“Harry S Truman’s Decision to Use the Atomic Bomb” reports, “The temperature near the blast site reached 5,400 degrees Fahrenheit. The sky seemed to explode… People over two miles away burst into crumbling cinders. Others with raw skin hanging in flaps around their hips leaped shrieking into waterways to escape the heat” The atomic bomb caused a lot of destruction. People were gruesomely killed, and it was a terrible thing to watch. The bomb caused such terrible things to happen, it couldn’t have been a good thing.
The amount of casualties were horrendous reaching the 11 millions. It affected the world by destroying its people. It caused so much pain and awful actions from the Nazis. The Holocaust was the most devastating part of our history, consisting of terrifying amounts of people who were killed and
As countries become more aware of nuclear weapons and warfare, this poses a great threat on the world. Nuclear Weapons are the most dangerous weapons on earth. “One can destroy a whole city, potentially killing millions and jeopardizing the natural environment and lives of future generations through its long-term catastrophic effects.”(3.) We can clearly see the effects of nuclear warfare from the statistics in the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. “It is not unlikely that the estimates of killed and wounded in Hiroshima(150,000) and Nagasaki(75,000) are over conservative.” (4.)
Day of the Disaster by Lauren Tarshis ' is mostly about a town called Pompeii and the volcano called Mount Vesuvius, when the town of Pompeii was as normal as can be "BOOM, BOOM" then it happened one of the most deadliest volcano eruption in the world. Here is what the text stated "The pumice falls with painful force. It is mixed with hot ash, which clogs your nose and throat. Many people are fleeing." I choose this one because this explains how deadly this volcano was and is and what it could do if this happened again.
The conditions in the camps were awful, the housing was extremely overcrowded, everything in the camp it was dirty, which contributed to the already large amount of illnesses (Byers 41). Jews from every camp died from starvation regularly (Byers 41). People (mostly men) were forced to work or do labor for the Nazis, usually until they died or were killed (Lublin/Majdanek). The most used way for killing prisoners was the gas chambers. Millions of Jews died in gas chambers from gases like Zyklon B and carbon monoxide (Lublin/Majdanek).
However, there are a number of controversies over the use of nuclear energy with some supporting its use while others opposing the use of nuclear energy. Despite the controversy on whether to use nuclear energy as an alternative, nuclear power has proved to be safe, reliable, clean, and inexpensive. Therefore, Nuclear energy should replace other forms of power around the globe because it is more environmentally friendly, cost effective, and safe for use and to exist with human beings compared to other forms of energy being used today. One of the main benefits of nuclear energy over other forms of energy is that it is a clean way to produce energy. Nuclear energy does not result in the emission of any of greenhouses gases and other poisonous gases for instance, nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide.
With the extreme physical exertion combined with starvation, many prisoners perished. All of these terrible means of extermination and conditions contributed to the one million plus deaths that occurred at Auschwitz. The tragic occurrences at Auschwitz are incomparable to any other event that has ever happened in
Might I offer that now would be a good time to build desalination plants powered by LFTR technology that takes advantage of thorium as a potentially cheaper and safer form of nuclear power. Big-bad Israel seems to be a world-leader in desalination. From what I 'm read they 're pretty close to being "hydro"-independent. Water is easy to obtain from seawater by reverse osmosis or distillation. Not hard at all.
Fracking is one of the best ways to get natural resources. “Fracking is a process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at the rock to release the gas inside” (Unknown). Adversaries of fracking will say that it is dangerous, use up our water supply, and poison our water supply, but that is not totally true, fracking will bring in more money, save money, and will make the air cleaner and safer. Fracking may seem unacceptable because of what people say about it, however, when they drill deep into the facts they will see that fracking is actually very beneficial. Fracking will bring in tons of money for all of the United States.
During that day the plant began refining natural gas, releasing hydrogen sulphide which is very deadly into the atmosphere. This gas was trapped near the ground and resulted in deaths of 22 people and 320 were hospitalized. The weather condition which was foggy together with the toxic released was held responsible for the death of people in Poza Rica. (Usepa, 2003) 2.6. London Fog (1952) The most dramatic and detrimental incident occurred in London Fog.
