What Man Has Done... To Man

Chernobyl 01 [Pdf/ePub] eBook

What Man Has Done... To Man by Jeff Blain Book Resume:

The Twentieth Century is lauded as the time period when more technological and scientific advances and breakthroughs were accomplished than all other centuries combined. Probably the most notable progress was in transportation when in the early years, Kitty Hawk marked the first flight which became the jet airplane allowing for global travel and Apollo 11 being our crowning achievement. Henry Ford developed assembly line production of the Model T, the horseless carriage, now the driverless carriage. Transistors gave us the Second Industrial Revolution and are today used everywhere. Computers are known as man’s “greatest invention.” Health was enhanced with the introduction of penicillin and polio vaccines. On the social scene, we witnessed the start, at least, of civil and women’s rights. And who can ever forget the impact of the chocolate chip cookie? However, equally etched into the annals of history are events like the “war to end all wars,” the Great Depression, and Vietnam War. What you are about to read will make these pale in comparison. You see, man created in that same span of time the greatest environmental disaster of modern history, the worst short-term atrocity ever committed, developed the “sickest” place on earth, and celebrated the most outstanding year in the history of mankind. Read, remember, and make certain to pass on to posterity what man has done to man.

Chernobyl Record

Chernobyl 01 [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Chernobyl Record by R.F Mould Book Resume:

The nuclear accident at Chernobyl on April 26, 1986 had a heavy impact on life, health, and the environment. It caused agony to people in the Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia and anxiety far away from these countries. The economic losses and social dislocation were severe in a region already under strain. It is now possible to make more accurate assessments of these effects than it was in the first few years following the catastrophe. An internationally known author, speaker, and medical physicist, Dr. Mould visited the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station in December 1987 and in June 1998. Chernobyl Record: The Definitive History of the Chernobyl Catastrophe begins with a brief description of why the accident occurred and of eye witness accounts. The book then examines the early medical response and follow up of patients with acute radiation syndrome, including power plant workers and liquidators, the evacuation and resettlement, the current and future status of the sarcophagus, dose measurement and estimation methods, population doses, the contamination of the environment, psychological illness in adults and thyroid cancer in children, and the predicted cancer incidence in the 21st century, including leukemia and solid cancers. Highly illustrated, the book includes color photographs of the early and late effects on the skin of firemen who fought the blaze, the control room where operators survived, the damage inside the sarcophagus, and the remaining radioactive fuel masses within the sarcophagus, such as the so-called "Elephant's Foot" mass for which samples were chipped off using Kalashnikov rifles. Authored by a member of the UK Government Delegation that attended the first post-accident conference in August 1986 at the IAEA in Vienna, the book also covers the accidents at Three Mile Island, Kyshtym, and Tokaimura; the effects of the Hiroshoma and Nagasaki atomic bombs; and information concerning the semi-palatinsk nuclear weapons test site in the former USSR.

La supplication

Chernobyl 01 [Pdf/ePub] eBook

La supplication by Svetlana Alexievitch Book Resume:

"Sur Tchernobyl, des dizaines d'ouvrages ont été écrits, des milliers de mètres de bandes vidéo tournées... Ce livre, cependant, parle non pas de Tchernobyl mais du monde de Tchernobyl dont nous ne connaissons presque rien, non pas de la catastrophe mais de ce qui a suivi, d'un monde nouveau et différent, pour lequel il n'y a pas de langage. " Trois années durant, j'ai voyagé et questionné des hommes et des femmes de générations, de destins, de tempéraments différents. Tchernobyl est leur monde. Il empoisonne tout autour d'eux, la terre, l'air, l'eau mais aussi tout en eux, la conscience, le temps, la vie intérieure. " Faire que ce que plusieurs racontent devienne l'Histoire : en voyageant, en cédant la parole à ces gens, j'ai souvent eu l'impression de noter le futur, notre futur. " Ainsi parle Svetlana Alexievitch de La Supplication. Tout comme l'oeuvre de Primo Levi sur Auschwitz ou celle d'Alexandre Soljenitsyne sur le Goulag, son livre nomme l'indicible en faisant entendre, pour la première fois, les voix suppliciées de Tchernobyl. Écrivain et journaliste biélorusse, dissidente soutenue par le Pen-Club et la Fondation Soros, rendue célèbre dans le monde entier par Les Cercueils de zinc, ouvrage mémorial sur la guerre d'Afghanistan, Svetlana Alexievitch a déjà reçu, en Allemagne, Le Prix du livre politique et Le Prix des Libraires pour La Supplication. Elle vient de recevoir le 8 octobre 2015 le Prix Nobel de littérature.

Chernobyl

Chernobyl 01 [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Chernobyl by Frederik Pohl Book Resume:

Chernobyl: The very name conjures the catastrophe that the world feared could happen someday at a nuclear power plant. On April 26, 1986, a power surge caused the core of one of the reactors to explode, spewing a cloud of radioactive steam into the Ukrainian air. More than four thousand people died, as many as a half-million suffered potentially cancer-causing exposure, and the city around the plant became a toxic wasteland in which nothing could live. Before the disaster at the Chernobyl plant, nuclear catastrophe had been only a fear, a threat. But when the Chernobyl plant was destroyed, all those fears were suddenly all too real.? ? Frederik Pohl's novel of this disaster was written months after the tragic events. He had the cooperation of many people inside the U.S.S.R. with access to technical information and first-person accounts of what is still the most tragic nuclear event in human history and only one of two level 7 nuclear accidents, along with the Fukushima disaster of 2011. This is fiction, but it is the most riveting, realistic account of what happened that has ever been written. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Traverser Tchernobyl

Chernobyl 01 [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Traverser Tchernobyl by Galia Ackerman Book Resume:

Depuis presque vingt ans, Galia Ackerman fréquente ceux qui sont la mémoire de Tchernobyl. Habitants de la zone restés malgré l'interdiction, travailleurs intermittents, liquidateurs, mais aussi scientifiques, artistes et ethnographes. Traverser Tchernobyl nous ouvre les portes de lieux insoupçonnés, composant un tableau unique et intime du désastre. Nous voici au sein de l'ancienne cité militaire ultra-secrète ; à la table des babouchkas, dans des villages abandonnés ; auprès d'un trafiquant de métaux contaminés ; entre les tombes du cimetière juif oublié ; au cœur de forêts irradiées, entourés de chevaux sauvages. Un récit personnel qui éclaire un parcours intellectuel semé de dialogues et de controverses – avec Vassili Nesterenko, Svetlana Alexievitch, Lina Kostenko, Igor Kostine, Paul Virilio – sur la façon de penser et de représenter la catastrophe. Un voyage sur une terre fantomatique, mais toujours vivante. Dans le monde d'après. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx LA PRESSE EN PARLE " Ici point de poésie des ruines, encore moins de nostalgie du soviétisme (honni dès l'enfance) mais une singulière familiarité. Laquelle ouvre à l'auteure bien des portes (les ressorts de l'administration sont plus affectifs qu'on ne veut le croire) et place le récit dans une grande justesse de ton. " Le Monde " Un récit personnel qui retrace vingt ans de voyages dans la zone interdite de Tchernobyl " Marc Weitzmann, France Culture " À la fois grave et extrêmement vivant. Un vrai roman russe. " Olivier Barrot, Un livre un jour, France 3 " Un récit pudique et anti-spectaculaire. " La Vie des Idées " Ses pérégrinations [...] s'avèrent haletantes. Sidérantes, la plupart des rencontres qu'elle y fait. Miraculeuse, son exhumation de la mémoire juive de ce no man's land. Uniques, les pages, plus métaphysiques, où elle dialogue avec certaines figures littéraires, scientifiques et artistiques. " Alexis Lacroix, Marianne " Un livre tissé d'humanité, de mots sensibles, de biographies bouleversantes. " Mediapart " Au fil de ces pages qui se lisent comme un roman, le lecteur plonge dans un monde étrange, où tout paraît normal et rien ne l'est vraiment. Se mêlent astucieusement les descriptions et les témoignages avec les analyses sur les conséquences sanitaires, écologiques, économiques et culturelles du désastre. " La Croix " La force de ce récit réside surtout dans les deux grandes qualités de l'auteur, au-delà de ses talents de narration et de description : l'empathie et la volonté de la vérité. " Alternatives Économiques " Ce n'est pas le premier livre que Galia Ackerman consacre au sujet, mais c'est le plus beau. " Jean Lebrun, La marche de l'histoire, France Inter " Un récit personnel et très intense. " RFI " Un remarquable ouvrage. " Reporterre " La tonalité de son récit, qui mêle témoignages et réflexion, est à la fois plus personnelle et moins dramatique que La Supplication de Svetlana Alexievitch. " Libération " Une réflexion philosophique, culturelle et anthropologique. " Politis " Ce que le journalisme littéraire peut faire de meilleur. " La Croix " Une indignation salutaire. " La Vie " Un livre émouvant et littéraire, qui raconte l'âme et la mélancolie de cette région où vivent encore 10.000 salariés de la centrale et quelques centaines de personnes âgées. " Le Figaro " Un live hanté et très touchant. " La Fnac

The causes of such an accident for long remained behind the veil of governmental secrecy.
