Sauce: http://motls.blogspot.com/2011/02/nasa- ... rs-of.htmlNASA GISS' computer modelers (Luke Oman et al.) were trying to solve the "global warming crisis" and they found a solution: a regional nuclear war, for example between India and Pakistan, would reduce floods and cool the Earth by 1.25 °C - some places by 3-4 °C. After a decade, the temperature would still be 0.9 °C lower than before the war.
The war hawks are just gonna love this and they'll also get the tree huggers off their backs. Remember, the planet will be fine; it's humankind who's f***ed.
JR8, what sayeth thou?
