Havana, Sep 15. -The leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, attended a lecture in Havana, "Climatic Consequences of a Nuclear Conflict," by U.S. scientist Alan Robock of Rutgers University.
Only disarmament will prevent the possibility of an environmental catastrophe, stated the expert, a professor at the university in the U.S. state of New Jersey, according to Cuba's early morning TV news program.
Fidel Castro called on scientists to make known the consequences of a nuclear war for life on the planet.
Robock demonstrated how smog would cover the Earth if a nuclear war were to happen.
In all cases, death from shock waves and the absence of light all over the world, which in turn would bring temperatures below freezing and the destruction of crops.
The researcher explained that he and a group of professors have thoroughly analyzed the theory of a nuclear winter, taking into account the nuclear arsenals of different countries.
The Cuban leader called on the scientific community to make known the dangers of such a war, saying informational messages on the issue should be as common as television commercials. (Prensa Latina)
