A nuclear conflagration between India and Pakistan would devastate the world’s food supplies, a new study claims.

A new study led by the University of Chicago and a scientist, is that in the event of such conflict, it would have terrible consequences far beyond that region of the world.

The researchers combined climate, agricultural and economic models to show that a limited nuclear conflict would lead to a decade of global cooling and a significant decline in the production of the crop, which would jeopardize global food security.

“The impact was very stark, first-time author James Jägermeyr, a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Chicago, Department of Computer Science and of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, said in a statement.

According to the survey, four years after the nuclear conflict in one of the 132 of 153 member countries, with a total population of 5 million people could experience food shortages of up to 10 percent of the time.

“It would be the biggest failure that has ever been recorded, is larger than that of the Dust Bowl in the 30’s and the crossing of the impacts of the largest volcanic eruptions in modern history,” Jägermeyr he said.

This is kind of sudden change in the climate could result in a serious loss of crop, which would meet the cost of the consequences of a regional conflict, causing a global financial crisis.

The study, which was published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, which was able to simulate the global knock-on effects of the use of nuclear weapons, and the subsequent of release of large amounts of fire-generated soot, in the atmosphere of the Earth.

“The onset of the cooling is actually more harmful to the world-wide production of the crop than the same amount of the anthropogenic warming of the earth,” Jägermeyr explained in a statement.

“It’s mainly hit the northern breadbasket regions, while it is, in fact, happen overnight, in comparison to a very gradual, long-term, systematic climate change in which societies are the options for adaptation. In this case, the cooling takes place within a year, and we don’t have the capacity to manage the roll-out of new varieties of crops to adapt to a changed environment,” he said.
