Poor Glenn Seaborg (encountered by moi as younger-Lecturer re a 'Westinghouse Science Talent Search' assembly/meeting of the early 50s; then again, in celebration of world's first Heavy-ion duo-accelerator complex, in '74).

He was the first to do microchemistry/pico-chemistry? of Plutonium (and maybe? U235 to see if any chemical-separation chemistry was noticeably different)--a long-shot that, for an under-1% ∆ of At. Wt. Alas, my mini-plebiscite of local yout, over years suggests: that hardly a one has heard of 'valence', of pH as in 'acids, bases, salts' nor all that ensues after Chem 101R/remedial wasn't even peeped by the perps. Surely a Litmus-test {What's Litmus? Phenolphthalein? what's an Indicator?}

We're successfully dumbed-down this. far. as to make 'Climate' an unfathomable Idea ..except to the minuscule-Brightest amongst. Thus to make it a Sell-Short futchah for all the unTeachables-as-voting-bloc.
