These are usually in balance with one another. If the natural web Is disturbed, the result may be disastrous. As a rule, the various populations of 5 organisms tend to adjust to seasonal and other changes, and the whole community stays in balance. Ironically, most disturbances come from man's activities.

When deer are very numerous, their enemies become numerous too, because there is so much to feed upon. The deer and their enemies stay in balance with one another. The man enters the scene. He considers animals such as wolves and mountain lions harmful. He kills as many animals as possible. When the animals that feed on deer arc killed; the deer multiply, without check.

Wacana 6 NUCLEAR ENERGY Nuclear energy is the energy contained in the nucleus, or centre, of an atom, It is the most powerful form of energy that exists. Only in this century have scientists learned how to .obtain nuclear energy. They have put is to constructive uses, as in electric power stations. They have also put it to destructive uses, as in the atomic bomb and the hydrogen bomb. Sometimes nuclear energy is called atomic energy because it is obtained 'from atoms. This is not a good choice of words. Other forms of energy can also be obtained from atoms. For example, chemical energy, also, comes from atoms. But it comes from reactions outside the atomic nuclei. Nuclei is the plural of nucleus. Chemical energy is released when coal, oil, gas and other fuels are burned. An atomic-bomb explosion shows how powerful nuclear energy is. You have probably read of nuclear explosions described, in terms of megatons, or million of tons of TNT. You may have known that TNT is the abbreviation of trinitrotoluene. It means a high explosive. The breakdown, or fission, or uranium atoms supplies about 2 percent of the world's energy requirements. Fission releases tremendous amount of heat, which can be used to make steam lo drive electric generators. Early supporters of nuclear of nuclear power believed that it would provide plenty of energy at low Cost. Bat many problems have developed. The cost of building nuclear power plants has soared. There is great public concern about the possibility of a spread of radiation following an accident in a nuclear plant. As yet there is also no sure, safe way to dispose of the burned out fuel, which is radioactive. And the supply of uranium on the earth, like the supply of fossil fuels, is limited.
