i know its a bad thing to say but you did not see what I saw last night:(
man I dont know if all the fruit is making me soft but before today i really didnt think much of saving the animals and protecting the forest blah blah
but after last night I feel like crying.... it was so sad:(
My dads friend went hunting and killed goats and pigs on his hunt. I was thinking.... what fun is it trying to shoot goats and pigs, they are kinda easy targets aren't they??? I can understand the sport in shooting birds but goats??? anyway so I was looking at the pics this idiot took on his hunt, it was on this particular photo a rush of thoughts crossed my mind..
"wow we humans are such a dangerous and cold species...." he was standing over the pig, one foot on the pigs head, the pig had the most frightened look on his face before he died with his tongue sticking out:(
and then I saw the next pic, i feel so sad just writing this:( I saw him feeding the most cutest most beautiful baby goats with a milk bottle...apparently he killed their mother and took the babies to raise himself...
what is this world I am living in....
yep if i go out for the day an leave me buderigar in her cage soon as i get home she squaks at me lol ,like ive committed a crime aw shes so adorable i just wish shed stop tryin to kiss on the rabbit ew
I feel like we cannot let the human race go extinct because someone needs to repair the damage done by the last couple of generations.
The Earth will repair the damage, it will exist for another 4 billion years or so and we will not last that long. Any damage we do will be corrected, it will probably be precipitated by the place becoming uninhabitable, then it will rebuild in the inevitable way it has in the past.
The glass is always completely full, it is just the ratio of water to air that changes.
I'm not sure where you are getting 4 billion from. It could last another 6-8 billion when the sun finally goes out or it could last only another couple of years as we could be hit by a gigantic asteroid. Nuclear reactors don't shut themselves down. In the hypothetical "the human race goes extinct" scenario everyone forgets that if that were to happen nuclear reactors would after a few weeks when they run out of back up diesel overheat causing massive nuclear explosions and a nuclear winter. This could possibly kill every species on Earth. I'd much prefer the human intervention of shutting down these reactors, figuring out what to do with all the nuclear waste we've already created, as well as attacking the whole global warming issue. Yeah the Earth can heal itself but the question is, how big of a mess are we going to leave it in for nature to repair.
what do you think of the current situation with Fukashima?
"While the amount of radioactivity released into the environment in March 2011 has been estimated as between 10 percent and 50 percent of the fallout from the Chernobyl accident, the 400,000 tons of contaminated water stored on the Fukushima site contain more than 2.5 times the amount of radioactive cesium dispersed during the 1986 catastrophe in Ukraine.
So, where has this huge amount of highly contaminated water – enough to fill 160 Olympic-size swimming pools – come from? In the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the reactor cores of units 1, 2 and 3 melted through the reactor vessels into the concrete. Nobody knows how far the molten fuel went through the containment – radiation levels in the reactor buildings are lethal, while robots got stuck in the rubble and some never came back out.
The molten fuel still needs to be cooled constantly and the operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), injects about 400 tons of water into the perforated reactor vessels every day. That water washes out radioactive elements and runs straight through into the basements that were flooded during the tsunami. By 2015, over 600,000 tons of highly radioactive liquid are expected to have accumulated in temporary tanks, some underground, many bolted rather than welded together, and none ever conceived to hold this kind of liquid over the long term. The dangerous fluid is pumped around in four kilometer long makeshift tubes, many of them made of vinyl rather than steel, and plagued with numerous leaks in the winter when the above ground lines get hit by frost.
“We found water spread at the bottom level of tanks near the tank No.5... Therefore, we checked the water level of this tank, and… confirmed that the current water level is lower by approximately 3 meters than the normal level.”
TEPCO reportedly admitted that only 60 of 350 tanks in that area are equipped with volume gauges. “Inspection” is done visually by a worker with a radiation detector. Meanwhile, the soil around the leaking tank delivered a dose per hour equivalent to the legal limit for nuclear workers for five years. No remote radiation measuring devices, no remote handling.
The tank leak is just the latest in a long list of signs that things are going fundamentally wrong at the site of what could still turn out to be the most serious radiological event in history. And the situation could still get a lot worse. A massive spent fuel fire would likely dwarf the current dimensions of the catastrophe and could exceed the radioactivity releases of Chernobyl dozens of times. First, the pool walls could leak beyond the capacity to deliver cooling water or a reactor building could collapse following one of the hundreds of aftershocks. Then, the fuel cladding could ignite spontaneously releasing its entire radioactive inventory."
I'm assuming all of these backup systems are dependant upon computer systems and electricity correct? In the event that there is no electricity, no back up systems or these backup systems no longer work because there is no one to maintain them, then what happens?
ugh, i totally understand the feels bro. humans do not coexist. they take over, demolish, and then bitch about the mess they made while trying to turn a blind eye to it.
