Would nuclear war really be as bad as it's portrayed in movies and video games?
I've become more concerned about this recently, considering Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un's pissing contest.
Don't get me wrong, I understand that it would be an immeasurable tragedy and hundreds of millions of people would die.
But media portrays post-nuclear worlds as desolate and nearly uninhabitable.
I don't know much about anything, but if this website http://nuclearsecrecy.com/nukemap/
is even remotely accurate, it doesn't seem apocalyptic. Even with hundreds of those flying around. And I was using the 100mt bomb, optimised for nuclear fallout. Pic semi-related is Nagasaki, which I interpret as evidence that while Fat Man might have been a cherry bomb compared to modern nukes, you can recover from total annihilation and radiation.
