Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), the laboratory that produced the first atomic bombs used during World War II and the home of the primary nuclear weapons research facility in the United States, is about to lose dozens of its top nuclear scientists.

According to a report from The Hill, more than 100 scientists, nuclear engineers, and others are being fired due to a vaccine mandate at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The Hill said that dozens of top nuclear scientists with “highest security clearances in the nation” and PhDs in sciences and engineering will be fired from Los Alamos Lab after the deadline for Los Alamos National Lab employees to get vaccinated has come and gone. The report is a further confirmation that people with PhDs refused to get the vaccine than those with lower educational levels.

According to a Thursday report from the Hill, a total of 114 workers at Los Alamos National Laboratory filed a lawsuit over the mandate, claiming that “exemptions have been unduly denied and their constitutional rights are being violated by Triad National Security LLC, the contractor that runs the lab for the U.S. Department of Energy.”

In a tweet on Friday, AP reported that “a New Mexico judge denied a request by dozens of scientists and others at Los Alamos National Laboratory who sought to block a vaccine mandate. Workers risk being fired if they don’t comply with the lab’s Friday afternoon deadline.”

Then this week, the employees, including top nuclear engineers and scientists, took to the streets outside the lab, protesting the mandate which orders them to get their first dose of the Covid vaccine or face termination. The lab currently employs nearly 14,000 people and is one of the largest employers in the state of New Mexico.

The Hill also reported that it reached out to Triad National Security LLC and to the workers’ attorney for comment. “One anecdote from the case said that a worker was yelled at for being unvaccinated and told by a crew member that his family deserved to die,” The Hill reported.

Los Alamos National Laboratory employees estimate the lab could lose up to 10 percent of its total staff because of the mandate. Many of the plaintiffs in the case are specialists with high-level security clearances and expertise that would complicate finding new workers to replace them quickly, the AP said.

A. People don't trust their government.
B. These are scientists and THEY are not trusting the data. Of other scientists.
C. The rest are being pressured under threat of losing their jobs.

The damage is just beginning. People aren't backing off their convictions when they never see "the science". I hear a lot about "the science" but I never see it. I'm educated, like a lot of other people. Fauci needs to go but, in politics, losing face is a career killer. Fauci is doing a pretty good job of ruining his credibility all by himself.

Science said we don't need masks, science said we need masks, science said we need two masks, science said once we're vaccinated we won't need masks, science said if 60-70% of the people get vaccinated we will reach herd immunity, science said we need to wear masks even if vaccinated and lastly science said we 2 weeks to flatten the curve. This has been the longest damn 2 weeks of our lives.

The most disappointing thing about all this is that despite the fact that I keep checking on all these stories lately, none of them are written for/by The Onion or Babylon Bee... It's sad when satire can't be written that is more bizarre than the truth.
