  •  It would be very interesting to see a simulation (2+ / 0-)

    of a significant nuclear exchange in the presence of 400 - 450 ppm CO2.  I wouldn't be surprised to find that the CO2 has a noticeable impact on the outcome.

    •  I've actually thought about that one! (1+ / 0-)

      ....there are a lot of variables in the Nuclear Winter scenario (target selection, air burst vs groundburst, avg yield of weapons used, the amount of weapons used, time of year, weather patterns)

      I'm not convinced that all you need is to detonate 'X' number of bombs et voila!.....nuclear winter!

      I'm also not convinced that the CinC of any nuclear power (let alone Pakistan/India) will operate as well as predicted.

      In other words:  the command chain will break down long before any major power is able to completely execute it's war plan.

      Of course, It's not worth testing out  ;)
