You know that saying “You play with fire?…” It seems like that’s our relationship with technology and the world around us. For centuries, humanity’s been trying to harness the elements, generate energy and make products that we can use. All of these things are meant to make our lives easier, but sometimes, those attempts and our lack of hubris, lead to disaster.
In the course of history, our attempts at dominion over science and nature, have had devastating consequences. These examples are the worst of the worst of disasters that have resulted from accidents and human intervention and poor judgements.
