That was . . . terrifying to watch.

Over 2000 nuclear weapons test detonated. Somehow Pakistan and India seem positively restrained in comparison to the US, Russia, and France.

What is the environmental effect of so many detonations? Why did France test over 200 nuclear weapons?

France commited to nuclear weapons and power in a big way. It saved them the cost of a large conventional army and provided a big deterrent to the Soviets.

Napa Valley wine production…they are really pissed and want to end it.
