Professor Lili Xia of Rutgers University Says, A Nuclear War Between the U.S. and Russia Would Cause a Global Famine and Kill More Than Two-thirds of the World’s Population, That’s Over 5 Billion People — so Let’s Not do That

nuclear war between Russia and the US would trigger a global famine that would wipe out almost two-thirds of the world’s population, a new study suggests.

More than five billion people would die of hunger during the fallout from a full-scale conflicts, researchers say, with computer simulations showing that firestorms would release soot into the upper atmosphere and block out the sun.

This would in turn spark crop failure across the world.

Lead author Professor Lili Xia, of Rutgers University in New Jersey, said: “The data tell us one thing. We must prevent a nuclear war from ever happening.”
