As you may have noticed, we like to blow stuff up on this channel. So when the International Red Cross approached us to collaborate on a video about nuclear weapons, we were more than excited.
Until we did the research. It turned out we were a bit oblivious off the real impact of nuclear weapons in the real world, on a real city. And especially, how helpless even the most developed nations on earth would be if an attack occurred today.
So hopefully this video demonstrates how extremely non fun a real world nuclear attack would be, without being too gruesome. This collaboration was a blast (no pun intended) and we want to say a huge thank you to the International Red Cross!

I did some measurements and figured out that biggest radius of my city is 42.5 km. I live a few kilometers away from the edge, but close to center anyway. This means that if my city gets nuked with at least power of nuke from this video, I will be just instantly burnt to a lump of ashes, without suffering from cancer. What a relief!

Well the first country that deployed a nuke was the U.S. so I think the real threat has been obvious since ww2. Even Marshal islands in Atlantic Ocean are now contaminated due to U.S. nuclear experiments.

Every day that nuclear weapons exist on Earth there is a chance that an early warning system will malfunction, terrorists will get their hands on the bomb, a delusional leader will send the rockets, a misunderstanding between superpowers will escalate to a war and so on. All of us lose everything if any of this happens. Nuclear weapons must be destroyed, it's the only real way to prevent them from being used. The principle of mutually assured destruction almost lead to a nuclear war during cold war on so many occasions. The nukes and the people holding them didn't go anywhere after the end of the Soviet Union. Unfortunately now we see world leaders gripping ever tighter on their nukes. We might actually be the generation that witnesses them being used.

My oppinion is that nuclear weapons should ne banned BUT since more than 40 years of the signation of the agreement for no ploriferation of nuclear weapons that countries as USA, China, Rússia, France, Israel and etc. Did absolutely NOTHING to eliminate their own weapons. Much the oposite they (Specialy USA) use them to threat others countries and so get economic advatage in the geopolitical scenario. Due this i do think that until these countries eliminate their own weapons they cannot compel others to dont develop this tecnology. And thus i do think that my country (Brazil) should and MUST have this gun since (unfortunately) this be the only way that we have to actualy ensure our sovereignty, because the pressure of USA here is huge and abusive. But even if Brazil had the bomb, in the very same day that USA, China, Russsia and etc decide to extinguish completely their nuclear weapons i would support withoult any doubt to others countries do the same. In the end nuclear weapons ate terrible and i do really hate them, its inhuman, but unfortunately in the actual world that USA created after the end of wwII this kind of inhuman gun is being used to threaten and take advatage over other countries, very often promoting the hunger, unemployment and underdevelopment on these "targeted" countries and this is is also unacceptable. Any kind of external threat to the autonomy of sovereign countries over the world is unacceptable. No matter if its done throught a nuclear weapon or economic sanctions which are as worse as a nuclear attack.
