It would only take 100 nuclear bombs to cause global devastation, chilling study warns (yet there are 15,000 around the world)

A large-scale nuclear attack would have devastating effects not just on the area targeted, but on the aggressor nation as well, a new study warns.

In a first of its kind study, researchers have estimated how many nuclear weapons could put a nation past its tipping point if used – and they say it’s about 100.

Between the nine nuclear nations, however, there are roughly 15,000 nuclear weapons in the world.

Even in the best case scenario, scientists warn a major attack could trigger worldwide effects, with millions killed in the initial blast, and a global ‘nuclear autumn' leading to food shortages and mass starvation.
