Nuclear Weapons are the Answer
All this time we thought that nuclear weapons were a bad thing. Scientists at an American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco have presented a study that says just a small nuclear attack would cause the earth to cool.
... the researchers say black soot from the fires would linger in the atmosphere, blocking the sun's rays and causing average global surface temperatures to drop about 2 degrees Fahrenheit in the first three years. Although the planet would see a gradual warming within a decade, it would still be colder than it was before the war, the scientists said.
This is great news! We don't need to worry over the global warming threat anymore. If the climate heats up all we need do is nuke some troubleshot in the world and kill two birds with one stone.
The possibilities are numerous. Many people worry that terrorist nations will attack the west or destabilize the region around them causing much human suffering. Others worry over their carbon footprint and want some way to offset the impact of their consumer life style. Here is an opportunity to address both problems. The UN could take payments to offset carbon emissions and use that money to launch periodic nuclear attacks on rouge nations to help keep the peace. The more carbon one uses the more peaceful the world becomes!
