Transcript of Military Attacks

Military Attacks
By: April Willis, Noah Lind, Jonathan Green, & Jordan Gortney
Nuclear Destruction
Effects on The Economy
Decreases the amount of food, cash, and fuel in a nation.
Loss of a large percentage of workforce due to disability and death.
Can devastate a nation or cause it to go bankrupt.
Chemical Attacks
Gas prices in US have increased due to military attacks in the Middle East.
GDP (Gross Domestic Productivity) decreased rapidly after the attack of 9/11.
Negatively affect the environment
Cause many deaths and long-term disabilities for humans.
Agent Orange in Vietnam (1962-1971): Defoliated trees, destroyed crops, diminished wildlife, and contaminated soil and rivers (passed into fish, causing a big cut in the Vietnamese diet)
Agent orange causes birth defects and cancers.
Causes severe damage to the environment with a lot of radiation, ionization of the upper atmosphere, and much more. All of which cause destruction to hostile assets on the Earth.
The radiation involved may also cause cancer.
Mustard Gas (WWI)-
In WW1, Mustard gas was a popular weapon of war based on its ability to linger and the amount of time it took for victims to show symptoms of exposure. For some symptoms it took anywhere from 24-48 hours to show up. It also penetrated gas masks of the time.
Mustard gas injures over 1 million
soldiers and civilians and killed 100,000 people.
Military attacks, whether chemical attacks or nuclear, have a severely dangerous impact on the Earth.
With each attack, our environment is being disrupted, causing loss of important living materials like food, water, and plants. We need all of these things to survive. Contamination and depletion of these necessities leads to many deaths, killing off the human race.
The impact of both chemical and nuclear weapons on humans is life-changing and most of the time, fatal.
Overall Effect
With each attack, our resources and species are being destroyed and harmed. The more these attacks occur, the more we are at risk of death or serious harm.
If too many countries or regions were to go at war simultaneously (like if the US went to war with Syria), this could lead to catastrophe within the world.
Prices going up on essential materials, destruction of these materials, and the danger of such attacks puts a hindrance on our way of life. We could go hungry, become unemployed due to lack of funds for gas, and become poor and/or homeless. This has happened more as the years have gone by.
