The Tragedy of Nuclear War

Atomic powered states should act wisely handling deadly weapons.

The Tragedy of Nuclear War.


From August 1945 until now, more than 2,000 nuclear bombs have detonated worldwide, and the United States alone is responsible for half of them. Although the data is shocking to Peel, the fact that so far eight countries have carried out 2056 atomic explosions to test the power of the nuclear bomb.

The eight countries currently known to possess nuclear weapons are the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China, India, Pakistan, and North Korea. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Organization, as of January 2019, there are 13865 nuclear weapons under these eight countries. Surprisingly, ninety percent (90%) of these weapons occupied by the United States and Russia. However, even if a state does not have accurate information about the number of nuclear weapons available, it is possible to get an idea of what number of nuclear explosions a country has tested.

No other country, such as the United States and Russia, has ever had such a massive atomic bombing. Of course, all this has exploded in the interest of experimentation and observation. They were not used for war or attack in any area. Until now, the United States was the only war zone on the battlefield, with nuclear explosions in Japan's Hiroshima and Nagasaki. No other country has ever used nuclear power for this purpose.

The exciting thing is, at least three times the number of nuclear explosions that have occurred on the ground, below ground or at sea. This is because when an atomic blast hits the ground, it directly affects a human civilization. Although the outbursts are far from dense, the radioactivity of the atmosphere spreads rapidly. That is why most of the nuclear explosions take place deep in the ocean. India, Pakistan, and North Korea have all their atomic bombings in the sea. But it also does not hurt the environment. However, the ocean and the desert - it is part of the climate of the world.

As there was no policy on the use of nuclear weapons, it found that nuclear-powered states were regularly conducting nuclear explosions to demonstrate their power. From 1945 to 1996, there was a widespread competition between the United States, Russia, France, the United Kingdom, and China. The nerve war continued, and the prospect of another world war quickly began to wane. If no policy is made for the use of nuclear weapons, the world will soon be destroyed. To avoid this possibility, the United Nations created the ''Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty'' in short, known as CTBT. But not all nuclear-powered countries have signed the CTBT agreement. Although the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, and China have signed the treaty at different times, the countries that not yet approved are India, Pakistan, and North Korea. Since opening the deal in 1996, the three countries have tested nuclear weapons a total of ten times.

Despite all this, there are currently around 15000 nuclear weapons worldwide. Can you imagine how much damage this colossal weapon could bring if a disaster like the one in World War II happened again?

There are about 4,500 urban areas with all the countries on earth. On average, two to three nuclear bombs are enough to crush each city. But even then, there will be 1500 atomic bombs that need no use. Understand what the horrors of the next world war can be!

Let's think a little further. How would it be if 15,000 nuclear bombs will explode in one place at the same time? Imagine this vast explosive warehouse in the middle of a deep forest like Amazon. After a while, all the explosives will launch together. Before that, let us not do a little calculation. The power of a small explosive bomb is the equivalent of one ton of TNT. And on average, a nuclear weapon has a strength of 2 million tons of TNT. Multiplying 20 million by fifteen thousand, the number stands at 3000000000 tons. Comparing the volcanic eruptions with the "Krakatoa" in 1883, there is little idea about this energy level. Everything that was in the blast zone was destroyed. But the energy level of our nuclear explosion is almost fifteen times higher.

Now comes the atomic bomb. Immediately after the explosion, a fireball will form around the area of 50 km and evaporates to say whatever lies ahead in its path. At the same time, it will burn everything finding in the field of 3000 square kilometers. Anything within 250 kilometers of the center of the explosion will continue to burn. And the blast can be heard all over the world! The ''Mushroom Cloud' of nuclear eruptions can be seen up to 50 km high. This distance is equal to half the distance from the earth to the path of space. After about a week of fires, when a large part of the world's lungs will exhaust, there will be another serious problem. The radioactivity of nuclear explosions will spread rapidly across the globe. The thunderstorm will begin. Earth's temperature will drop abnormally. After the death of a large number of animals in a blaze, most of the animals will be killed in the snow when the temperature falls. This torrent is enough to erase the mark of human civilization as a whole.
