In a strategy that threatens to create a realistic anthropogenic climate change, Russia's President Putin offers to share nuclear
technology with Saudi Arabia and the Sunni Gulf Oil States
. Having already aided Shia Iran in its quest to acquire nuclear clout, Russia is now offering to help the other side of the great Islamic divide. Muslim clerics have gone on record declaring that Allah made the nuclear bomb to be used for his glory. A nuclear war between Shia and Sunni Islam should make a lot of mullahs, imams, and ayatollahs very happy. But what about the rest of us?
Scientists suspect that even a limited third world nuclear exchange
could trigger a nuclear winter, with the threat of up to hundreds of millions dead from starvation--due to badly curtailed growing seasons in the world's great bread basket regions. If true, that would certainly qualify as a bona fide climate disaster
