Nukes and ozone

A 'small' local war -- 50 Hiroshimas -- could damage the ozone layer in mid-latitudes -- where you and I and other rich people live -- for years.

Mostly, the climate would get a little cooler for a year, and there would be an increased cancer hazard from UV rays. This is a small to medium-sized nuclear war we're talking about; the environmental damage would be short-term and fairly minor.

A bigger war would, of course, be much worse.
