What a Even a Small Scale Nuclear War Would Do to Planet Earth

What a Even a Small Scale Nuclear War Would Do to Planet Earth 1

The mainstream media is cheering on the psychopaths in government as they deliberately stoke conflict with Russia and press further forward with the Neocon agenda of total global war. If the media were doing its job, however, they’d be asking questions and pursuing truth in governmental matters in order to contribute to the good of society and the betterment of the world.

At issue in this looming conflict is the horrifying specter of nuclear war, and the threat of such an unwinnable conflict is higher today than at any point during the cold war. It seems that we’ve become desensitized to what a nuclear war would mean and have lost interest in preserving peace and mutual security on our shared planet.

To make matters worse, the global proliferation of nuclear weapons means that lesser nations like India and Pakistan are dangerously close to nuclear conflict, and with the development of weapons ridiculously more power than the bombs used on Japan in WWII, even a small-scale nuclear war could wreak devastation on the entire planet.

Atmospheric scientist Brian Toon has been studying nuclear war for thirty-five years, and as he explains in the TED talk below, nuclear conflict with today’s high-powered weapons could easily mean the destruction of the entire planet.

In the startling presentation, Toon explains what we’re facing as belligerence between nuclear powers increases and the situation in the Middle East intensifies. As frightening as this information is, it serves as a necessary wake up call for all those out there who are at present content with sleep-walking into such a dangerous future.

If we are to stop this before it happens, we need to be aware of what we are facing.
