I think nuclear winters possible BUT you would need ten of thousands of 500kt + detonations.
Possible back in the cold war but now would be very hard to acheive.

Its not really a situation i would care to wager upon myself!
Lets just say the Earth has a remarkable ability to heal itself and for all we know given the length of time humanity has been around compared to our recorded history the scenario in question could quite possibly have occurred before, Maybe even in India.edit on 10-12-2013 by andy06shake because: (no reason given)

Nuclear weapons are bad but my understanding is that nuclear winter has been disproven (that the dust would block the sun for months)...
In any case imagine the impact that of an irradiated Pakistan and Afghanistan the world production of heroin would be almost completely gone...

But thousands of test detonations don't hurt anything?? I don't buy this end of the world stuff with nukes especially after seeing the tests map a few months ago.
I don't get the problem?
We don't have to deal with those stupid ad's on TV about sending money to them (why send money when we can send contraception to cease the poverty?), we don't have to deal with them on public transport not wearing deodorant and all in all we get rid of (some) of the third wold inhabitants. Sounds harsh as hell, but why continue to let them breed if they can't even look after themselves and continue to ask for assistance from other countires?
I just don't get it. Stop having sex. Stop making Earth crappy for everyone else.....!
Ive yet to see an ad on TV asking for donations for China. Do you realize how much debt they carry.. of OURS??
According to U.S. data, China has $1.3 trillion in Treasurys, making the country the biggest foreign holder of U.S. debt.
Sorry not true at all why?
How many nuclear tests have happened since they haveinvented the bomb,, 2053..
We are still here.
I used to think this until someone showed me.
Why do you think 1 in 3 applies to Breast Cancer and Prostate cancer in the US?
Other cancers have skyrocketed in regards to population worldwide. It is the elephant in the room that no one wants to acknowledge.
Wearing pink and growing moustaches won't rid the world of damage done.
Ha! stop having sex and making the world crappy, thats awesome!
I feel the same way. Look at family sizes around the world, why is it that the worse off the standard of living the MORE children per family? We arnt a damned virus, smarten up planet!
