Dangerous caesium-137, which has a long half-life, is still a problem. There are measurable levels in soils and some foods in a lot of Europe. Five million people still live in places with elevated radiation levels. It was caused by mankind because the people that built it did not build it will enough they did not look at the directions right. They had to do multiple indemediant changes the safety of humankind and still messed it up
I chose this topic because I like to look at nuclear plants explosions and I think they are very interesting. The pollution event took place because when there were building the power plant the workers did not build the power plant right.
No one really knows but when it did happen they were going to see how the power plant works off power and it did not work as planned. When it did happen they noticed that some similar incidents happened in America and thought it was weird.
Did you know that the Plant operators made several mistakes creating a poisonous and unstable environment in the reactor core. They thought that this was the most likely thing they thought it happened “Operators tried to reinsert rods to slow and control the nuclear reaction, but a design flaw in the control rods caused them to jam. The steam likely caused an explosion in the reactor, which, in turn, caused a second explosion seconds later.” because of the explosions it caused a bunch of different fires in the area and it was hard to stop the fire. It also set up a big cloud of radioactive smoke into the sky which spread to Europe it was as big as 400 times the size of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Surprisingly no one got taken to court. It got destroyed by the sky full of radioactive smoke and a little of it is left in Europe and caught fire to a lot of trees. They did not make any more laws after this event. It happened in the early morning It destroyed a new city named Pripyat it was so destroyed. The explosions killed two plant workers who were the first of several workers That died in hours of the accident. For the next days as emergency crews tried desperately to contain the fires and radiation leaks the death toll climbed as plant workers succumbed to acute radiation sickness. After the explosion there were really high winds That blow houses down It also blew all the leaves off the trees and blew them down. But that’s not to suggest that the area has returned to normal or will at any point in the near future Because of the long lived radiation in the region surrounding the former Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant the area won’t be safe for human habitation for at least 20000 years.
