It became directly exposed to the radiation.The radiation is very hazardous which affected the environmental balance. 3.3.2 Long Term The contaminated land, plants and forest has lost it’s quality.It will take long period of time to gain the better quality. 3.4 Physiological 3.4.1Short
The perception of human existence and its core aspects have never been the same after the developments during the twentieth century. Together with discoveries in physics and chemistry, the century has witnessed two world wars which led to millions of human deaths and other human atrocities. One of the miracles of the twentieth century was the creation of a nuclear weapon. The development of the nuclear weapons followed with further research on the hydrogen bomb as well as all the controversies surrounding the creation of the weapon. These controversies can be directly linked to some issues of moral and ethical significance.
By the time of the Industrial Revolution, people used water energy, heat energy and nuclear power. Using nuclear power has spread to most countries in the world because scientists are looking at it as a real renewable source for energy. Nuclear power is the power that is produced by controlling the reaction of separating the element such as Uranium. However, when it was used to make weapons such as nuclear bombs some of its negative effects appeared after the Second World War. Also when the Chernobyl Reactor accident happened, the reactor was destroyed and a cloud of radiation spread to a huge area in Europe.
The oil spill caused monumental environmental damage to the Alaskan coastline where some species are still recovering from today. The impact of the spill on flora and fauna, human life and the economy was staggering which was caused by human error, lack of adequate resources and insufficient support from external systems. The oil spill tested the preparedness and response to a disaster of this magnitude, which revealed many shortcomings. Due to this historical event, numerous important lessons and recommendations emerged to prevent or mitigate the impacts of future
Also, the lingering effects of nuclear war causes considerable amounts of lasting damage to the environment and society. Nuclear war causes devastation in many different forms, especially in the environment and society as is currently known. The first effects of nuclear war are seen in the destroyed environment. “Fires from even a limited nuclear war would throw enough soot into the atmosphere to block sunlight and lower global temperatures (MacDonald).” The initial impacts of atomic bombs would stirs up massive amounts of dirt, soot, and debris from the earth and launches it into the ozone, as well as the radiation that the bombs release. This increase of debris in the ozone would block sunlight, which would the cause drastic temperature changes to occur all over the world.
Had Truman not dropped the bombs on Nagasaki many American lives would have needlessly been lost. The atomic bombs destroyed many thinks in their wake as nearly 140,000 Japanese lives were taken (). Scientists witnessed the utter power of these weapons of mass destruction and tried to control it, thus bringing forth the atomic age. The energy in an atomic bomb can be harvested and controlled in order to provide safe and clean energy. Though the plan was for a reliable energy source for the world, things took tragic turns as inevitable accidents occurred.
Oil spills occur due to the release of the liquid petroleum hydrocarbon in the environment, especially in marine areas. This released oil floats over the surface of the body thus preventing the sunlight to pass through it and making it difficult for the plants and animals to survive below water level. The three main effects of oil spillage are listed below:- 1. Environmental Effects: First of these is the environmental effect. The animal life that lives in the water or near the shore is the ones most affected by the spill.
Pollution is one of the most serious issues the world confronts today. It means adding contamination to environment. The nature 's domain consists of earth, water, air, plants and creatures. If we contaminate them, then the presence of man and nature will be hampered, and our naturally beautiful world becomes ugly because it is suffering from the effects of environmental pollution. There are many types of pollution, namely water, air and noise.
As you know, it’s the environmental effects. As oil spill floats on water it prevents sunlight and air to pass through it. The shiny substance that you see on top layer of water makes it difficult for sea plants and sea animals to survive. The substance is so toxic that it can cause massive loss of species that live in the sea. Spilled oil can harm living things because its chemical substances are poisonous.
In most cases many of the ecosystems usually affected by marine oil spill are used to natural disturbances. These various factors should be considered to help determine the effectiveness of an oil spill in a marine environment • The type of oil spilled • The quantity • Volume The most common environmental oil spill effect on the environment is the release of un-wanted oil into the sea, ocean or river by companies. The oil spillage sea, oceans and so on has dangerous effect on the fishes, dolphins, sharks, sea
