Global Warming: The Armageddon Option II

Confirmation that the scientific speculation in the essay below is sound:

Even a limited nuclear exchange could trigger a climate catastrophe

"In the 1980s, scientists estimated that a war in which each superpower used half its nuclear arsenal would have destroyed the upper atmosphere's ozone layer and, by filling the skies with dust and smoke, decreased temperatures at ground level in some regions as much as 40°C for up to a decade. Scientists and antinuclear advocates dubbed this chilling result nuclear winter."
