Fossil fuels, when burnt, release a large amount of toxins into the environment. These are consumed by all living things and enter the food chain at all levels which means the…y are consumed, ultimately, by us. Early figures suggest that the UK smoking ban will save 40,000 lives in the first ten years. Carbon fuel emissions are consumed by everyone, not just smokers, so this would suggest that these will be responsible for many deaths. The worst nuclear accident so far has 20,000 deaths attributed to it along with suffering for many more others. If the emissions from a cigarette are compared to a coal fired power station it becomes alarmingly obvious that nuclear generated power has a much lower effect on our general well being. This does not preclude the fact that the waste generated from these will result in the need for storage that will render parts of our planet inhospitable for thousands of years but on a general health basis this is still better than the continual consumption of the toxins that are generated by the burning of fossil fuels. If we apply our current knowledge, and improved designs for power stations, nuclear fuel would appear to be a sensible replacement for fossil fuel that can support the transition to renewable energy.
And wher does it go...
The Titanic burned a total of 3,540 tons of coal, averaging 620 tons of coal per day at 21.7 knots. The Titanic had 5,892 tons of coal in approximate measure when she de…parted Southampton.
the titanic used 850 tonnes of coal each day
there was about 950 to fill each day
The number of calories a person burns in a day depends on a number of factors including: age, sex, height, weight, level of physical activity, and health. As a result it is i…mpossible to give a single answer. For an average adult in the developed world the number of calories they use might be roughly in the range of 1800 to 2800 calories per day.
The titanic used 825 tons of coal per day.
50% of carbon dioxode is released burnind coal
The coal was burned in the engine room on the very bottom floor. The word is... FURNACE
The Titanic had 159 coal-burning furnaces fueling the boilers.
32 additional tons
The furnaces on the Titanic required over 600 tons of coal everyday to provide steam power.
