Anyone that the plague came upon, caused reddening stains on the face and the body would appear, which caused the individual to be thrown in a secluded quarantine factory. This disease appeared in over less than an hour. During this time no one could find the cure for this impeccable disease. As time goes on mass destruction is steady rising in the city. When President Toro heard of this distraught news he was horrified of the mass destruction that was going on.
The first couple of years were not easy for the settlers. The question is Why did so many colonist die? To start off with, one of the problems they faced was environmental problems. Many of Jamestown’s colonist died because of brackish water which was some salty water due to the mixture of fresh and salt water, because of the tides that would happen twice daily. Also, they would dump their human waste into the water and make it even more contaminated so when the people of Jamestown would drink or use the water it would make them ill and even to the point that they died.
Environmental Hazards a. In the St. Lawrence River, lots of industry has resulted in high levels of toxic chemical such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) and heavy metals. b. Because these toxins affect not only one specie but also all of species that are interconnected by food chain. c. These pollution decline beluga’s immune system, get disease easily that linked to low birth rates of belugas which have lived in the St. Lawrence River.
Fracking also created huge natural losses such as it crates pollution, destruction of forests to create its pipe lines. The pipe lines they use are also not long lasting as there is gas vapors in water because of leakage in pipe lines. From every twenty pipe lines, one is leaking that increases pollution. Gas burners used to store natural gas creates noise pollution more than a jet engine. It also have connection to increasing sexual diseases.
Both these places took the real brunt of the accident and were massively affected. The nuclear plant at Chernobyl was utilizing the RBMK-1000 reactors built in the Soviet Union and it had major design flaws. On the early morning of April 26, 1986 the personals at the plant hastily lowered the super heated nuclear fuel rods into the water that is used for cooling the reactors. This created lots of steam that in turn increased the nuclear reaction particularly in the reactor number 4. This produced an immense amount of energy casing a massive explosion in the reactor.
They claim that this has been going on for 30 years. PCB’s are very dangerous. It is said that some of the fish were deformed or adnomoral. PCB's can be very harmful to humans, especially pregnant woman. If pregnant woman eat a large amount of contaminated fish from the Hudson River their children are more likely to be born with birth defects.
In other cases, the algae blooms from eutrophication turn out to be incredibly toxic species (National Academy of Sciences 696). One particularly nasty algae is Pfiesteria piscicida which emits toxins that break down the skin of fish, causing bleeding and sores and ending in mass fish death (Howarth 39). In August 2005, a dairy farm in Western New York experienced a manure lagoon collapse, which resulted in 3 million gallons of manure funneling into the nearby Black River, where it killed as many as 250,000 fish, brought all recreation to a halt, and forced the city of
Joseph Walker 2/10/12 Intro to Security The Station Nightclub Fire There were many issues regarding this nightclub that caused this horrible fire that claimed the lives of 100 people. There were a couple threats involved that made this fire so bad. The main threat that happened was the pyrotechnics failed and ignited a flame on the stage. One of the bad design flaws of this building was that they used a highly flammable insulation. This insulation is known as polyurethane foam insulation.
Businesses were flooded along the Texas coast and lost all of their vital technology such as computers, telephones, and other office equipment. This caused a huge burden on many businesses and some businesses were totally destroyed, which left many workers unemployed. Many homes were flooded from the storm surge that got as high as twenty feet. In one city alone, 3,382 out of 3,400 homes were totally destroyed due to flooding. This causes thousands of people to become homeless and displaced.
Factories create equipment that destroys species in the ocean. When these species are destroyed the food chain is ruined and this threatens the ocean. Over Fishing is also harming the ocean. Entire populations of fish are being killed. Over fishing occurs when there are more fish caught than fish in the ocean to sustain fish stock.
