Were there a nuclear exchange between the USA and DPRK the effects of nuclear winter would envelope, and destroy, virtually all life in the entire Northern Hemisphere. Any life--any vestige of humanity, if any at all--remaining would be in the less "winterized" Southern Hemisphere. The weather report you depictions here is, at best, terrifyingly optimistic because global warming (AKA, climate change, whatever...) would be eliminated by the pariculates in the upper atmosphere would eclipse the sun far longer than Krakatoa. One ray of sunshine: the nuclear exchange would not be as bad as the Chicxulub impact event that is believed to have created the global K-Pg boundary layer and resulted in the Cretaceous-Paleogene mass extinction. How encouraging is that?
