A nuclear war between Russia and NATO
We’ve previously mentioned the side effects of a smaller hypothetical conflict between India and Pakistan, two countries that have nuclear arsenals of similar size.
Imagine a massive conflict between Russia and NATO. The fight would be stronger and longer, and it would bring more disastrous consequences. It would take the Earth several years to recover. And not to mention, people who would survive would have to make it through each day to remember how it was before and to fight for the world to become a good place to live again.
The manufacturing of nuclear weapons might drop by almost 90% in the three to four years following a full-scale nuclear conflict between the US and Russia, which together are thought to control 90% of the world’s nuclear arsenal.
