Only two countries will survive in the event of a nuclear war

Only two countries will survive in the event of a nuclear war

There is a possibility that about 5 billion people could die within just 72 hours in the event of a nuclear war.

However, don’t panic because there is good news too!

According to investigative journalist and author Annie Jacobsen, there are only two countries you can stay in in the event of a nuclear war.

The 56-year-old, from Connecticut, USA, should note that she has spent years researching the possible implications of such a threat.

“Agriculture will fail, and when agriculture fails, people will die. Moreover, we will have radiation poisoning…”

Returning to the two countries that seem to be the only lifeline, the expert explains that nuclear attacks would cause dense smoke from the fires to spread across three continents, eventually leading to a mini ice age.

This would likely kill five billion of the Earth’s eight billion people in less than 24 hours.

“People will have to live underground.”

“Most of the world, certainly the mid-latitudes, will be covered in ice sheets… Places like Iowa and Ukraine will be covered in snow for 10 years,” Jacobsen explained on the CEO Diaries podcast.

“Agriculture will fail, and when agriculture fails, people will die. “Furthermore, we will suffer from radiation poisoning because the ozone layer will be greatly destroyed and will not be able to get out in the sunlight… and people will have to live underground,” he added.

Australia and New Zealand

Jacobsen said Professor Brian Toone, a leading expert in climate and atmospheric science, told her that only two countries could survive a nuclear winter – New Zealand and Australia, which could “sustain their agriculture”.
