megadrought gripping the Western United States is widening.
Fifty-seven percent of the country and 100% of Nevada is in some level of drought, and nowhere is it as obvious as along the Colorado River.
In the Southwestern U.S., the massive Lake Mead Reservoir near Las Vegas is not as massive as it used to be. The water level has dropped to near-record-low levels. Drought has reduced the flow of water into the river, which has forced communities to cut back.
"Conservation in this valley means getting after our landscaping uses," said Colby Pellegrino, deputy general manager of resources at the Southern Nevada Water Authority.
SNWA saw this coming — it started enforcing aggressive water restrictions two decades ago.
In the Las Vegas area, 40% of the water is used inside homes. That water is recycled and sent back to Lake Mead. But the other 60% is used outdoors. The harsh desert sun evaporates it and it can't be recaptured, leading the water levels in the river and reservoir to keep dropping.
The water authority targeted the lush green grass that's not native to the desert, encouraging people to remove it.
"If that's not turf you're recreating on, if it's just there to look pretty or aesthetic, it really doesn't belong in this desert community," Pellegrino said.
At first, residents and businesses were slow to pull up their lawns. The removals surged in 2010, with almost 9 million square feet removed. The numbers dropped in the last few years; because it's been so productive, there's not much left to pull out.
Since the push started two decades ago, the Water Smart landscaping program has saved 152 billion gallons of water. That's enough to fill the Luxor Hotel Pyramid 422 times. But the authority is doubling down — it rebates homeowners and business owners $3 per square foot for the grass they remove (up to 10,000 feet), which is a lot of the good kind of green. And SNWA is working to implement even stricter rules.
"All new development cannot have turf unless it's a school park or cemetery," said Pellegrino.
Nevada's governor is also getting tough on lawns. He's signed a law requiring the removal of all decorative grass at businesses, complexes, along streets and in traffic medians in the next four years.
The program has been so successful that even as the population across southern Nevada grew by almost 50%, the amount of water used per capita was cut almost in half, and the water drawn from the Lake Mead Reservoir dropped by a quarter.
Cities and other states throughout the West are considering getting tough on lawns due to the drought.
