It may sound silly to believe that a nuclear war between the United States and Russia is anything but the Apocalypse, but for scientists studying the climate and atmosphere, the changes that such a conflict could bring about on our planet are Dignified Theme
Now, a recent article published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres confirms decades-old estimates, confirming that the nuclear winter would indeed follow if the US and Russia dropped nuclear weapons. The study still does not explain the nuclear war for the end of humanity, but given the results of the study, it seems that the writing hangs on the wall.
For their study, Rutgers University's research team the National Center for Atmospheric Research and the University of Colorado used an updated climate model to show how a nuclear dispute between the US and Russia would affect the global climate. Number of bombs that would send both countries, and the probable destinations on both continents ̵
The hypothetical conflict was simulated as a "worst-case scenario", ie the estimates were based on the fact that both countries discard all their nuclear weapons reserves at the other. However, the study also assumes that all dropped bombs landed either in the US or in Russia and no other country of one of the two rival nations came to the rescue. In an actual nuclear war, such things seem unlikely, which means that the end result is likely to be even grimmer.
It is worth noting that previous studies have suggested that nuclear war between the US and Russia would actually mean the extinction of mankind and many other species, and there is really no reason to believe that this is not the case ,
