Nuke by Jason-C Nuke by Jason-C
Inspired by the "debate" that the Australian government is trying to kickstart on building nuclear power stations all over the country. Most of us realise that this pitiful "debate" amounts to nothing more than government reprasentatives talking at us through the media so that we get used to the idea, so that they will face minimum opposition when they actually start building the reactors.

Love how the red/black ball looks so THREATENING. No mean feat with abstract objects.

I agree with your comments about the Australian government, by the way. Interesting to see them try to demonise wind power while trying to push nuclear down our throats (far more expensive per watt than wind, even setting aside the dangers).

Thanks man, that's exactly the feeling I was trying to communicate. :nod: If the government can make Nuclear Energy look like an environmentally friendly option, and the people here buy it, I'll probably give it up and move to Sweden. :idea:

Oh, so you've moved on have you. Well, excuse me while I continue using a .hdr file that is old and passe and one you have become bored with. Maybe one day in the distant future, I'll ascend to your level of utter awesomery, and on that great and glorious day, I'll look back at my previous use of ccc.hdr with shame, horror, and despair.

I wanna play catch with the red one, but not if it'll asplode all over me. That's gross.

I'm against them being built. You wouldn't want to play catch with these things, they're likely to explode and kill everything within a 150 km radius, poison the earth for over a million years, and make an ear-popping "BANG!!!" sound. :aww:

I didn't mean it like I like nukes becuase one can kill millions of people in a matter of seconds. It's because I think they are major milestone in human history. The era in which, we begin to understand the universe and the things that make it up. Now because that happened during a time of war, we do as we always do, try to make a weapon out of it. So we did and here we are now.

Yeah I agree, Nukes are a huge intellectual achievement, but the way they've been used since they were invented inspires no confidence.

But then again, we can't go back and live in the forest anymore, because we've already cut them all down and poisoned the soil. Have we passed the point of no return? :hmm:

If we have passed the point of no return, it can be undone. By ignoring it and moving forward. We will eventually be able to colonize other planets. Therefore, if we do completely destroy earth, we could move onto another planet. The only thing is preserving earth until that point. But would the knowlegde gained wihle we destroyed our home planet be worth it? I would say yes, but that may not be a question that could be accuratly answered by anyong that lives in today's era. I have confidence in humans as a group. Before we can truly move forward we may have to get rid those woh want to do bad in the world. From terrorists to just greedy people. In my mind the point of no return will never come. There is a massive amount of stability in the world but most people don't relize it. Mainly because the media filters all that out. At lkeast thats what it is like here in America.

It could be a fair while before we have either the technology or the resources to colonise planets that are lightyears away. Every other planet in our solar system is extremely hostile to life, and terraforming is unfeasable. We have a period of about 100 years before conditions on Earth deteriorate to the point where our civilisation as it exists now can no longer go on, and most coastal cities in existance in the world at the moment will likely be underwater by then.

I simply cannot believe that you would consider the destruction of Earth to be worth the knowlege we have gained, surely you know that one of the most important themes that has emerged in the overall scientific view is the knowlege that Humans are merely one small part of a much larger system of life on this planet. That system of life nurtured us through over a billion years of evolutionary growth, and created a paradise of amazing and spectacular lifeforms on this planet which is almost certainly unique in the universe.

Science knows that Humans CAN NOT exist in isolation from the Earths Biosphere, and that is why the vast majority of scientists around the world are doing everything in their power to stop the destruction of life on this planet, which will inevatably involve the destruction of the human race. Scientific knowlege has been hijacked from the scientists that discovered it and been put into the service of the tyrannical governments, and the ignorant masses that don't care who rules over them as long as they can buy a house and car and be guarateed their own little slice of the pie.

In the end, I believe that scientific knowlege can be gained without the loss of our world. But if I had to make an absolute choice between A. scientific knowlege and enlightenment, or B. a world where we could live with the sun shining on our faces, fresh and clean water to drink and swim in, clean untainted soil to grow natural food, and wide biodeversity that would ensure the continued march of life and evolution- I would chose B. But maybe there might have been the chance to have both. As a species we seem to have chosen A to the absolute rejection of B, even when A tells us that B is essential for our own survival. That being the case, how can Humans possibly continue to live?

It's our own brain that seems to our worst enemy. Humans have the drive to continue to innovate, to conqur, to design, to build, and to destroy. In the process of building, there is destroying. The decline of our planet began somewhere between 1800 and 1900 when machines were first being created and used. The machines were made with no consideration to the envirment. Mainly because no one knew what the exhaust for example, would do and what harm it would cause. Since then, humans have done what they do best, continued to innovate, design, build and destroy. We now live in a world were the machines are everywhere. From cars to computers, to power plants. We also live in a world where animals have to be put in zoos not for our enjoyment and their well keeping, but so they don't go extit. We also live in a world where in Africa, there is one water spout for 700,000 people. We also live in a world in which in a mere ninty mintues a nuclaer device can wipe out all population from one section of the Earth. The worst part: The United States along has over 3,000 of these.

As for me, I do not know wether or not the destrution of Earth is worth the gain of that knowledge. That was just a question I was throwing out there. Now, if it should be answered quite so soon is beyond me. The Humans have no had technology for that long. Modern technology has only been around for just over a century. And look what we have done with it. Yes, it is a great thing but it needs to be controlled. It needs to be enviromentally friendly. If not, and the decay of Earth which we live on may soon see the fat lady sing. But how long is soon? We have been poulliting the Earth for only a century. Earth has a timeline that goes back 5 billion years. I don't see us beyond the point of no return. When it comes down to it, our enemy isn't Earth or the machines that we have created it is ourselves. Not the guy that lives down the street or the person you see on tv everyday. It is you and only you. Picking up trash on the beach isn't going to help. Finding a way to improve the world is. Which may be our biggest challenge yet.
