Nuclear Weapons

Recently I was watching a documentary and in one part they spoke of nuclear weapons testing conducted in some 'god-forgotten' place in the Pacific... so I started wondering how many nuclear testing have gone without people knowing? Hundreds I guess... The war against Mother Nature continues...
Australia; Marshall Islands; Nevada, US; China; and India have been some of the places where nuclear weapons testing have been conducted... and let´s not even talk about Hiroshima since that would require a whole post for that matter.

  1. I know they were doing nuclear testing in the atmosphere for a long time. I think that's been stopped, but talk about damage to the atmosphere. It's crazy.

  2. I think that it's been established that so much testing has already gone on, that the present levels of radiation and damage will be irreversible for the next 30,000 years. And what really sucks is all the smaller countries wanting to be a nuclear power so badly that they throw the test ban treaty to the wayside. Little do they know that they are slowly killing us all...

  4. Eh. It'll just force everything to evolve some better telomere management, and high time too.

  5. One of the weird quirks of this is that the purest steel happens to be in sunken warships at the bottom of the ocean. All steel made today is contaminated by radioactivity, even though its small enough that the effects are negligible. All surface steel has absorbed radiation from nuclear blasts. While the steel at the bottom of the ocean is isolated and clean.

  8. ...and all of this doesn't even take into account underground nuclear explosions.

  10. Some weapons are necessary, but I don't think these are.

  11. It's a hard situation, it's kind of like a mexican stand off between all of the countries that have nuclear weapons. Everyone has them because everyone else has them.

  12. It's pretty scary to think about this actually. God knows how many exotic islands or 'forgotten lands' were destroyed this way. Makes me wanna punch their president in the face.

  13. its absolutely sickening how we manage to treat our own planet with such animosity. carbon footprint is one thing, radioactive one is quite the other
