I was under the impression a nuclear war would result in a nuclear winter.
Am I wrong in my math?
Nuclear winter is more a function of the gigatons of dust which would be hurled into the atmosphere blocking out the sun.

Our nature is to learn from mistakes. We made a HUGE one. a few of them, so let's learn to better the future instead of dwelling on how bad
everything seems to be.
Here's the thing, I don't think many of the people on this forum would have made the mistakes JapGov and Tepco have if they were in charge
originally when the plants were designed and built to withstand a much less magnitude earthquake than there were historical records of.
The mistakes of Fukushima go back before they ever broke ground on the site.
What sort of lessons should we, the people, learn?
That we can't trust our leaders to keep our best interests (health, freedom, personal prosperity) a higher priority than those or corporate interests
(profit, no matter the expense)?
What lessons, would you have our leaders learn?
Now, what probability do you assign to that actually happening?
