As you may have noticed, we like to blow stuff up on this channel. So when the International Red Cross approached us to collaborate on a video about nuclear weapons, we were more than excited.
Until we did the research. It turned out we were a bit oblivious off the real impact of nuclear weapons in the real world, on a real city. And especially, how helpless even the most developed nations on earth would be if an attack occurred today.
So hopefully this video demonstrates how extremely non fun a real world nuclear attack would be, without being too gruesome. This collaboration was a blast (no pun intended) and we want to say a huge thank you to the International Red Cross!

Yeah, mmm nooo. That is counting with world leaders to be trustworthy. Powerful countries will never get rid of their nuclear weapons. The only way to avoid a nuclear war is, ironically, to make sure everyone has enough of them that it will mean mutual annihilation. That will be the deterrent. The knowledge that you may fire first but then we'll fire too wiping civilization from the face of the planet. Making clear that no one will win, everyone will lose.

Check out the 1984 British Film THREADS if you want a real human - not cartoon - perspective...just be aware that you'll probably have nightmares for many months/years after watching this film! The 1983 American film THE DAY AFTER presaged THREADS, but in all fairness THREADS makes THE DAY AFTER look like a Disney movie...!

I'm sorry, but "Let's all eliminate nuclear weapons from the word"? Yes, its a wonderful ideal, but unfortunately, we all know that this will not happen. Is there a country who volunteers to dismantle its nuclear arsenal first? US? China? Russia? France? North Korea? And who will guarantee that the other countries will follow suit, or that no one country will keep some of their nuclear arsenals in secret to be used as their hidden trump card? Lets face the fact - The ONLY time all nuclear weapons will be dismantled is when mankind has invented something that is far more powerful and deadly. And as long as human nature remains unchanged, man will always crave for something more powerful and deadly.

Sorry to go against when you said no nation is prepared, but I'm thinking,, if one nucleare bomb took a big city, would the humanitarian response be good enough if thousands and thousands of medical workers were flown in quickly, thousands if builders for quick hospital and road building, tones of building supplies, heaps of vehicles and millions of tonnes of food and water from friendly countries

Never going to happen. Almost everyone figured out how to make them and I can't even imagine what types of missiles we have now compared to Hiroshima. Everyone can say they threw all the nukes away but all it takes is a small team to make one and save it just in case. Also the fact that I guarantee you if we ever have another world war, no one would oblige to losing if it meant the way of life they live vanished. I wouldn't be shocked if let's say someone like China who knew they were going to lose didn't just nuke themselves so no one else could have the land. What everyone needs is a anti nuke air defense but even then, with how advanced bombs are it would still probably kill thousands due to radiation spread.

Shame he left out what it's actually like to survive the blast. If you want a much more real version of this video, look up Pika-Don or Barefoot Gen. Kurzgesagt leaves out all the fun stuff like ant walking alligators, which is a real shame and kinda defeats the purpose of the video. Nuclear weapons are horrific terror weapons. If you want to scare people into disarmament, don't pull your punches to keep things PG. Show the reality of it.
