The Cure For Global Warming: A "Small" Nuclear War?

U.S. government computer models have predicted that a regional nuclear war could reverse global warming for at least ten years, reports National Geographic. Scientists built a model taking into account bombs with Hiroshima-level impact, which would—after destruction—slowly set global cooling in motion.

The global warming fix would also create “widespread famine and disease,” “years without summer,” and—for a time—a “colder, hungrier planet.” But, after that, experts say the earth would cool by a couple degrees and precipitation would reduce for a few years.

Luke Oman, a physical scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center said, “The main message from our work would be that even a regional nuclear conflict would have global consequences.”

Despite their main message, we’re not really sure why experts are looking into this possibility at all. In the meantime, let’s hope for a better, less horrifying solution to global warming. Like kittens, perhaps.
