Climate change from nuclear war's smoke could threaten global food supplies, human health


Article must have been written by Ric Romero.

Well now I am just confused.

Is the author saying that nuclear war would have negative consequences?!?!?

I just marvel at the amazing things I learn on fark.

Apparently the author is really young.  I remember nuclear attack drills in grade school.

This is why I am heading straight to cannibalism after the nuclear war.  I plan on starting by eating Zoe Kravitz.

uhhh wtf is this shiat?
FTA healine:
Climate change from nuclear war's smoke could threaten global food supplies, human health

how about something more real, without the extra pointless wharbelgarhble:

Climate change from nuclear war's smoke could threatens global food supplies, human health

1: I'm pretty sure if they don't already understand that "food supplies" and human health are directly related, no point in telling them now.


2: also pretty sure if the nukes are going off, that right there signals the END of anything as "global supplies."

Global market place is closed, mushroom clouds out front should'a told ya.

Me too.

We also practiced walking to the basement fallout shelter. It was run just like a fire drill except instead of going outside you went in to the basement to die buried by the school wreckage.

Feels like we've all come around to thinking a nuclear war is inevitable.

This.

Anybody who still has food ain't shipping it to anyone else.
Anyone asked to transport food will take it themselves or get robbed.

One of our era's strange patterns is that everything the Rand Corporation ever said turns out to be confirmed by reseach (both scientific and archival research), over and over.

Well now I am REALLY on the fence about hoping for nuclear war.

We hid under our desks, which were apparently made of nuclear blast proof plywood.

I'm sure the increased cancer risk due to the destruction of the ozone layer will probably be negligible in the face of the nuclear fallout, but ok.

You know what, we never have, or it probably would have been used.
But now we've seemed to reach some point where we wish for annihilation rather than......that other thing we're doing that will kill us just as dead.
Denial is a lot more  than a river in Egypt.  It shapes who we are.
At least with the bomb, we'll have somebody definitive to blame.

That will probably depend on her assessment of my abilities.  I am reasonably confident though.

Do you remember when Republicans went ballistic on Carl Sagan for bringing out the concept of nuclear winter?

It's been a while but if I'm remembering correctly they basically accused him of undermining Americas will to have nuclear holocaust.

No worries!  Cold fission oughta fix this wide-ranging set of hot issues.

It's easier than actually fixing our problems.

There was absolutely no point of that where I grew up. We were about 30 miles from the missile silos.

It's fine, just have to make sure you pick the right perk when it becomes available.

I wonder how much they got paid to discover something known since the 50s.

I live in a first-strike city.   My plan for that day is to just go up on my roof and watch.   I won't feel a thing.  And even if I do, it won't be for long.

We too had nuclear bomb proof desks. That was a whole separate drill. I think the gist of it was if you saw a flash or heard the blast it was too late to head for the basement.

I still wonder what those desks were made of and why they didn't just make the whole school out of THAT stuff.
