Nuclear doomsday threat is ‘great and growing,’ scientists urgently warn
The satire of 1964’s “Dr. Strangelove” may become a terrifying global reality by 2024, a coalition of scientists desperately warn.
Over 100 medical journals are simultaneously sounding the alarm that the potential for world-ending nuclear conflict is “great and growing” amidst states like Russia dangerously stockpiling their doomsday payloads.
“A large-scale nuclear war between the US and Russia could kill 200 million people or more in the near term and potentially cause a global ‘nuclear winter’ that could kill 5–6 billion people, threatening the survival of humanity,” they wrote in unison.
