Doug Fenner's suggestion to leave live ordinance lying about has the merit

usage in some locations. Instead, controlled charge placement and magnitude
would more effectively discourage site use, control collateral damage, and
facilitate scientific interpretation of results.
Additional issues to be explored for which some of the experiments have been
Does nuclear or conventional weapons testing afford the better ecosystem
protection?Does the approach work in other ecosystems?
At one level this is a serious discussion about a real issue. At another
level a discussion about bombing reefs to protect them from people seems
