Nuclear Winter

I looked up nuclear winter, just because it had always sounded vaguely terrifying. It turns out its not. One could create nuclear winter by firebombing lots of cities. It has nothing to do with the nuclear nature of the weapon, but is a result of soot in the atmosphere blocking sunlight. For a name like nuclear winter, I wanted its consequences to be much more chilling.

Hmph. That's all nuclear winter is? How dull. It must get used in so many post-apocalyptic sci-fi things just cuz it sounds cool.
