The use of nuclear weapons in war causes gruesome after effects.
Humankind and nature are equally affected. Those who do not perish
immediately suffer untold miseries: physical and mental trauma.
Ecological Adversity: Unfathomable destruction
will be caused to the natural resources. Apart from contaminating
the air and water, several plant and animal species will be endangered.
Large expanses of land will become uninhabitable. Humanity will
also perish as a result of these effects. Genetic disorders and
abnormalities will be one of the devastating effects of nuclear
Colossal Expenditure: The cost involved
in the production of nuclear weapons is immense and even developing
nations set aside a huge chunk of their budget for defense purposes.
However, the present expenditure on nuclear weapons incurred by
the world’s nuclear powers is several times the development aid
that is given to developing countries.
Nuclear Waste: The disposal of nuclear
waste will be a problem as long as nuclear production persists.
Radioactive effluence if dumped into the sea harm marine life. However,
this material cannot be buried either as it will pollute underground
sources of water. Also nuclear waste remains radioactive for several
