NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST

maxresdefault

Many of us have dreaded the thought of a nuclear holocaust. Most people believe it will come through nuclear warfare, but I feel it could come from another means. The film Olympus Has Fallen introduced a scenario in which a country’s nuclear weapons could detonate while inside their silos. I took this idea and expanded it to an even larger level. Imagine what could happen if the nuclear weapons of ALL countries detonated in their silos instead of just one country? When I consider this possibility, I think it could have extremely dire consequences to the planet. The resulting heat, radiation, and fallout would melt the polar ice caps instantly, resulting in rapidly rising sea levels. The explosions would shatter continents and create colossal tsunamis that would swallow up the surrounding islands and countries. The vaporized debris and fallout would block out the sky in a nuclear winter and super storms would ravage what remains of the heavens. Most of the planets biosphere would be gone and the surviving humans would be struggling to survive with what little resources remain. Essentially, this would be an extinction level event. I will toy with this idea when creating the backstory of the dystopian Earth in my superhuman series.
