go nuke yourself

a short history of the "cold war"..."... a haunting visualization of the 2053 atomic explosions that occurred on this planet, from the “Trinity” test at Los Alamos.."




'Civilized countries' - that now form what we dub the 'nuclear club' - conducted over 2,000 nuclear blasts on the Earth, and these entities - the executioners of her slow death - vigorously deny any irreversible, incurable damage.
If you're looking for fallout maps, you won't find any such map here or anywhere that will satisfy your whim or sophisticated inquiry. Why? Because the executioners, to their best of their satisfactions, don't want you to see them. What you can and will see - if you seek it - are bits and pieces of the destruction: a high reading of radioactivity in wheat or milk here, of air over there, a trajectory map here, and a rare truthful analysis there. Put them together and you have what would happen in a small-but-non-mutually-destructive nuclear war (that we erringly refer simply to as the Cold War): the radioactive fallout circling - for eons - around the Earth and within her biosphere as a consequence of our historic, 'peaceful' tit-for-tat nuclear testing exchange is no different than the fallout in the event of an actual nuclear exchange had 400 or so atomic and hydrogen bombs fell only in remote regions of land and sea on the globe. How would your life be different if you were taught in school a small nuclear war already took place? How would that change the way you see your life and your health? Or your country or the world?

  2. I just tried and it worked for me as well.

    A rather frightening thing, that we've already expended more nuclear weapons in testing than most likely would be used in a war. It begs the question, 'What where they thinking?', but the answer is that they probably just didn't (and don't) care.

  3. I found the dates interesting. The apocolyptic club continues.
