Forest Fire

Les feux de forêts et de tourbières tuent immédiatement ou à petit feu. L’inhalation des particules et des fumées toxiques dégrade la santé humaine et la santé animale. Les incendies de forêts sont des producteurs et des exportateurs à longue distance de pollution. La destruction des forêts par le feu accélère l’érosion, les inondations et les glissements de terrains.

Robin des Bois and GEIDE post-disaster

 

attention-au-feu-RobinDesBois-2012Nobody can be blamed for the outbreak and consequences of earthquakes of large magnitude. For forest fires, it’s a different story. Only the lightning escapes human responsibility. Man is the cause of more than 9 out of 10 forest fires.

Barbecues, gas stoves, cigarettes, motorcycle incursions, quadbikes or other vehicles with internal combustion engines, campfires, fireworks and combustible wastes are all risks of fire in an environment that is vulnerable to conflagration.

“Forest Fires: Beware the Radioactive Fallout”

The site Arzamas-16 is threatened by forest fires since the middle of July 2010. The exact location of the storage and waste on the site is unknown. The current management of plutonium storage, enriched uranium and nuclear warheads are the subject of diverging information. The military site is in activity since 1946. For more than half a century, experiments and nuclear activities have left undeniable traces on the site (see the assembly of photos). If the fire reaches strategic and radioactive sectors this could spark a major event but also cause global contamination. The Russian government and fire fighters lack of insight to foresee the risk caused by the fires around this dangerous site and to control them is shocking.
