Do You Want to Know What Could Happen to Our Planet if a Nuclear War Was to Start?
Have you seen that instructional video from the 1950s for 'Duck and cover,' the method that was recommended to US citizens during the Cold War? Every US citizen was told that this method of ducking and covering was the only way of protecting themselves in the case of an unexpected nuclear explosion.
These days, the possibility of World War III is very likely, and the number of nuclear weapons on our planet is simply frightening. But do you actually know what could happen to our world in the case of a nuclear war?
1. World Wars Have Destroyed Our Planet
There were two like that already in our history, and the results were awful. However, military analysts are saying that the chances of another world war are higher than ever.
2. Hiroshima and Nagasaki
3. New Weapons Are Being Developed Every Day
And to make matters worse, bigger and stronger nuclear weapons are being developed every day.
Today, nine countries own around 15 thousand nuclear bombs in total. Russia and the USA each keep 1,800 launch-ready missiles that can be fired within minutes in case something happens.
4. Unit of Measurement
After 70 years, the world's nuclear weapons have developed so much that the damage they would do would be much larger and more devastating than the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
