 The night after…
Climatic and biological consequences of a nuclear war Scientists’ warning
Edited by Yevgeni Velikhov, Vice President
USSR Academy of Sciences
One cannot overestimate the sensational impacts of the conclusion of prominent Soviet scientists based on their investigations into the long­ term Global after-effects of a nucLear war. Their results were completely consistent with the data obtained vt American scientists, even though they used different research programs and methodologies. Leading Soviet and American Scientists delivered their grim and disturbing message at international conferences held in Moscow and Washington, and at a Seminar at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences in the Vatican in January 1984.
The scientists conclusion is clear and unambiguous: the use of even a fraction of the nuclear arsenal that exists in the world today would result in a nuclear night and a nuclear winter which would ultimately cause unprecedented global ecological disaster. Such atmospheric bomb would mean extermination of all living things on Earth.
This book covers the main research on the subject by Soviet scientists conducted under the auspices of the Soviet Scientists Committee for the Defence of Peace Against Nuclear threat.
The leading Soviet scientists, contributors to this collection, described in a popular manner, but on a highly scientific level the essense of those vital investigations which may well become the turning point in this extremely dangerous and senseless nuclear arms race.

The Soviet Scientists Committee for the Defence of Peace Against Nuclear Threat is a public organization of Soviet scientists formed in May 1983. The Com­ mittee consists of 25 members, includ­ ing Members and Corresponding Mem­ bers of the USSR Academy of Sciences, and world-renowned specialists from various fields—physics, biology, medi­ cine. politics, economy, etc. The Com­mittees main objective is to conduct scientific research of complex, interdis­ ciplinary problems, bearing directly on the most important task facing mankind today: the preservation of peace and the prevention of a nuclear catastrophe. One of the most important areas of research conducted under the aegis of the Com­mittee is the study of long-term world­ wide consequences of a nuclear war.
