Survival of the Relocated Population of the U.S. After a Nuclear Attack
OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LAB TN
Pagination or Media Count:
At least 190 million Americans would survive a nuclear attack of 6600 megatons 1444 weapons, current Soviet capability if 90 million were evacuated from high-risk areas during the crisis period preceding the attack. This report presents solutions to problems of continuing survival of the surviving population of the United States in the face of threats from postattack food shortages and fallout radiation hazards. Reserves of food, transportation capacity, and fuel would survive the attack to provide more than adequate capability to feed the entire population until the first harvest after the attack.
