      California, among the first states to embrace nuclear energy in the s, may be breaking things off for good.   California would enact its own safety standards on nuclear power, beyond those set by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Two-thirds of California voters rejected this patently absurd initiative which was certain to have been thrown out in court. During the build-up to the Cold War, the U.S. government called upon hundreds of factories and research centers to help develop nuclear weapons and other forms of atomic energy. At many sites, this work left behind residual radioactive contamination requiring government cleanups, some of which are still going on. The Department of Energy says it has protected the public health, and studies.   In fact, the US indicated in its Nuclear Posture Review that it was developing contingency plans for the use of nuclear weapons against seven countries – two nuclear weapons states (Russia and China) and five non-nuclear weapons states (Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya and North Korea, which at the time was not thought to have nuclear weapons).
