If your not at least 50 miles underground will you'll probably boil like a cabbage underground. Sadly the the loonies would be under
at least 200 miles below the top crust of the earth
Well, you have given yourself a very apt name, as you deviate from reality by some immense margin. The deepest man has ever gone is nearly 4000
metres, not miles, and that was with a drill leaving a hole that would not accommodate a single human being. The pressures at that depth are immense,
and so is the heat.
The crust of the earth is no more than 6 kilometres deep, so where you get 200 miles (321.8 kilometres) from I just cannot fathom! Are you incapable
of doing a single ounce of research?
For those who think their bug out bunkers would be safe haven then you better hope that your bunkers are not directly hit within 20
miles of a nuclear warheads epicentre.
Government nuclear bunkers are built to withstand near-miss nuke detonations, but will fare very badly with a direct hit from a ground burst...no one
Here in the UK, a single 20 megaton bomb air burst over London would knock out all electronics in the UK, and with thermal and pressure effects
experienced in Manchester, as the bomb's blast wave and heat would be channelled up either side of the Pennines following the topography, with there
being no mountainous region to shield the effects. The blast and burns would not be too serious in Manchester, but of course, the further south you go
towards London, the more serious the injuries.
London and surrounding provinces would receive a fair few nukes in various yield strengths, in both air burst and ground burst configurations, and
would be utterly annihilated. Just with the attack on London a third of the UK's population would be wiped off the face of the earth in almost an
However, the whole of UK will will receive anything up to 300 megatons of nuclear devastation, but the south will receive more than its fair share.
Yorkshire will certainly be hit with a considerable amount, and may in fact be attacked first to take out Fylingdales Early Warning Centre, and a few
of the big cities, York, Harrogate, Leeds and Sheffield, and nuclear reactors.
Manchester would be hit with up to 20 air burst and ground burst nukes varying in the 1 megaton to 5 megaton yield. In essence, the UK hasn't a
snowball's hope in hell of surviving.
Military installations and cities in America would most likely receive up to 2000 megatons, and around a 1000 megatons for the whole of Europe.
Russia's nuclear arsenal is not as accurate as the American's, but carry far greater payloads to compensate for this.
America would deal out similar megaton payloads on Russia and China, and probably North Korea. Japan would be annihilated similarly as with the UK.
Practically all big cities in America, Europe, and the UK would be completely destroyed. There is no counter supposition to this, there is no
rationale that could realistically present a soother picture or scenario. It really will be as bad as I conservatively state it. Survivors will be
those already in the process of dying a death filled with the sights and sounds and smells of self-suicided species.
