2月20日バレーオブファイヤー訪問。ラスベガスから車で1時間15分、55マイル北東にあるネバダ州州立公園です。 "ValleyofFire State Park, Nevada": We visited there on Sunday, February 20, 2011. It's located about 55 miles, 75 minute northeast from Las Vegas by car.
We drove Free Way 15 to North for 35 miles (56 km), got off at Exit 75, and drove another 20 minutes to get to the entrance gate. Inside the state park we drove around and stop at several places for one and a half minutes.
We are grateful that there are mother Nature near Las Vegas, such as Red Rock Canyon and Valley of Fire. But as I think about it, US government has done 925 nuclear bomb testing between 1951 and 1992 at Nevada National Security Site (NNSS), formally called Nevada Testing Site (NTS). I heard it's just 1 hour 30 minutes north of Las Vegas. I just realized the mother nature had been destroyed by human beings--American government did that.
Lately carbon dioxide had been blamed for the Earth's greenhouse effects and destruction of Ozone layer, but carbon dioxide help photosynthesis of plants. Radiation and radio active particles from Uranium and Plutonium only create "death ashes". The top causes ofgreenhouse effects and Ozone layer destruction might be radiation from nuclear testing and Nuclear power plants.
