Grim New Model Updates 2007 Model Run: Nuke War Still Bad News

Nuclear Winter Would Threaten Nearly Everyone on Earth,
Rutgers University, August 28, 2019.


Modern Modeling
"...modern climate model to simulate the climatic effects of an all-out nuclear war between the United States and Russia."

End of Summer
"If the United States and Russia waged an all-out nuclear war, much of the land in the Northern Hemisphere would be below freezing in the summertime, with the growing season slashed by nearly 90 percent in some areas..."

"Such a war could send 150 million tons of black smoke from fires in cities and industrial areas into the lower and upper atmosphere, where it could linger for months to years and block sunlight."

New Model
"The scientists used a new climate model from the National Center for Atmospheric Research with higher resolution and improved simulations compared with a NASA model used by a Robock-led team 12 years ago."

Cold Times
“There really would be a nuclear winter with catastrophic consequences.”

"In both the new and old models, a nuclear winter occurs as soot (black carbon) in the upper atmosphere blocks sunlight and causes global average surface temperatures to plummet by more than 15 degrees Fahrenheit."

Widespread Death
"....death by famine would threaten nearly all of the Earth's 7.7 billion people..."




Princeton's, "Plan A," Nuke Destruction Video Report & Coalition of Physicists

"Video...of a simulation developed to depict nuclear war between the United States and Russia using realistic nuclear force postures, targets and fatality estimates. It is estimated that there would be more than 90 million people dead and injured within the first few hours of the conflict."


"Plan A,"
Princton University, September 9, 2019.

"A group of Princeton University physicists has been awarded a two-year grant by the American Physical Society (APS) Innovation Fund to educate and re-engage the U.S. physics community on the globally important issue of the risk posed by nuclear weapons and the pressing need to reduce this threat."



The Corporate Press

Plan A Video

US-Russia nuclear war would kill 34 million people within hours and is increasingly likely, Princeton study concludes,
YAHOO, September 17, 2019.


"More than 90 million people would be killed or injured in a nuclear war between the US and Russia..."

"...a study at Princeton‘s Science and Global Security programme (SGS), suggests 34 million people would be killed and 57 million injured in the first hours of an all-out nuclear conflagration – not counting those left ill by fallout and other long-term problems."

"Worldwide destruction would include the nuclear incineration of Europe, which the Princeton scientists claimed could be brought about by the escalation of a conventional war between Russia and Nato."

"Later, Washington and Moscow would both target population centres, with up to 10 missiles per city from their remaining submarine arsenals."

"...the video is “based on real force postures, targets and fatality estimates”. "





More Players
Not only would the outcome of a superpower exchange of nuclear weapons be catastrophic, but the potential participants in an unlimited exchange of Nukes has risen, along with increasing the odds of such an exchange.

Bigger Game
What about a full Nuke exchange between Pakistan and India? Or N Korea & the US, then China & the US? The potential fault lines for serious nuclear conflicts are increasing as global fertility and resources continue to decline in the face of massively increasing populations. Not a pretty picture... Let's look at China & India...

SE Asian Chaos
These rising nuclear powers, both with massive populations, are competing for diminishing Himalayan water resources bringing the specter of nuclear conflict between China and India over the vital issue of who controls the Himalaya's diminishing runoff.
Besides China vs. India a conventional conflict between everyone else downstream of China's possession of the major Himalayan river's headwaters, which run through all their countries, is setting up Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Burma, as well as India, for serious conflicts with China over withholding diminishing Himalayan waters before it even flows into their countries.


Two Nuke Reports

Short & Long Consequences
The first report, at the top of this page calls for, "nearly all of the Earth's 7.7 billion people," to eventually die of starvation after a major exchange of nukes between the US & Russia.

90 Million at First
The Rest Later...
This new piece of research, the UPDATE, immediately above, anticipates such an exchange will start off with ninety million direct casulaties from the exchange itself, not including secondary deaths caused by infrastructural and environmental damages. Those damages will begin taking out the remaining population as soon as the last nukes are launched and fall, as the first piece of research above indicates.


Emergency Nuclear Procedures, FEMA.
Kiss Your Ass Goodby.
