A path where no man thought : nuclear winter and the end of the arms race

Image of item
CD Audiobook

Unabridged ; CD + CD-ROM.

In 1982, Professors Sagan and Turco made known their discovery of the concept 'nuclear winter', a widespread cold and dark, resulting in agricultural collapse and world famine, that would be generated in even a 'small' nuclear war. It was a landmark discovery that revealed in the starkest terms how vulnerable civilization is to the long-term environmental effects of nuclear war.Carl Sagan, Pulitzer prize winning science writer, and Richard Turco, tell the personal story of their findings, and how, despite the much-heralded thawing of the Cold War, there are dangerous inadequacies in nuclear policy and doctrine that need to be addressed.
