Nuclear Radiation and Water Pollution

Published by admin February 28,2020

On the evening of January 5, Trump told the media on air force one that sanctions against Iraq would be "unprecedented" and dwarfed by US sanctions against Iraq. He said the United States has a very expensive air base in Iraq, costing billions of dollars. The U.S. military will not withdraw from Iraq until the Iraqi side reimburses the U.S. related expenses.

Tensions between Iraq and the United States will not only cause wars, but also affect neighboring countries, inevitably causing people's panic.

On the view of war, Einstein said that nuclear reaction was the most failed research in his life. If human beings used nuclear weapons in the Third World War, human beings might die. Einstein discovered the theory of relativity and developed nuclear weapons. Although he regretted the research, it still passed down. After the study of the atomic bomb, Einstein left behind a very classic saying: " I don't know what weapons to use for the Third World War, but I know that the fourth World War must use stones and sticks." It's not hard to understand the meaning. Nuclear weapons are powerful. Once they are used in a war, the world will be destroyed.

During the Second World War, in order to reduce the losses in the war, the United States dropped atomic bombs on Japan. Hiroshima and Nagasaki are still suffering from nuclear radiation effects such as cancer, leukaemia and skin burns. According to the statistics of relevant Japanese departments, to date, the death toll caused by the atomic bombing in Hiroshima and Nagasaki has exceeded 250000 and 140000 respectively.

Not only that, nine years ago, Japan's nuclear radiation leakage event posed a huge threat to the entire marine ecosystem. Japan acknowledged that 1.12 million tons of nuclear waste water with strong nuclear radiation had no choice but to discharge into the Pacific Ocean. According to the international organization's monitoring of the sea area near the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan: The radioactive material in the sea area around the nuclear power plant is significantly higher than that in other water.

It has been reported that the U.S. Coast has detected the leakage of nuclear materials from the Fukushima nuclear power plant, indicating that nuclear pollutants have entered the global environmental cycle. In 2016, it was reported that the radioactive element cesium-134 was detected in salmon on the west coast of Canada.

These radioactive materials, from seaweed to small fish to large fish, will eventually enter the human body with the end of the food chain. Nuclear radiation has a great impact on the environment, including air, soil, sea water and underground water.

Pure water is not radioactive. Radioisotopes exist in impurities and dissolved salts in water. The water can be treated into pure water by precipitation, filtration, distillation and other methods, but the cost of this method is too high, so it is only suitable for domestic RO water filter. Even if drinking pure water, there is no way to avoid nuclear radiation from other channels.

It's impossible to imagine how serious the consequences would be if a million tons of nuclear waste water with nuclear radiation went into the Pacific Ocean cycle.
