99% of scientists agree the earth’s climate is drastically changing at a rapid rate, faster than they can comprehend. Oilfield and other companies pay off the other one percent of climate scientists to try and cover up this obscenity.
Carbon accounts for just a fraction of the cause of the global warming issues, according to scientists such as Randall Carlson. The biggest culprit is methane. It is about 17 times more toxic than carbon being expelled by oil and other facilities.
As the ice melts in the ocean, it releases trapped methane from millions of years of frozen plant material. Greenland’s ice sheets are melting so quickly, one can literally watch them melt off and flood into the ocean. If the entire 2,850,000 km3 (684,000 cu mi) of ice were to melt, worldwide sea levels would increase 24 ft. (7.2 m) and 100 of the world's most populated cities would be completely underwater.
Who knows accurately how long it would actually take for the second largest ice sheets to completely melt; exponential growth could see it in as little as a 20 years. Not to mention the largest ice sheets, Antarctica, have now begun to melt as well.
It is human nature not to take responsibilities for our careless actions, it is easier to blame the earth itself. Climate scientists concluded for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) it is 100% our fault for this disastrous world outcome.
Vast amounts of hazardous waste have been introduced into our atmosphere, and tons of others that have been around for years. Oil and manufacturing corporations are raping the earth of natural resources, cutting down forests and expelling deadly pollutants back into our air. Nuclear technology has proven we can destroy places that will take thousands of years to restore. Mining has shown to be lethal to human lives as black lung is a serious issue, more so during the boom of the coal mines decades ago.
We created this mess, now we have the technology to fix it. Or human invasion will be able to create the technology to find a way to clean up these inappropriate deadly spaces.
Here are 10 of the worst places on the planet…
10 Agbogbloshie, Ghana – E-waste
9 9.Norilsk, Russia – Mining and Smelting
8 Niger River Delta, Nigeria – Oil Spills
7 Matanza-Riachuelo, Argentina – Industrial Pollution
6 Hazaribagh, Bangladesh – Tanneries
5 Citarum River Basin, Indonesia – Industrial and Domestic Pollution
4 Dzerzhisk, Russia – Chemical Manufacturing
3 Chernobyl, Ukraine – Nuclear Accident
2 Fukushima Daiichi, Japan – Nuclear Disaster
After a major earthquake hit, a massive 15-meter tsunami plummeted the supply and cooling of three reactors in Fukushima, creating a nuclear incident on March 11, 2011. The three cores crumbled in the first few days. Over 280,000 tons of chemical waste water is being kept in the plant as of today. In addition, around 100,000 tons are thought to be in the basement of the four reactors in the turbine buildings. They even tried to send robots in, but they melted when they got too close. People living within the area are greatly at risk of all sorts of cancers. One older gentleman has taken it upon himself to feed the animals who were left behind daily, most of which are abandoned pets. He figures it will take decades to develop cancer and at his age he does not have that much time left.
1 Lake Karachay, Russia
Said to be the most polluted place on earth is yet another place in Russia. Lake Kararchay it is not the ideal camping spot to take the family. It is close to the Mayak Production Association, which is the biggest and drippiest nuclear facility in Russia. It has been pouring and leaking waste into the river that flows into the lake since the 1950s. It was kept a secret from the rest of the planet until the middle of 1990. Unfortunately, it had several nuclear meltdowns and as a result has leaked toxic waste into the Lake Karachay. Before it was finally acknowledged, the close by region of Chelyabink saw a 40 percent increase in leukemia, a 25 percent increase in birth effects, and an overall 20 percent increase in cancer. It only takes about an hour of exposure to the radiation at this lake to kill you.
