Complete chaos! That is how the events after the hurricane landed in Louisiana can be explained. The events proved just how unprepared we were as a country. Panic spread among people as well as law enforcement. “The famous New Orleans city and surrounding areas were hit worst, as much of it sits some 6 feet below sea level.
Untold numbers were trapped in mounds of concrete, steel and earth for days. It was the country’s worst quake in three decades, devastating this region of small cities and towns, and producing tremors that were felt as far away as Beijing and Vietnam. Aftershocks continued for months, producing additional casualties and damage. This series is a memorial to the earthquake’s victims and a testament to the strength and resolve of the survivors and the massive relief effort.” (http://www.noorimages.com/index.php?id=2721) This source from Blenkinsop’s website really tells us how horrible it was. Blenkinsop saw it before his eyes, so he speaks the truth.
Not only properties and nature are damaged, but also human. Strong Tornadoes can lead to about 30% of tornado deaths. The last one is Violent Tornado. These tornadoes are the most dangerous of the three types of tornadoes. They consist of Devastating Tornadoes (F4), Incredible Tornadoes (F5) and Inconceivable Tornadoes (F6).
This money to the baker could have been already accounted for in maybe other new renovations that would expand his business. Now the baker will have to put on hold the opportunity cost of expansion and purchase the new window. The flip side to the situation is that the glass maker will now make money from this incident that would have not been there originally. As he goes on to state that this money earned by the glass maker will in turn be spent by him on the merchant of his
In this story, it costs six francs to replace the window and the glazier receives six francs as payment for the workmanship. The idea that arises is that it is a positive to go around “breaking windows” to create jobs and circulate money flow, but in essence there is no real net benefit to restoring that of which was broken back to its original state. The shopkeeper could have spent his six francs elsewhere, such as buying new shoes or supplies for his shop, which in turn would stimulate the economy, creating a true net benefit. This accident has prevented him from spending his six francs elsewhere. Next Bastiat applies the parable of the broken window in a different way.
Normally you would think that if you hear the word “tornado” you would start panicking and start asking where and when is it going to happen. What would you say if someone tells you: “ Did you see the beautiful tornado that was formed yesterday in the evening”; you start wondering why that person used the word beautiful and tornado in the same sentence. People see tornadoes as dangerous natural phenomenons, but they don’t tend to know much about their power and are blinded by what they are told and shown, that their idea of what a tornado really is, is actually a distorted image. A tornado is a rotating column of air, in contact with the ground. In order to be a tornado it has to be in contact with both the ground and the cloud base.
In the story, “There Will Come Soft Rains”, Bradbury shows the destruction, and death of a large part of the human race, “The house stood alone in a city of rubble and ashes. This was the one house left standing. At night the ruined city gave off a radioactive glow which could be seen for miles.” It talks about the devastation of the whole city and also tells us that the disaster which took place the night before, was very severe, and most probably, no one survived. We can also infer that the damage caused was due to a man-made mistake, as it seems to be that a nuclear bomb had blown up in that city. For the audience then, in America, where the industrial revolution was in its midst in 1950, all the people were very worried about a
How is climate change affected by human activity and what are its consequences? Do you remember the day when hurricane Katrina caused widespread devastation along the central Gulf Coast states of the US? Are you shocked by the number 1,800 people who were killed during that event? This catastrophe was just one of many caused by the climate change. Although there are a lot of people not taking the consequences and their impact on global warming seriously, it`s already a huge danger thinking about future generations and the protection of humanity.
Storm is a disturbance of normal atmospheric conditions, manifesting itself by strong winds and often accompanied by rain, thunder and lightning, snow, hail, or sleet. Storms generally lead to negative impacts to lives and property, such as storm surge, heavy rain or snow (causing flooding or road impassibility), lightning, wildfires, and vertical wind shear. In Arizona there are many types of storms which hit the state and one of the most kinds of storms that occur in Arizona are the Tornadoes and Dust Devils. The first kind that I will talk about it is Tornadoes. Tornadoes are often called the most destructive of storms.
The Chernobyl accident that took place in 1986 is worst ever nuclear disaster faced by mankind. The accident that took place on April, 1986 is the result of a flawed reactor design and incompetent personals that were not properly trained. As a result of the accident, extremely harmful and toxic radioactive elements were released into the environment, the fallout of which is felt even to this day. The accident had tremendous health, economic, social and environmental consequences and it severely affected the lives of a huge section of population in the countries of Ukraine, Russia and Belarus. The main radioactive elements that cause maximum damage to the affected population were iodine-131 and caesium-137.
