Hey all. I'm a longtime lurker, never before created a forum account though.
I am writing a short story for a class in University this semester, and I decided to write a Nuclear disaster plotline.
I can't say I am very educated on the topic, so I thought I'd come here to get some details and ideas!
Just a couple questions:
If a series of modern Nuclear bombs were erupted in the Middle East/Asia (either by us, or them), would that radiation pose any significant threat to
I'm looking for a reason for society to deconstruct completely, without a direct attack on American soil. (Thus, radiation moving inland)
Besides the obvious looting and rampant crime (Oh noes, the end of the world) would this bring any other issues to our infrastructure? Such as
electricity, satellite Telecommunications, radio towers, etc.
Any insight you guys can give me would be great! Thank you all.
