Small Nuclear War Could Reverse Global Warming for Years


news.nationalgeograp hic.com

To see what climate effects such a regional nuclear conflict might have, scientists from NASA and other institutions modeled a war involving a hundred Hiroshima-level bombs, each packing the equivalent of 15,000 tons of TNT—just 0.03 percent of the world's current nuclear arsenal.

The researchers predicted the resulting fires would kick up roughly five million metric tons of black carbon into the upper part of the troposphere, the lowest layer of the Earth's atmosphere.

At the extreme, the tropics, Europe, Asia, and Alaska would cool by 5.4 to 7.2 degrees F (3 to 4 degrees C), according to the models. Parts of the Arctic and Antarctic would actually warm a bit, due to shifted wind and ocean-circulation patterns, the researchers said.

After ten years, average global temperatures would still be 0.9 degree F (0.5 degree C) lower than before the nuclear war, the models predict.

We quite seem to be headed that direction with the world apparently moving closer to the brink of conflicts day-by-day. While the scientific discoveries are happening at a fast pace and may promise a better future, the current state of the world indicates the reality that we may never see that future.

a regional nuclear conflict.




Is it just me or does anyone else think that there could not be just a "small" or "regional" nuclear war/conflict?

Whats the point of this simulation ,its not as if they are trying to justify having a nuclear war,are they?
I prefer this
'Global warming could reverse small nuclear war for years'. Now lets see Nasa simulate that

At one time there were considering nuking a hurricane lol hello this was suppose to be from the top brass.
don't like it lets nuke it!

I wonder if this could be worked into a "kill two birds with one stone" scenario.

Small nuke, cleans air AND wipes out proverbial fill in the blank bad guys.

/sarcasm.

Sorry didn't see that. This is the second time this has happened to me today.

I thought we were heading for an ice age. Can they make up their bleeping minds? Or at least admit their models of the climate is far from complete?

Cool, I am preparing a list of 100 targets now!

I don't want to share it, because you might live in one of those places, and you won't end up starring my post then!

By the way I like warm weather, why would we want to reverse that?

Not that global warming is real, but hopefully none of the Powers that Be read the National Geographic!

I though carbon was the cause of global warming..
That's why our aussie government is starting a carbon tax in 2012..

Now they say it will stop global warming??

I wish they'd make up their frikin minds..!!!

North Africa and the Gulf region would make a great place to pop off a nuke....
We have drill bits that can drill through glass.

A nuclear winter sounds horrible, hopefully it doesn't happen. I hope those green junkies don't go red.

fooled you guys huh.. . its now"climate change" and ice cores show us we should be entering a cooling cycle( ice age) that carbon crap was a ruse to raise money for the "world govt".You shoulda' held out a bit longer...
