3 Impacts & 3 Results of Nuclear War: When It Happens “Over There” It Happens Here Too July 18 2014

Pray for Peace in Every Hometown


For the first time ever, scientists have taken 2 models & combined them to show a global view of what a regional nuclear war could do if it involved 100 nuclear weapons (17000 Nukes exist now).

3 Impacts

After 20-50% of our ozone is blown away: 

  1. Drop in surface temperature
  2. Super heating of the stratosphere
  3. Blasting up of 500 Tg of black carbon into the air for 8.7 years (Tetra gram = 1 Golden Gate Bridge)

The result:

    1. Coldest temperatures in 1000 years.
    2. A global nuclear food crisis
    3. Increased exposure to nuclear radiation & fallout related cancers*
