Houstonians scared that Trump might actually do the "nuke thing" wanted to know, "Where do I hide!"

...Hiding (click here) in the sub-basement of a brick five-story apartment building, for example, should expose you to just 1/200 of the amount of fallout radiation outside.

Meanwhile, hanging out in the living room of your one-story, wood-frame house will only cut down the radiation by half, which — if you are next to a nuclear explosion — will not do much to help you.

So, what do you do if there isn't a good shelter right near you? Should you stay in a "poor" shelter, or risk exposure to find a better one? And how long should you wait?


Wealthy Americans always think you have to hide SOMEWHERE in order to live through a nuclear holocaust. Understand at least this, a holocaust of any kind can't be hidden away from.

It is why the silly Democrats came up with the concept of peace and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Imagine not having to hide again because the Russian Supreme Court decided to instill a "One Religion Policy."

If one has to build a subbasement to a subbasement there is dearly little quality of life. I got it, the USA is suppose to be immune from such problems because it is a superpower with interceptor missiles. Well, while they work for Israel the USA has many, many more square miles where a loose nuke can get through. So, with a mind set of "Nah, nah, you can't get me," the USA under Trump is throwing it's weight around as if he is allowed to do that. By now, with Maralago permitting paying guests to mill around with the President, his nuclear football and any guests, who knows what kind of BUNKER an American will have to build.

I look at it this way. It isn't the tensions of brinkmanship that bothers me. Everyone knows if it is "Game On" the game is over. So, when I retreat into my subterranean bunker to hide out just long enough that the nuclear radiation isn't fatal in two hours; what will I find when I come out? Probably rifles pointed at any survivor by the country with the nukes that won the war and it may not be American. Or. Rifles pointed at me because of the lack of food because the USA did win the war.

What has anyone gained? Seriously, what has anyone gained after a nuclear holocaust. When the USA dropped the nukes on Japan, there was no real retaliation by Japan. The USA is among very different circumstances today and the idea the world would be a better and more peaceful place after a nuclear war exchange during WWIII is a fool's game.

If the nukes don't get you, the high velocity winds of the climate crisis will.
