Regional war could spark "unprecedented climate change," experts predict.
Even a regional nuclear war could spark "unprecedented" global cooling and reduce rainfall for years, according to U.S. government computer models.
Widespread famine and disease would likely follow, experts speculate.
Earth is currently in a long-term warming trend. 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.

Of course all these models that predict global warming or global cooling, etc., are based on millions of assumptions, and most likely many of those assumptions are wrong.
There’s got to be more to “scientific opinion” than simply “the opinion of a scientist.”
No nuclear limit: China
HIGH-RANKING Chinese officials have declared that there can be no limit to the expansion of Beijing’s nuclear arsenal, amid growing regional fears that it will eventually equal that of the United States, with profound consequences for the strategic balance in Asia.
Records of secret defence consultations between the US and China reveal that US diplomats have repeatedly failed to persuade the rising superpower to be more transparent about its nuclear forces and that Chinese officials privately admit that a desire for military advantage underpins continuing secrecy.
so, if all counties didn’t have all those nuclear tests the past, we would be averaging 100 degress ? <*sarcasm off>
Here we go again with the Gorebull Warming BS. I knew they couldn’t give it a rest.
I think what applies to these models, is:
“You can start with erroneous assumptions, then use impeccable logic, to arrive at the grand fallacy”
or more simply GIGO (garbage in, garbage out)
Global warming advocates are now insane and should be put in institutions of stupidity.
I have a new bumpersticker:
GIVE NUCLEAR WAR A CHANCE!
Cool I vote we hit Hollywood ...../ kidding
too, sweet deal.
Save The Planet. Nuke it!
I wouldn’t be surprised if a majority of libs believe global warming is a bigger threat than “nuclar” war.
I remember a day many years ago I was happy to read anything from National Geographic. Now a days all they have is a agenda.
So this is why the leftists love those tyrannical governments so much! It all boils down to their religion of globull warming!
Actually, this is a revival of the “Nuclear Winter” scare which predated the Global Warming scare which predated the Climate Change scare which predated the Global Climate Catastrophe scare. Looks like they are going back to Step 1 now.
more computer models, no doubt!!
computer modeling has provided a mountain of misleading or false informaion.
garbage in, garbage out
Some ideas are just too bad to die.
