The control and mastery of FIRE is critical to the advance of we humans from base primitive survival to 'civilisation' - and 'Phlogiston Theory' was a fleeting attempt (now discredited), to explain how fire works and might be created.

A commonly cited quote by Ralph Nader states that a pound of plutonium dust spread into the atmosphere would be enough to kill 8 billion people. This was disputed by Bernard Cohen, an opponent of the generally accepted linear no-threshold model of radiation toxicity. Cohen estimated that one pound of plutonium could kill no more than 2 million people by inhalation, so that the toxicity of plutonium is roughly equivalent with that of nerve gas.
