    Doesn't hurt the environment...

    Just read the AP wire off CNN. Link to article about Russia's "Dad of all bombs"

    A particular favorite snippet:

    You know, apart from blowing up the environment. The dirt's still good to eat!

    Finally, a green bomb.
    They told me to wear more lycra, and I said "no, no, no."

    I should also add that I am not trying to make any kind of politico-statement. I'm just floored by the idea that a BOMB isn't 'bad' for the environment.

    It's like saying "this poisonous plant isn't harmful to humans (because it freezes your respiratory system and you die from lack of oxygen instead).

    It is good for the environment. It turns every living thing w/in its blast radius into fertilizer and it's non-radioactive.

    Actually Eboo, there has been a search for a weapon that would kill the people and leave the environment intact for later occupation for some time now.

    Extend your timescale a little bit and nothing we do really has any consequential effect on anything, assuming we're cleaver enough to find a way to neutralize ourselves.

    If humanity vanished, 65,000,000 years from now all you're going to find of us are ceramics. Maybe some fossils. Maybe some of the crap we left on the Moon.

    All of this is optimistic conjecture, of course.

    Neutron bomb
    This intense burst of high-energy neutrons is intended as the principal mechanism of killing, although a large amount of heat and blast is also produced. A common idea is that a neutron bomb "leaves the infrastructure intact" however current designs have yields in the kiloton range, the detonation of which could cause heavy destruction through blast and heat effects. A yield of one kiloton is not much for a nuclear weapon but it is nearly two orders of magnitude (100x) bigger than the most powerful conventional bombs. The blast from a neutron bomb may be enough to level almost any civilian structures inside the lethal radiation range.

    Although it sounds like they still have a few kinks to work out.

    Is that anything like the Neutron Dance?

    And lots of plastics.

    There's a book and website about what would happen if us humans disappeared.

    The author has obviously seen Planet of the Apes, check out the Statue of Liberty pic in New York without us.
