Study shows firestorms would block out the Sun and trigger a 'Little Ice Age' – resulting in crop failure and ocean famine
The Plain Truth Staff: (compiled from Daily Mail)
As America's president continues to provoke Russia over the Ukraine conflict, the moronic president of The United States is risking all our lives and the lives of billions of people around the world with nuclear annihilation. Russia has issued several doomsday threats to the West amid heightened tensions over their war with Ukraine.
Just last month the Kremlin warned that Europe would disappear in a nuclear apocalypse – a verbal attack in response to Western allies promising more weaponry to Ukraine.
Now, new research suggests that if there ever were to be a nuclear war between Russia and the US, it would likely trigger a 'Little Ice Age' lasting thousands of years.
Scientists "in the know" warn that "firestorms would release soot and smoke into the upper atmosphere that would block out the Sun and result in crop failure around the world."
In the first month following detonation, average global temperatures would plunge by about 13 degrees Fahrenheit. The analysis shows ocean temperatures would drop quickly (pictured) and not return to their pre-war state, even after the smoke from nuclear firestorms clears
In the first month following detonation, average global temperatures would plunge by about 13 degrees Fahrenheit.
That is more than during the most recent Ice Age, which lasted more than 100,000 years – reducing global temperatures by about 10 degrees Fahrenheit and killing off the woolly mammoth before it ended thousands of years ago.
The study is based on multiple regional and large-scale computer simulations.
Lead author Dr. Cheryl Harrison of Louisiana State University said: 'It doesn't matter who is bombing whom, it can be India and Pakistan or NATO and Russia. Once the smoke is released into the upper atmosphere, it spreads globally and affects everyone.'
However, Russia's invasion of Ukraine has brought the threat of nuclear war to the fore, and this study is the first to provide a stark picture of the environmental impact if Putin were to reach for the nuclear button.
Nine nations, including the UK, currently control more than 13,000 nuclear weapons, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
The analysis shows ocean temperatures would drop quickly and not return to their pre-war state, even after the smoke clears.
As the planet got colder, sea ice would expand by more than six million square miles and up to six feet deep, which would in turn block major ports including Beijing, Copenhagen, and St Petersburg.
It would then spread into normally temperate coastal regions and prevent shipping across the Northern Hemisphere. Food and supplies would get into some cities such as Shanghai however, ships are not prepared to face sea ice and it would become difficult.
The sudden drop in light and sea temperatures, especially from the Arctic to the North Atlantic and North Pacific, would kill algae — the bedrock of the marine food web.
Dr Harrison said: 'The current war in Ukraine with Russia and how it has affected gas prices, really shows us how fragile our global economy and our supply chains are to what may seem like regional conflicts and perturbations.'
It is not just the threat of nuclear war that could have such effects on Earth.
Volcanic eruptions also produce clouds of particles in the upper atmosphere and throughout history they have had similar negative impacts on the planet and civilization.
Dr Harrison said: 'We can avoid nuclear war, but volcanic eruptions are definitely going to happen again. There is nothing we can do about it so it is important when we are talking about resilience and how to design our society, that we consider what we need to do to prepare for unavoidable climate shocks. We can and must however, do everything we can to avoid nuclear war. The effects are too likely to be globally catastrophic.'
Oceans take longer to recover than land. In the worst US-Russia scenario it is likely to take decades at the surface and hundreds of years at depth.
Changes to Arctic Sea ice will likely last thousands of years and effectively be a 'Nuclear Little Ice Age,' said Dr Harrison. “Marine ecosystems would be devastated both initially and in the new ocean state, resulting in long-term global impacts to fisheries and other services”, she added.
The study has been published in the journal AGU Advances.
Jesus not only predicted catastrophic end time wars, but He also had John record in Revelation the word, ‘wormwood’. The Russian word for wormwood is Chernobyl! Chernobyl is a Ukrainian name for mug wort which is a species of artemisia known as 'common wormwood'. But as serious as that tragedy was, it did not even come close to poisoning a third of the waters of the Earth.

Let's read what Christ showed John:
Revelation 8:10 (Context)
7The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. 8And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. 10And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. 12And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. 13And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
Isn't it obvious that what is portrayed in the verse above is mass destruction on a world ending scale? Nuclear war is one of several earth shattering events that will bring about the end of this age, and yes, crazy as you may think it sounds, will bring about the return of Christ to save humanity from morons like Biden and company!
