Here is the link to the article

In this article, the writer Dylan Mattews depicts a soviet officer Stanislav Petrov who stopped a nuclear war from happening. Petrov and his crew had a warning sign of ICBM missiles launched by the USA towards the Soviet Union. There were two choices for Petrov to make, report it and start WW3 or not report it and run the risk of being nuked. Eventually, Petrov and his crew concluded that it was just a false alarm, which thankfully it was. Turns out the alarm was triggered by the sun’s reflection on the clouds, making it seem like there was an incoming missile. I like this article because I enjoy learning about history and interesting things that have happened in the past. I heard about this story a while ago but this article conveyed the thoughts I already had about this story. This man single-handedly stopped a nuclear war and the possible complete annihilation of the human race as we know it.

care of ethics

Care ethics is a personality trait that is needs to be practiced over time and with enough labour can help shape the world around us for the better. In order to create an ethics people who, have a good understand of the concept and that have experience in situation in which its needed. They can teach others how to act by explain to them or more importantly show them through their actions. The people can slowly learn how to use care of ethics in day to day lives. We would have to believe in environment having the same power and can equally affect us and we affect it. We need realize that we just can’t just abuse the environment and walk away and think nothing bad is going to happen. We would help preserve our ecosystem by not littering and using proper bins when throw away something. Or helping on a humanity scale by donation to a charity or going out to volunteer and help the not so fortunate. Some benefits of everyone adopting care by ethics is our environments and communities will be a lot safer and clean but on the other hand it will set a high standard for everyone and that just can’t happen because no one is perfect. I think we can try the best we can to adopt care of ethics, we can’t be perfect, but we can do our part to help the environment.

Ethics of care towards the environment would look like people treating the environment with respect and not to leave it worse for wear and destroy it.
