The study, conducted by researchers from Rutgers University, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and the University of Colorado, used an updated climate model to show how nuclear conflicts between the US and Russia could affect the global climate.
The model shows that nuclear winter will cause a sharp drop in temperature worldwide. In addition, the total global precipitation will be reduced by about 30% in the months following the nuclear conflict.
The hypothetical conflict is modeled as the “worst case”, which means that the result is based on both countries throwing all their nuclear weapons reserves to each other. However, the study also assumes that all the bombs that were thrown fell in the United States or Russia, and no other country came to help, but it is clear that such a situation seems unlikely in a real nuclear war, which means ultimately The result may be even more severe.
