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.
The left is hoping for it, to cover their tracks on the global warming big money scam.
Well, if we're going to have just a "small nuclear war" I have a good candidate for the designated target.
Is somebody recommending this? The world has gone mad.
I have a better idea... drop a nuke down Old Faithful and perhaps we can get Yellowstone to finally blow up. That should help.
If they’d just leave well enough alone we would be better off. This year hasn’t felt like we need to worry about global warming!
Given that global warming is farce and the earth has been cooling, launching a nuclear war to save the earth is ludicrous.
Experts - what would we do without them?
They state with certainty that a specific series of variable events will impact global temperatures for many years and they can do it to 1/100 of a degree!
Yet they can not accurately forecast if the next winter will be colder or warmer than the norm or it there will be more or less snowfall than the average.
They can’t even run their climate models on past years and get predictions that match the actual climate history.
These are the same groups of mainstream experts who, in the 1970’s, warned us of a coming ice age and predicted that by now we would have abandoned our northern cities to be crushed under the oncoming glaciers.
Back when we were first married (43 years ago), one of my aunts gave us a subscription to National Geographic. We thoroughly enjoyed it when it stayed with geography. When it drifted over into religious science (Gaia Worship and Global Warming), we canceled it.
What does “long-term warming trend” mean: as opposed to the second ice age?
Should be good for a century or so
Plus or minus a few unnecessary species /sarc
Since GW doesn’t exist in the first place, anything could claim to reverse it.
The more these loons are proven to be wackos and liars, the greater the level of insanity we see. One has to wonder what next week will bring.
So, what are we waiting for? To quote Michael Corleone, “Today I settled all of the family’s business.” And fixing global warming in the balance... Hoo-ah! Who would have guessed that Armageddon could be green?
Given this information, our required course is obvious. We must allow plenty of global warming in case some fool starts a nuclear war.
The white house or mtv studios? ;)
Yes, let’s have a nuclear war. We can say that “it’s for the
children.” What a heartwarming thought.
A small nuclear war would work well with this ice age.
Baloney. They detonated dozens of nuclear devices in the Pacific and in Nevada in the 50’s & 60’s. The climate absorbed all of that and stayed stable.
Al Gore’s group is no doubt pushing this idea.
“Not even wrong”
National Geographic is a wing of the WH. Are they floating this idea? They will try anything to get carbon ex. dollars which will totally imprison us.
there IS NO GLOBAL WARMING!!!!!!!!
it is a HOAX!!!!!
...according to U.S. government computer models.
In other words, according to models whose values for variables are preset according in order to give precisely the outcome desired.
You can get a climate model to dance a polka if you preset the right "assumptions" for variable values.
These progressive nut jobs are never happy until millions suffer and/or die.
so.......this is a recommendation?
This is probably the most foolish thing I’ve ever heard, basically, “Experts” are fools today, blinded by thier false “green” religion, even my 13 year old burst out laughing when I showed him the headline, anyone with any common sense knows this is utter nonsense.
Like 1000 burning oil wells in Kuwait did? Thats what Carl Sagan predicted,,,, lol
Listen Choi, unless you're in a position to tell me who these "experts" are, DON'T BOTHER ME!
Oh, you might let us know when National Geographic abandons questionable advocacy and returns to geography.
Well, I dunno...We have got to find a way to protect our Precious Bodily Fluids...
