This video details the catastrophic global consequences of even a "limited" regional nuclear war on the other side of the planet. Recent peer-reviewed studies, done by atmospheric scientists Alan Robock (Rutgers), Brian Toon (University of Colorado-Boulder), Richard Turco (UCLA) and colleagues, predict that even a relatively "limited" nuclear war between India and Pakistan, in which each side uses 50 Hiroshima-sized nuclear weapons against the other's cities, could create immense firestorms that would quickly surround the planet with a dense stratospheric smoke layer.

Read more about the West Virginia Future Fund here. West Virginia is a state with vast natural resources—timber, oil, gas, and, most famously, coal. Those non-renewable resources are quickly disappearing and, with them, the hope for West Virginia's future unless we create a Future Fund—a mineral trust fund—to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Since the 1880s, much of West Virginia's wealth has left the state in railcars and trucks.
