There's a LOT of criticism though, and many reports that refute Sagan's claims, even with the armament of the times.
These days, we're looking at a MUCH more limited exchange, lessened even more if our missile defense system even halfway works. There are a LOT less
nukes pointed at us, and their reliability does nothing but degrade for the most part, with very few getting retrofit upgrades. With the limited
exchange, the predicted nuclear winter is greatly lessened as well.
Isolated terror attacks or plant meltdowns due to electrical grid failure are a LOT more likely scenario, but the point of the thread is that it
isn't game over like so many think it is.
