Thought experiment ( suggested episode for the Twilight Zone).
1) Imagine everyone in Hiroshima (population : 1.1 Million) today were teleported to Detroit.
2) Now imagine the same -— everyone in Detroit (population : 950,000) are teleported to Hiroshima.
What would happen 25 years later ?
I’d like Rod Serling to write a script and 30 minute show on that.
Well, Detroit would look quite nice in a whole lot less than 25 years. As for Hiroshima ... Japan forgave us once, more or less, but that was just over a couple of nukes. I doubt they would be so tolerant if we dumped a million kooks on them. It's sad, but it's the people who created that destruction in their own back yards.
Here’s a chilling thought for Twilight Zone fans.
Aside from avoiding further and massive loss of American lives as our armed forces advanced on Japan, scientists were allegedly interested in nuking Japan for another reason: learning of the impact it would have on the environment.
Satisfied that no permenant damage was done, plans for the Greening of America were drawn up.
