"If you are worried about rapid, catastrophic changes to the planet’s climate, then you must be worried about nuclear war," writes Meyer. "That is because, on top of killing tens of millions of people, even a relatively “minor” exchange of nuclear weapons would wreck the planet’s climate in enormous and long-lasting ways."
