Four kilometers of pine trees turned reddish-brown after the accident. This is where the name “Red Forest” was earned. Animals near the badly affected areas either died or stopped reproducing. The radiation caused numerous problems to humans as well, including Down's Syndrome, chromosomal aberrations, mutations, leukemia, thyroid cancer, and birth defects. Social & Economic Effect The tragic accident cost a huge sum of money.
The new weapon napalm was used to burn villages many lives in Vietnam were lost as they were in South Africa. Both countries were both ruins and its people were angry as is shown in the language of the two poems. Both these poems are full of bitterness. The black poet who wrote Nothing’s Changed uses a vicious irony “we know where we belong” to show that he feels blacks and whites will never truly reconcile. His pent - up rage is expressed again in the final stanza “ Hands burn for a stone, a bomb to shiver down the glass”.
The genocide in Darfur, Sudan has already caused hundreds of thousands of Darfuris to die and cause more than 2 million people to be homeless. The genocide began in early 2003 when members of two rebel groups revolted against the Sudanese government in Khartoum alleging systematic neglect of the inhabitants of Darfur. The two rebel groups are the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) and the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA). The government responded by launching an assault against these two rebel groups. Black Arabs were being discriminated against because they were black and they were being told that they weren't in the right religion.
| 1 in 5 people lost their jobs because many buildings were destroyed, Haiti’s large industry clothing was one of the worst affected, and were a lot of people lost their jobs. | 250,000 homes, 30,000 other building were either destroyed or badly damaged this included the presidents palace and around 60% of the government buildings. | Because of the large number of deaths the hospitals reached their capacity and bodies had to be piled up out on the streets. | Transport and communication links were badly damaged and destroyed, things like bridges. | The amount of bodies out on the street caused a lot of diseases to spread, diseases like, cholera.
Because over 100,000 people died bodies had to be buried in mass graves. Communication systems and transport routes were damaged by the earthquake so emergency aid was extremely difficult. Workers and survivors alike became angry at this lack of aid and looting and riots broke out in many areas. Aftershocks are still occurring reaching up to 5.9 on the Richter scale. Even though the process is slow Haiti is recovering many charities have been set up to provide emergency housing, food and other areas of the recovery.
Poor harvests, famine, a lack of freedom and repressive policies meant that Russia was a country that was teetering on the brink of revolution long before dissatisfied factory workers marched on the Winter Palace in St Petersburg. Some of the causes of the 1905 revolution were due to poor working and living conditions. For instance, up to 15 people would share one room to live in, because of this demonstrations such as the one outside the Winter Palace commonly known as Bloody Sunday took place. 100’s were killed due to horrific misunderstanding by the Russian army. In many ways this helped fuel Russian Revolt.
It is an unfortunate incident, only to become even more devastating to the Christian peoples. The Armenians, the Pontic Greeks, and the Assyrians were all forced from their homes by gunpoint and made to march all day. They left their homes in the lush, green lands into the exceedingly hot, dry desert with very little food and water to survive. The combination of intense climate change, malnutrition, dehydration, disease, and violence led to thousands of these people dying during the marches. One of the most moving accounts of this atrocity is Thea Halo’s Not Even My Name.
Many were left unemployed and had to take to the road to find work. A severe drought also ravaged America, destroying crops causing vast, treeless plains. This came to be known as the Dust Bowl. The unrelenting drought and the plummeting prices of crops, ruined many farming families. The Great Depression is evident throughout the novel through the hardships that the people of Maycomb experience.
Instructor: Prof. Burdett Topic: The Dust Bowl and The Great Depression. The Dust Bowl was a period of severe dust storms causing major ecological and agricultural damage to The United States and Canadian Prairie Land from 1930 to 1936. This phenomenon was caused by severe drought followed by extensive farming without crop rotation and fallow fields. Deep plowing of the virgin topsoil of the Great Plains displaced the natural deep-rooted grasses that normally kept the soil in place and trapped moisture even during the periods of drought and high winds (Worster, Pg80-82). Millions of acres of farmland became useless and hundreds of thousands of people were forced to leave their homes and migrated to California and to other states.
