The planet is warming, we all accept that now, and fast. The solution needed must also produce effects fast. Electric vehicles, alternative energy sources and the other solutions found until now by scientists and engineers aren't enough. According to NASA, the single fastest and probably most effective way to cool down the planet is a nuclear war.
Small in scale, the war should lead to the detonation of around 100 Hiroshima-sized nukes. The effects of all those bombs, found the NASA scientists, would be enough to cool down the planet by 2.25 degrees F (1.25 degrees C) in the next two to three years after detonation. Of course, humanity would be extinct by then, plagued by radiation, disease and lack of sunlight, but at least the planet will be saved.
The computerized model used by NASA to research the effects of a nuclear war on global warming found that the detonation of the 100 bombs (the equivalent of 15,000 tons of TNT, or 0.03 percent of the current nuclear arsenal on the planet) says that in parts of Europe, Asia and Alaska, the temperature would drop by 5.4 to 7.2 degrees F (3 to 4 degrees C).
The reasons behind the drop in temperature are mostly the fires which would result from the nuclear detonation. According to NASA, the fires would release into the air five million metric tons of black carbon, who would block out the sun's heat.
