Humans are smart enough to survive a nuclear bomb, provided they don’t die immediately from the explosion and the radiation. The question is not “Could you survive?”, the question becomes “Would you want to?”

@Vysair Even if infrastructure did not break down, society could not function. Radioactive dust and the nuclear winter would make it impossible to do natural agriculture, going outside for too long could result in radiation poisoning, and all water, except maybe that which falls out of the sky, would be irradiated. Rising sea levels, cities being left in ruin, power pretty much just disappearing etc. is just the icing on the cake.

The question is not “could humans survive?” Because that’s obviously a yes, the question is “could *you* survive?” And that is much less likely

personally, I believe nuclear weapons have been causing people to not want to go to war with each other, but it also has increased the death count if a major war were to happen. Edit: God damn the reply section is an active warzone
It's hard to tell exactly but I don't think that explanation really does it. It is a "correlation does not necessarily imply causation" scenario, because in the same period of time, telecommunications was on the rise, culminating in the internet. 100 years ago there weren't people having friendships or much cultural exchange across national boundaries but now that is frequent, and I think that is actually the cause of less war, it just happens to be at the same period of time that nuclear weapons were developed, namely the last half of the 20th century. There WAS still war after all, it's just no one used nukes because that was a line they weren't going to cross easily, while they were still quite willing to go to war. But it was always across national boundaries where there wasn't a lot of cultural influences. Like the US and Vietnam for instance? How much culture did we get from Vietnam? Not very much. Even now. When is the last time you watched a movie that was made in Vietnam? Read a book written by a Vietnamese person. Bought a car made in Vietnam. Met someone from Vietnam. You can find a few Vietnamese restaurants here and there, but even now it might as well be another planet. Japan on the other hand, has lots of cultural exchanges, NOW, Americans are big on anime. While such a thing didn't exist until after world war 2. Is the threat of nuclear war what is stopping the US from going back to war with Japan? I don't think so. This supports my hypothesis that it has more to do with the rise of Electronic communications than nuclear weapons, it's just that both things happened at the same time so you think it has to do with nuclear weapons.

This is so well put together, so thorough, and so timely. I applaud the time and effort you put into this, the results are magnificent. In addition, I must add that you're almost conducting a public service here. I am 48 years old, and for those of us that grew up with the Sword of Damocles perpetually hanging over our heads, this is but a sobering reminder of those beclouded days. The specter of nuclear holocaust has always been with us, lurking in the shadows, with an occasional scare or disaster to remind us how frail life is, now that we can fully eradicate our race. Beyond the Chernobyl and Fukushima events, we have had scarce few reminders of our precarious existence. It's a good thing that these younger generations that have known only sunny days know the shadow of fear as well; it is a deterrent in your own actions, and the most powerful reminder of mortality.

As a note on Nuclear Winter, it is currently a matter of scientific debate as to whether the nuclear bombing of cities, munitions depots, and the potential spread of fires to the countryside would actually result in the release of huge quantities of ash. The original Nuclear Winter hypothesis was based on the results of the firebombing of Japanese cities during World War Two, which due to certain circumstances such as the proliferation of wooden housing and the deliberate use of incendiary weapons resulted in a much larger amount of ash. Many scientists now believe that these circumstances would not be present in the nuclear bombing of modern cities across North America and Eurasia, and thus a much more manageable quantity of ash would be released into the atmosphere, thus significantly reducing the death toll of a hypothetical World War Three.

An interesting way of looking at the target map is, nukes are seen by many governments as desirable to possess, a means of defending yourself and a sign of a powerful country, but the side effect is that possessing nukes also instantly turns all your cities into targets.

Yes, the prospect of nuclear war remains a serious global threat, and it is important to take steps to prevent it from happening. While the idea of building bunkers may seem extreme, it is understandable that some individuals or groups may feel the need to prepare for the worst-case scenario. However, it is important to note that bunkers may not necessarily guarantee survival in the event of a nuclear war, and the best way to protect ourselves is to work towards global nuclear disarmament and promote peaceful solutions to conflicts.
Dale Akins
Dale Akins 3 aylar önce
@Rich Young I can understand why you may feel that way, and everyone has the right to make their own choices about how to respond to the possibility of nuclear war. However, it is important to note that the best way to prevent a nuclear war is to work towards reducing the likelihood of it happening in the first place. This can involve advocating for diplomatic solutions to conflicts, supporting global efforts to reduce and eliminate nuclear weapons, and promoting peace and understanding between nations. It is also important to keep in mind that in the event of a nuclear war, the consequences would be catastrophic and far-reaching, affecting not only those who are directly impacted by the initial blasts but also potentially leading to widespread environmental damage and long-term health consequences. As such, it is essential to work towards a future where we can live in a world free from the threat of nuclear war.

Quality work, Mr. Halloran. Eye-opening & deserving of instant respect. 👏 The only thing I believe was missed is the changing attitudes towards bombing cities, particularly in the West. That is NOT to say that it won't happen - it's happening as I write this, as most know - but in general, warfare today is usually more geared towards targeted strikes, & I see the possibility of low-yield tactical nukes being employed to wipe out large bases, fleets, or troop formations, as being significantly higher than the risk of high-yield strategic nukes being employed to destroy entire cities. The risk of nuked cities is BY NO MEANS ZERO, but I believe it is significantly lower today than it was in the 20th century, while the possibility of using tactical nukes remains much higher. By all means, please correct me if I'm wrong! It does appear that you've done your research well!!

Be best part is that there are several "one men", one who was in a missile detection center, another was in a submarine, another may have been a border guard, a dictator, a president, a general who was having a good day and could think clearly, a guy who spotted a malfunction in the detection systems, a lot of people could be considered a sigle man or woman who saved all of humanity, all of those definitely are the saints of our society, wether we know it or not

@Furinick I've been thinking the same too. Whenever I lose hope in humanity, I just remind myself that there are saints out there still saving the world without me knowing

Yes Arkhipov definitely helped, but It took more than 1 guy to avoid war....JFK, RFK, Stevenson, Scali, and even Khruschev, Mikoyan, Fomin also were factors. It was how the people above Arkhipov reacted that avoided, or would have caused war

I remember watching your videos on WW2 a few years ago and i was blown away to the quality of the content... In the last few years i had forgotten about it, but as soon as you started speaking, i immediatly remembered everything. Speak about the quality of your videos.

The part where he says, that today the risk is much lower than at the height of the cold war, is suddenly outdated. But i don't think the risk is that high to be honest. Even in a WW3 scenario, i believe that the mutual assured destruction, would still be in effect for both sides, to some degree at least.

You didn't have to hit us with the subtle piano paired with the sudden, limited, deep notes that shit hits the FEELS in the best way possible, and just makes this video that much more moving
My wife's father was 20 when he was at Hiroshima. He worked in the defense industry and was reassigned to Nagasaki. One of the few to survive both bombings. He died recently at age 86.

This really ignores the destruction of just-in-time Supply chains, the loss of fertilizer, and the loss of irrigation.

I think its unfortunate that a war brought on by the interests of the few will ultimately end with everyone else paying the price while they cozy up in whatever bunker they can afford.

It's very sad that this has become a real threat again. I hope this war ends soon and sort of "good" (as good as it can get). And that the big powers learn to establish a better and more stable peace model for the world then.

When I was in high school in the 90's, I frequented my local library. One day while just browsing I found a voluminous non-fiction book about nuclear winter. If I recall correctly, I never checked it out at all. It might have been in the reference section (remember that?). Instead, I sat there all day reading it in the library, gripped with roughly equal parts terror and fascination. I went back day after day until I had read the whole book there in the library. It's one of those experiences that changes your perspective forever.

@Harrison B I believe it was Carl Sagan and a couple of other scientist that first proposed the nuclear winter theory. It has become a debated theory now.

A single nuke isn’t the scary thing. It’s that if one goes off, all of them will, and several nukes are really scary

Denver and the rest of the front range would have been good targets. There are several air force bases (Buckley, the academy, Cheyenne mountain, peterson, and Schriever AFBs), one army base (fort carson), norad, us northern command (the hq for any military operations in north america), alternate command center, colorado national guard, and an army training center

Number of warheads is annoyingly huge. A relativelly small portion will make living on the planet like the game "Stalker : Shadow of chernobil" with that difference that 99% of the people have no idea if is possible to survive enough or not. This can be a reset or just a drop over a splash in the ocean of options
