Could A Small Nuclear War Reverse Global Warming?

From HuffingtonPost

Nuclear war is a bad thing.

Right?

Scientists from NASA and a number of other institutions have recently been modeling the effects of a war involving a hundred Hiroshima-level bombs, or 0.03 percent of the world’s current nuclear arsenal, according to National Geographic. The research suggests five million metric tons of black carbon would be swept up into the lowest portion of the atmosphere.

The result, according to NASA climate models, could actually be global cooling.”

Lovely, all we need is a “small nuclear war” every two or three years and we can keep global warming at bay forever.

There would be no need to get off of fossil fuels, just burn oil and gas until they run out, then burn coal until there’s a layer of soot a fathom deep.

Another benefit I suppose, would be the job growth created by the need to bury corpses, my god, undertakin­g would be a major growth industry.

It’s warming to know that there are concerned people, smart people, doing all this contingenc­y planning, thinking creatively­, out side the bun and all.

Officials said that “The military will be in overall command of the limited nuclear wars but the devices will be deployed and detonated by drunken civilian contractor­s for purposes of deniabilit­y, the bar will be cash only because, you know, we have to get this deficit under control.”

How was this study paid for? A grant from the oil industry and the defense department­.
