Nuclear Weapons And Their Hazards

Nuclear Weapons and Their Hazards The modern world is threaten by atomic bombs, chemical weapons, and other nuclear weapons. The nuclear weapon is the number one problem facing the world today. We have not been able to get nuclear weapons under control yet but we all know that our world will be totally destroy. Since the development of nuclear energy, the outcome of human civilization was very slim. It was intended for a good cause, when a Germany-Jew split the atom and found energy, but instead it was used for destroying the next country. The effect on the modern world in devastating.

More recent atomic weapons are the ICBM missile. These missiles have multiple warheads that can destroy the entire world in less then 35 minutes. Nuclear war would produced so much smoke that rapid, substantial temperature and rainfall decreases would occur over wide areas of the middle Northern Hemisphere. Smaller temperature decreases might occur in low latitudes but more importantly in these regions rainfall would probably decreases because monsoons could not develop. Like in On The Beach, all the radiation move towards Australia and everyone innocent people died.

A large-scale nuclear war would lessen food production over large expanses in the Northern Hemisphere, this could occur through acute climatic conditions which chilling or freezing temperatures occurring for brief periods during the growing season which could destroy crops or lower production. As result of the variety of potential physical and societal disruptions to agriculture from a large-scale nuclear war, agriculture in the Northern Hemisphere could be shut down or significantly reduced for the first growing season after war and maybe several growing seasons. Only the major grain-producing countries such as United States, Canada, and Australia had enough stored food to keep their populations alive if they lost the crops from a full growing season. For countries and thus for most of the people on earth, the food would run out in a matter of a few months if there were no agricultural production for just one growing season. The majority of the earth’s human population is vulnerable to starvation following a large-scale nuclear war.

As the radiation affect the human, the skin melts on direct contact, buildings collapse, bodies everywhere, pile up everywhere. When we bomb Nagasaki & Hiroshima, on a one megaton bomb, 3 miles in radius was totally destroy. Now, with 20 megaton minimal to 100 megaton maximum, can destroy a whole 25 miles in radius and more. No one can stop this madness. Even if you’re able to control the nuclear weapons, some people country such as Iraq would buy the weapon or make their own and other country will start another war. In Iraq, Saddam Hussein’s nuclear power plants were destroy because Iraq threaten the world so much that you must destroy his power plant.

Like the movie, The Day After, one person launched the missile, and the rest of the world launch the missile because theres no way of stopping it. One way of controlling it, is stopping the people that makes the nuclear weapon. People have a disease of killing the world and making the world a living hell for all of us. In the book, 5:10 AM, there was a unidentified object on the radar, people are out there partying while an unexpected announcement that it might be a ICBM, everyone started to panic everyone started to seek shelter but this family had an emergency shelter, the people beg their way in, more then 100 of them trying to get into a 4 people shelter and everyone was trying to kill themselves to survive and they nearly torn down the door but the radio came on saying that it was a satellite while everyone was happy again and start partying and the people never learns. No body should have access to the nuclear weapons but nuclear energy is allowed. The space program should have access to the nuclear energy because they can harnest the energy into good use and maybe blow up the aliens. The space program could also make advanced rockets so we can travel faster and discover even more things.

Even if you blow your opponent out, wind will eventually blow the radiation fall out back to your country and every one will still hate you it’ll even carry the radiation to other countries and other countries will nuke you because you cause it and at the end, you’ll end up with a huge comisc radioactive cloud and it’ll destroy all living things such as baby with three head, fish with five eyes and other thing such as cats with six legs. We really don’t have a choice in this matter, the government is the one that sits behind the desk that holds the buttons to launch, its their country. If they wants to blow up the planets they’ll blow it up. People are too smart for it, they’re just using nuclear weapons to threaten other country.
