How to use "White-hot" in context?

When most people think of heat- TRANSFERRED energy, they probably think about the sun burning their skin. Pretty intense, right? And for good reason- intense heat is a great way to damage tissue. However, there are other sources of energy that can cause just as much damage- and sometimes even more.

One example is white-hot energy. Imagine holding something so hot that it was literally aflame, like when you stick your hand in a cooking oven. That's pretty much what happens when you get too close to a nuclear weapon. The intense heat melts the metal and destroys DNA.
