If you think that nukes going off in American cities is a real possiblity, then you should do some research. That research should begin by reading Nuclear War Survival Skills by Cresson H. Kearny. This is the classic text by Mr. Kearny. I’ve read it and you should read it.
I have also watched a couple of DVDs done by Mr. Kearny that are also called Nuclear War Survival Skills. They are really interesting, and will teach you the facts about what happens when a nuclear bomb detonates. They also will teach you what to do in order to protect yourself and your family in the event of a nuclear detonation in your area.
The biggest myth about a nuke is that everyone dies. If you are at ground zero, then yes, you’re a goner, but the truth is most people will survival a nuclear explosion.
The book is available for free online. Just go to the website of Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine:
