From 1945 - 1998 There Was 2053 Nuclear Explosions... 2053.
This video shows where, when and who were the cause of the nuclear explosions.
Congratulations USA you won with the most nuclear explosions, Great Job.
1st : USA 1032
2nd : Russia 715
3rd : France 210
4th = : UK & China 45
6th : India 4
7th : Pakistan 2
Well done to all on the list. You're all Heroes.
The Data from the video stats i posted were based mostly on numbers provided from the Swedish Defense Research Establishment (FOI) and the Stockholm
International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) in 2000
It blows me away that the Pure number of these explosions needed to be had, DISGUSTING.
It took around 30 years for Chernobyl to clear up enough with the radiation it left. This certainly hurt/destroyed animals and plant life so i Figure
Fragile Earth is the right Forum for this.
Im happy that my country is Nuclear Free. And i hope it always will be! Get away from Nuclear people.

Does anybody else wonder how many countries laugh at the way Russia and the USA have crapped in their own nests? Destroy the country by contaminating
the land and the people for generations to come!
Man is a blight upon the earth...
The only two that were detonated over populated cities without warning.
The Scientists worked tirelessly to build the A-Bomb thinking that it would be the ultimate deterrent to war, they never stopped to consider that they
(Administration and Military) would actually use it.
In the end, it's probably a good thing that mankind has this self-destruct capability.
When we become more evil than good, the use of these weapons becomes inevitable...
It's a shame. It's a shame humans must invent more ways to destroy one another and more powerful weapons with which to do it. It's a shame that
they must show these off to the world every few months as if to say "Hey, look how many more we made this year!" It's a shame we must destroy the
planet while we destroy ourselves. It's a damn shame.
Maybe one day man will see the err of his ways and will no longer see the need for destruction.
No matter how many dust mites are on that whale it will never be enough to overcome, harm, or inconvenience it in any way. The whale will not even
know they exist. Such is the same with nuclear explosions. Even the largest nuclear detonation ever is so small when compared to the size of the earth
you could not witness both at the same time in all their glory with your eyes.
Just saying... There isn't much we as the human race can create that will hurt the Earth. Earth will be here many billions of years after we destroy
ourselves and the life will come back after we destroy it too. We are doing nothing but dooming ourselves. Earth will prevail, as will the life that
lives on her. The human race is doomed, it was doomed from it's very conception.

Lets all take 2,053 Nuclear explosions on planet earth..... lets say there were 25 pounds of fissile material in each bomb...
2053 x 25 = 51325 / 2000 = 25.6625 U.S. tons of fissile material in all the nuclear tests in all the world deposited somewhere on the planet.
And that's not the scary part.....
Did you know the US has way more than that in spent fuel pools alone? If you factor in all the NPP's on the planet, there is most likely somewhere
between 3 to 5 times all the nuclear bombs ever exploded? And that doesn't factor all the fuel that will be used in the future.
Just in spent fuel pools.
Now add in all the nuclear waste stored at sites all over the world or in some cases, dumped right into the ocean, and it becomes very very easy to
see that mankind has greatly increased a lot of types of ionizing radiation.
dont worry though.... radiation is nothing worse than a couple of banana's and a bag of potato chips.
