For all of its now nostalgic cold war language, the problem still exists. The doomsday machine of thermonuclear weapons still sit in there American and Russian silos, submarine fleets still prowl, and the threat of nuclear winter now stands proven. All of those weapons, or even just a few of them could trigger the stratospheric smoke of our burning cities, ending agriculture and humanity in an hour of fire an terror.  For your enjoyment, Cosmos, A Personal Voyage, Ep. 13, “Who Speaks for Earth,” found on youtube:
