As if Gorebull Warming wasn’t ludicrous enough, now comes National Geographic with their article Small Nuclear War Could Reverse Global Warming for Years
“To see what climate effects such a regional nuclear conflict might have, scientists from NASA and other institutions modeled a war involving a hundred Hiroshima-level bombs, each packing the equivalent of 15,000 tons of TNT—just 0.03 percent of the world’s current nuclear arsenal.”
“The researchers predicted the resulting fires would kick up roughly five million metric tons of black carbon into the upper part of the troposphere, the lowest layer of the Earth’s atmosphere.”
“In NASA climate models, this carbon then absorbed solar heat and, like a hot-air balloon, quickly lofted even higher, where the soot would take much longer to clear from the sky.”
“Earth is currently in a long-term warming trend (I bet this is news to many real climate scientists). After a regional nuclear war, though, average global temperatures would drop by 2.25 degrees F (1.25 degrees C) for two to three years afterward, the models suggest.”
Okay all you anti-war leftists, do your part. March in support of nuclear war, to “save the earth.” Who would have ever thought bought and paid for anti-war protesters were actually harming the earth by preventing nuclear war?
I wonder if this research has been peer reviewed?
