The Inevitability of Nuclear War and Subsequent Nuclear Winter

“So Far We Have Survived Nuclear Armageddon By Luck” Paul Craig Roberts

The long lucky streak can’t go on forever. President Reagan understood this and focused on ending the Cold War. This achievement has been overturned by the evil neocons operating through the last three US presidents.  click here for additional P.C.R. sourced article Ticking Closer to Nuclear Midnight.

 “In a nuclear war, immense nuclear firestorms in burning cities would create millions of tons of thick, black, radioactive smoke. This smoke would rise above cloud level and quickly surround and engulf the entire Earth. The smoke would form a stratospheric smoke layer that would block sunlight from reaching the surface of Earth for a period of about ten years.  Heated smoke in the stratosphere would cause massive destruction of the protective ozone layer. Huge amounts of harmful Ultraviolet light would penetrate the smoke and reach the surface of the Earth.Warming sunlight would be blocked by the smoke layer and cause the Earth to rapidly cool. In a matter of days, Ice Age weather conditions would descend upon all peoples and nations.”

I believe that this will be how they slow down our runaway climate change catastrophe.  The concept of a nuclear orchestrated global dimming and hence cooling is laid out below:  Nuclear War Threatens Human Existence.

    We have psychopaths in the US who seem to have decided that they are going to war with Russia.
    To date we have seen Putin and Lavrov manage to avoid the confrontation.
    I and John Pilger believe that the war has already begun, the stand off in Syria a case in point.
    These are the good old days, brace for imminent impact.

      I have thought so myself for some time now; ever since Paul Beckwith suggested it in a video on YouTube some months back. It appears that Frost’s Fire and Ice was more prescient than we might have imagined.

    07/10/16: THE NEW IMMORAL AGE: HOW TECHNOLOGY OFFERS NEW WAYS OF KILLING PEOPLE AND OF DESTROYING THE WORLD….”IT TURNS OUT…THAT I’M REALLY GOOD AT KILLING PEOPLE.”…. President Barack Obama (1961- ), (as reported in Reed Peeples, ‘A President and his Drones’, June 29, 2016) In February 2012, Congress passed the resolution to allow 30,000 drones to be eyes in our skies.
    “People often ask me, in terms of my argument about “ten steps” that mark the descent to a police state or closed society, at what stage we are. I am sorry to say that with the importation of what will be tens of thousands of drones, by both US military and by commercial interests, into US airspace, with a specific mandate to engage in surveillance and with the capacity for weaponization – which is due to begin in earnest at the start of the new year – it means that the police state is now officially here.” Naomi Wolf 2012…https://www.theguardian.com/…/21/coming-drone-attack-america
    07/08/16: Dallas Police used a robotic device, perhaps a drone, with an attached explosive to kill a suspect who had been shooting from the second storey floor of a public garage and refused to give up; “the subject is deceased as a result of detonating a bomb.”
    “We hold that what one man cannot morally do, a million men cannot morally do, and government, representing many millions of men, cannot do.” —”Governments are only machines, created by the individuals of a nation for their own convenience; they are only delegated bodies, delegated by the individuals, and therefore they cannot possibly have larger moral rights of using force, or, indeed, larger moral rights of any kind, than the individuals who delegated them.”—”We may reasonably believe that an individual, as a self-owner, is morally justified in defending the rights he possesses in himself and in his own property—by force, if necessary, against force (and fraud), but he cannot be justified in using force for any other purpose whatsoever.” Auberon Herbert (1838-1906), British writer
    “Nothing that is morally wrong can be politically right”. Hannah More (1745-1833) English writer and philanthropist
    “A belligerent state permits itself every such misdeed, every such act of violence, as would disgrace the individual”. Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), Austrian psychiatrist and philosopher
    We not only live in the computer and digital age, we also live in a profoundly immoral age, in which the use of violence against people has become easily justifiable, nearly routinely, either for religious, military or security reasons. The exalted words regarding morality from the past no longer have a place in our society. It is estimated that political decisions, mostly made by psychopaths in various governments, resulted in the death of some 262 million people—a democide or political mass murder, according to scholarly works by political scientist Rudolph J. Rummel.
    Human morality and empathy is not increasing; it is declining fast and with nuclear weapons in the hands of potential psychopaths, the next big step toward oblivion is a reality. Recent articles have suggested that, Tylenol an acetaminophen, may actually be a factor in the loss of empathy. It is widely accepted under basic moral rules that an individual may only use deadly force in self-defense, when his own life or the lives of his family are threatened. Therefore, the delegated morality to a state by its citizens to use deadly force cannot extend beyond the requirements of self-defense against actual or imminent attack, of the maintenance of order, and of the implementation of justice. Any unprovoked act of deadly aggression, resulting in the untimely and extrajudicial death of people, by a head of state, a government or its officials against other people becomes automatically immoral. The “preemptive strike” based upon known lies that led the US and the UK to invade and occupy Iraq was both illegal under our badly shredded Constitution and immoral. Britain’s Tony Blair arrogantly threw “the rule of law” out the window when advising his cohort, George W. Bush to “act first and explain later”. Our current governing structure no longer has the intended checks and balances, the Executive Branch has usurped the powers. Additionally, the Legislative Branch has been corrupted by greed and the passing of bills written by “special interests” and addendums that pass without the knowledge of the people who elected them to protect their rights.
    The most recent instance of a public official known to have assigned to himself the task of targeting some people, even American citizens, to be assassinated with unmanned drones or other means, without charge and outside of judicial procedures, and without geographic limits, is under President Barack Obama. Mr. Obama seems to be the first American president to have institutionalized what is called the “Terror Tuesday” meetings, during which the American president, with the help of the head of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), decides about the assassination or the capture of individuals deemed to be enemies of the United States around the world.
    It is very disturbing to empower a government, any government, with the power to execute people without trial or due process. This is what happened in Dallas when police executed a suspect because he may have been taking too long to give up. The justification being that by using a robotic to deliver an explosive instead of the police physically doing their job was safer. This may be a sign of our times, that as killing technology has advanced, and as power has become less constrained, humanitarian morality has badly declined. The technology of the atom bomb created by Dr. Oppenheimer has advanced so that it would only take one psychopathic madman in power to destroy humanity.

    Such an interesting hypothesis and really great to read your take on things like the Dallas police robot. This election year has been very illuminating and has divided the people around me like no election I’ve ever seen. I’ve lost many friends, or I should say people who I believed had the same belief structure as me, and it is therefore an even bigger relief to come across someone like you who actually does have the same ideas. I look forward to all your posts!

    A piece from Kevin Hester, who I’ve quoted before. Lost in the craziness of our stupid political season where we’ve selected the two worst representatives of our political system to participate in a ‘democratic’ deathmatch, we face a near-inevitable war with the Russians, whose nuclear arsenal is as world-ending as our own.

    This is why I believe that the end of the human movie will be doused in ionising radiation as the psychopaths at the helm of our sinking ship will reach for the nuclear winter option to slow down runaway abrupt climate change.

      Without sunlight, all agriculture will fail very rapidly. Its called nuclear winter because it creates a continuous winter climate across the earth. It is much worse then even a few degrees of warming.

    NUCLEAR WINTER IN BRIEF

    “The profound cold and darkness following nuclear war became known as nuclear winter and was first predicted in 1983 by a group of NASA scientists led by Carl Sagan. During the mid-1980s, a large body of research was done by such groups as the Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment (SCOPE), the World Meteorological Organization, and the U.S. National Research Council of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences; their work essentially supported the initial findings of the 1983 studies.”

    “The idea of nuclear winter, published and supported by prominent scientists, generated extensive public alarm and put political pressure on the United States and Soviet Union to reverse a runaway nuclear arms race, which, by 1986, had created a global nuclear arsenal of more than 65,000 nuclear weapons. ”

    “For more than three decades, the United States political and media establishment has conducted a coordinated campaign to whitewash the dangers of nuclear war. Using discredited science from the 1980s, US officials have adopted the policy that a nuclear first-strike against Russia could be “successful” and that the environmental dangers posed by multiple atomic or thermonuclear detonations—so-called nuclear winter—have been “disproven.”
    Such attitudes toward the use of nuclear weapons take on a new and ominous light when one considers the neo-McCarthyite rhetoric being used by congressional Republicans and top Democratic officials against Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as provocations like the deployment of 4,000 US troops and accompanying tanks, artillery and armored vehicles in Poland along Russia’s border. As significant sections of the United States government are preparing for war with nuclear-armed Russia, they simultaneously reject 34 years of peer-reviewed scientific research showing that a nuclear exchange threatens humanity’s extinction.”
