Regional Nuclear War Would Cause Worldwide Destruction

From the article:

Think you might escape the aftereffects of a limited nuclear war that happens on the other side of the globe from you? Think again.Imagine that the long-simmering conflict between India and Pakistan broke out into a war in which each side deployed 50 nuclear weapons against the other country’s megacities. Karachi, Bombay, and dozens of other South Asian cities catch fire like Hiroshima and Nagasaki did at the end of World War II.

Beyond the local human tragedy of such a situation, a new study looking at the atmospheric chemistry of regional nuclear war finds that the hot smoke from burning cities would tear holes in the ozone layer of the Earth. The increased UV radiation resulting from the ozone loss could more than double DNA damage, and increase cancer rates across North America and Eurasia.

This is Afternow and if you don´t know what Tales from the Afternow you should check it out.

Here is some lines from the story:

Altogether something like 13 nuclear bombs went off
The government had satellites in space to try and stop this very thing
They hit them you know.
They shot them with these lasers I guess from satellites.
Of course everybody knows that they had these lasers in space so the bombs were armed once, well once they left you know airspace, that was it.
They were, they were armed and when the lasers hit them well they just detonated in the atmosphere. Right in the ozone layer.
Bombs went out in the ozone layer and started a chain reaction.
Burned off 95% of our Ozone layer, I heard a stat.
Somebody said it was 95%, other people say it was 50%, 40%, I do’, I don’t know.

This is so scary that I´m shiting bricks, check out Afternow now.
