Should we turn on the LHC?

Points For[edit]

Large Hadron Collider Protection Means No Risk[edit]

The Large Hadron Collider has been made safe due to the numerous protection measures, such as the Quench Protection Systems, which assures any excess energy is discharged through magnetic coils. The Fast Magnet Current Charge Monitor detects when current levels in the Large Hadron Collider change and thus are able to control them. Finally, the active hardware diagnostics keeps the Large Hadron Collider running smoothly, making the risk levels go down. [1].

Correcting the Black Hole Theory[edit]

Due to black holes being unstable, they are deemed to be safe [2].

Review of the Safety of Large Hadron Collider Collisions[edit]

The LSAG report proves that the utilization of the Large Hadron Collider would be perfectly and 100% safe.[3]

group 5 point[edit]

Black holes generated through the LHC are insignificant in size and strength, resulting in them posing no serious threat to humanity. [4]

Points Against[edit]

LHC Produces Stable and Unstable Strangelets[edit]

Studies have shown that the LHC produces two different types of strangelets. the two different types of strangelets (Unstable and Stable) will be discussed as well as the precautionary risks it involves. [5]

group 2 point[edit]

group 3 point[edit]

group 4 point[edit]

The Large Hadron Collider has no real evidence that is is safe. The assumptions that scientists have made stating that the black holes are not dangerous has yet to be tested. Also Hawking radiation is used to promote the safety of this experiment even though it has never been tested [6].

The LHC Isn't Safe[edit]

The magnitude of the experimental Large Hadron Collider, and the largely unknown potential outcomes of the experiment could lead to disastrous consequences for humanity and the planet [7].
