Numnutz of the Week (for Outstanding Nuclear Boneheadedness):

In a so-called “limited” nuclear war, “only” 1% of the world’s population would be killed – a mere 76 MILLION PEOPLE — so of course, in the face of such horror and devastation, it’s only natural that people would think immediately of protecting… their investment portfolios!  Here’s the LINK to the article.  (Shocking to think this came from the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.  You’d think they would be able to focus on the science, the health devastation, the destructio of climate, crops, the crumbling of society – do they actually think they’ll be able to keep “civilization” together after a nuclear war, even a so-called “limited” one?  “Numnutz” is too weak a term to cover that eventuality.)
