Should the Unthinkable Happen...

Panama with all its shortcomings just might be the place you will want to be! That is all.

An interesting read:

If a nuclear war broke out between the US and Russia, over 5 billion people would die, according to a new global study led by Rutgers climate scientists that predicts post-conflict crop production.

Global warming to global cooling

It is believed that nuclear war could lead to what is being called a 'nuclear winter.' This is when the detonation of nuclear weapons causes firestorms, the soot from which would block out the sun and result in a global climatic cooling effect.

This would lead to crop decline and a 'catastrophic disruption of global food markets.' As a result, over 75% of the planet would be starving within two years, as reported by Rutgers.

Alan Robock, a Distinguished Professor of Climate Science in the Department of Environmental Sciences at Rutgers-New Brunswick and co-author of the study, said:

The data tell us one thing: We must prevent a nuclear war from ever happening.

He continued:

If nuclear weapons exist, they can be used, and the world has come close to nuclear war several times. Banning nuclear weapons is the only long-term solution. The five-year-old UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons has been ratified by 66 nations, but none of the nine nuclear states. Our work makes clear that it is time
