Human beings must always understand the principle of being prepared for danger in times of peace. Although the environment we live in nowadays looks very stable, there are actually many dangers hidden in it. For example, have you ever thought about such a question, will mankind go to extinction in the future, or will there be end? Nowadays, human activities have been involved in all aspects, and the damage to the ecological environment is very serious. Maybe one day in the future, the fate of human beings will be ruined because of these behaviors.
Is Hawking’s prediction coming true? Japan announced that Fukushima sewage will enter the sea, which may damage human DNA
The famous physicist Hawking once put forward such a point of view before his death. He believed that the time left for mankind by the earth is not much, maybe only 200 years or so. If human civilization wants to continue, it needs to be at 2200. Leave the earth and immigrate to space before the year, otherwise human civilization will be completely destroyed. Now that Hawking has passed away, and the awakening motto he left to people, many people are very worried, but some people think that Hawking is just creating a “doomsday panic.” However, nowadays, dozens of facts have proved that this prediction seems to be slowly coming true. For example, some time ago, Japan confirmed that Fukushima’s sewage was discharged into the Pacific Ocean. We also deeply feel that it may suffer the consequences. The deadline is getting shorter and shorter.
As a developed country, Japan is also an island country surrounded by the sea. Last year, Japan stated that the Great Japan Earthquake that occurred in 2011 had a devastating impact on the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. In order to cool the nuclear reactor in Fukushima, they have been using sea water for cooling in the past ten years. The cooled nuclear waste water is then stored in the tank. Since these storage tanks are now full, Japan has decided to treat the nuclear waste water and discharge it into the Pacific Ocean. This plan was passed this year, and starting next year, about 1.37 million tons of nuclear waste water will be discharged into the sea one after another.
The Japanese side stated that these nuclear waste waters are actually not that dangerous, they are in full compliance with the standards, and they are even drinkable. However, it should be understood that nuclear wastewater like this is completely different from the cooling water of ordinary power plants. Power plants all over the world produce cooling water, but they will not have much impact. However, the nuclear wastewater from the Fukushima nuclear power plant That said, it contains a lot of radioactive materials, and the current level of human technology is not yet capable of clearing all of these radioactive materials. Afterwards, with the negative effects of organisms and ocean currents, the seas all over the world may be polluted, and the consequences will be very serious. Among them, human DNA may also be damaged.
We all know that human DNA is the main genetic material of the human body, and it is susceptible to genetic mutations due to some external influences, among which radioactive elements are very important. The radioactive elements in the nuclear waste water discharged by Japan take a very long time to degrade. If it enters the ocean, although it will not produce some adverse reactions soon, for the organisms in the ocean, these substances will Enriched in the body, it will eventually enter the human body. As a result, it will gradually cause damage to organs, or even damage the human body’s DNA, and may cause cancer, which is irreversible. If there is a DNA impact, it may continue to be inherited.
All in all, if such nuclear waste water is discharged into the sea, it will undoubtedly have a very large impact on humans all over the world. And once such an act is implemented, a nuclear pollution crisis will be caused worldwide. It can be seen that everything that is happening now seems to be slowly confirming that Hawking’s prediction may really come true.
