The modern world is threaten by atomic bombs, chemical weapons, and

other nuclear weapons. The nuclear weapon is the number one problem facing

atom and found energy, but instead it was used for destroying the next

country. The effect on the modern world in devastating. More recent atomic

weapons are the ICBM missile. These missiles have multiple warheads that

can destroy the entire world in less then 35 minutes.

Nuclear war would produced so much smoke that rapid, substantial

middle Northern Hemisphere. Smaller temperature decreases might occur in

low latitudes but more importantly in these regions rainfall would probably

decreases because monsoons could not develop.

Like in On The Beach, all

the radiation move towards Australia and everyone innocent people died.

A large-scale nuclear war would lessen food production over large

expanses in the Northern Hemisphere, this could occur through acute

climatic conditions which chilling or freezing temperatures occurring for

brief periods during the growing season which could destroy crops or lower

production. As result of the variety of potential physical and societal

disruptions to agriculture from a large-scale nuclear war, agriculture in

the Northern Hemisphere could be shut down or significantly reduced for the

first growing season after war and maybe several growing seasons. Only the

major grain-producing countries such as United States, Canada, and

Australia had enough stored food to keep their populations alive if they
