Does Russia & US Arms Reduction Treaty Lower Chance of Nuclear Winter?

Image via Liquid Daddy Even if there are caveats abound, Obama and Medvedev’s signing of a nuclear arms reduction treaty is a very big deal. The biggest caveat is probably that the actual reductions in arms from each nation’s nuclear arsenal aren’t exactly huge–but nonetheless, it’s very significant progress. After all, the chances of a nuclear winter occurring are higher now than ever before (while global warming is serious, the change in climate triggered by a nuclear winter would be immediately catastrophic), and this symbolic agreement sends a signal to the world that nuclear disarmament is possible.
