But other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?

I am not making up this headline…

On Top of Everything Else, Nuclear War Would Be a Climate Problem

It’s The Atlantic, so picture a not-especially-bright person trying to educate you at great length and in condescending tones about something you already know. The text of the article distills down to ‘A-bombs are bad.’ Read it if you wish, I just thought the title was funny.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    That article is being shredded all over the internet. The vastness of its stupidity cannot be appreciated by normal human beings.

    So someone like Kamala Harris then?

    I’d like to play Devil’s Advocate, here…

    Us older folks are all up to date and knowledged up on “Nuclear Winter” and all of the things that entails. It was drilled into our thick skulls for most of our lives, and so we’re well-damned-aware of the climate-related peril that nuclear war would entail.

    But…

    Pretty much anyone younger than me (I’m 42) would have possibly gotten through their entire education without it really being mentioned much, because since about 1991, the bitter reality of nuclear war seemed so… distant. While it would have been a daily talking point for us GenX and Boomers, Millenials and Gen Z may very well be entirely ignorant of the Nuclear Winter phenomenon, and anyone reading this article, instead of just focusing on the jaw-jacking stupidity of the title, would realize pretty quickly that that’s really all the article is about – it’s a quick primer on the well-known, well-established climate risks of nuclear war that we’ve always just referred to as the Nuclear WInter.
