Countdown to extinction: Nuclear war and the end of humanity

0:00
28:23

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Brian Toon, professor of atmospheric and oceanic sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder. He discusses the civilisation-ending impact nuclear war would have, with 50-150 million people being killed in a hypothetical war between India and Pakistan. He also discusses the harsh impacts of nuclear winter and why it is a credible extinction-level threat, the close-call accidents and mistakes that have almost caused nuclear wars to begin, the threat of a large-exchange nuclear war involving the US, the case for disarmament, and much more.
