By Ralph CoppinsTuesday August 8 2000The effects of the atomic bomb were terrible Theres no doubt in my mind that the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were a costly mistake Atomic bombs produce heat millions of degrees high and visible ultraviolet and inferred rays Everyone and everything exposed to their blast is affected No one is left untouched whether it be emotional or physical in many cases both However many members of the science community argue that the atomic bomb was a great advance in technology and see their effect on Hiroshima and Nagasaki as a scientific experiment People from the defence department in government also see the bomb as great weapons in national defenceWhen reading my paper you must decide for yourself the moral issues involved with using atomic bombs in warfareThe day after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima it rained all day The rain was pitch black and very cold Pacific War Research Society A huge cloud of dust covered the sun and made what was left of the city very dark Realising the bombs effect on climate a group of scientists came up with the Nuclear Winter Theory in 1983 The theory states that if only one half the nuclear warheads in the United States were exploded there would be enough smoke and dust in the atmosphere to block sunlight for several months destroying all plant life and creating a subfreezing climate until the dust dispersed Although the US Department of Defence acknowledges the validity of this theory they say that it wont affect its defence policies on how many warheads are keptAlthough atomic bombs can have a catastrophic effect on climate we learned that their effect on buildings is almost as bad With the bombings in World War 2 we saw their effect on historic landmarks houses and office buildings In Hiroshima the blast demolished all buildings except those that were earthquake resistant Some buildings just vanished
