The morality of atomic bombs

Comments Off

I’ve been listening to Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History podcasts for a while now and they’re fantastic. I look forward to episodes of his show more than any other media I consume.

The most recent episode is especially thought-provoking as it covers the morality of dropping the atomic bombs on Japan. He covers the escalation of air warfare and how things progressed to the point where it was considered acceptable to knowingly kill hundreds of thousands of civilians in a single attack.

The series on the fall of the Roman empire was also fantastic, and very long.

Windfarms apparently don’t harm bird populations

Windfarms do not cause long-term damage to bird populations, study finds. ┬áMaybe this will put that part of the debate to rest, although climate-change deniers don’t tend to listen to facts I guess.
