Do You Know What To Do In A Nuclear Attack? - Page 9
Sadly, in my youth, I was almost obsessed with the possibility of nuclear attack. The prime target in the 70's was Seattle, so after such an attack we in Vancouver had approximately 4 hours to prepare for fallout. I had reams of books and instructions on how to convert basements, gather supplies, and other steps to harden a house into a safe place for many months. If you are not within 60 kms of the blast, you might be able to survive. Of course, since my memory works better with stuff from my youth than my recent week, I still recall a lot of it! :) If an all-out exchange happens between two superpowers, the world will be a dark cinder. Here's hoping the people in control of such things are wiser and don't start something which finishes us all.
