Climate effects of nuclear war and implications for global food production

19-03-2013

Recent environmental research using previously unavailable climate modeling techniques indicates that even a limited regional nuclear war could cause global climate cooling that would cut food production for many years and put one billion people at risk of starvation worldwide.

This research also estimates that a large-scale nuclear war would create ice-age conditions likely to eliminate most of the human race.
