Are you thinking of the safest places on Earth from nuclear fallout? If so, you are at the right place. Insider Monkey has come with a trilling article now, and I must confess I really, extremely fear from nuclear fallouts. We – average people – can’t do anything against this if it happens. We cannot run away from it, and its long-term effects are unpredictable. After a nuclear war there will be a nuclear winter, say the experts and scientist. Just so you know, the northern hemisphere of our little planet Earth will be the most directly affected by a nuclear fallout: France, the USA, China, Pakistan, India, Russia, United Kingdom all possess nuclear weapons.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the safest places on Earth from nuclear fallout from their list.
The first one is Underground. Yes, it is not a place in the common sense of the term cheating but consider this: underground means that nuclear fallout won’t reach you. And there are already available bunkers or being built bunkers, notably by the super-rich. It still isn’t the best place to hide because you won’t be able to get out of your bunker for a while (if you’re claustrophobic, don’t even try) and breathe fresh air. Granted, “fresh air” might not exist anymore at that point. The second one is Easter Island, South Pacific ocean. Easter Island, in the South Pacific, is a Chilean island best known for the tall, towering figures of stones scattered across its land. It is in the southern hemisphere, though, so that’s a good point. Even though it is located 2,000 miles off the Chilean coast, the island is amazing to visit, from what I heard. Although I am not sure that having to stay for a long period in this bare place is the best of ideas. The last one on our list now is Tristan da Cunha, South Atlantic Ocean. Tristan da Cunha is the name of a small and remote volcanic island in the South Atlantic Ocean, owned by the British. According to their own website, Tristan da Cunha is “the remotest island in the world”. It’s off the coast of South Africa so deep in the ocean that nuclear fallout may be very much weakened when it reaches it. It actually is inhabited by 260 people so space won’t be a problem.
