Are the Arctic warm enough to absorb a nuclear warhead?
Is it really possible for a thermonuclear weapon to detonate in the Arctic Ocean?
And does a thermo-nuclear bomb really pose a threat to our safety?
A recent report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office found that, yes, thermonucleation is a possibility for the future.
In the report, GAO concluded that the United States is a “low-priority” target for thermonutrients, meaning that it would take decades for the Arctic to become habitable, meaning the potential is there.
This means that the military may be able to use thermonu-nucleated nuclear weapons in the future to destroy key components of the Arctic’s ecosystem.
The GAO report is just the latest confirmation of the risks posed by the warming Arctic.
Last month, a team of scientists warned that global warming could accelerate the loss of Arctic ecosystems.
This includes the loss or loss of polar bears, polar bears that are essential to the food supply for the polar bear population, which would be devastating.
In January, the U:S.
Geological Survey said that there is a high probability that ice sheets in the polar regions could melt within the next 20 years, and it could take centuries for those ice sheets to melt.
The report by GAO noted that the Arctic ice sheet is now in the midst of an unprecedented cycle of ice loss.
Scientists predict that ice will disappear in a matter of decades, and the Arctic will be completely devoid of ice cover by 2100.
The study also found that the number of ice sheets worldwide could fall by nearly 40 percent by the end of the century.
The Arctic is the sixth largest ocean on Earth, but it is also the fourth largest ice shelf in the world.
The research suggests that the ice sheet will likely continue to melt, and that it could also expand in the next decade.
The researchers said that the rapid expansion of ice could lead to the destruction of habitat and food sources in the northern Arctic, including polar bears and seals.
This could further increase the risk of a catastrophic meltdown of the polar ice sheets.
The polar ice could eventually lose up to 1,000 square miles of ice in a century.
If that happens, it would result in the loss not only of ice, but of ice shelf, and would also affect marine life in the sea.
The U.K. National Polar Research Center recently warned that the world is rapidly melting the polar ocean, with the ice shelf already shrinking to the point where it is no longer stable.
The loss of the ice could cause sea level to rise as much as 8 meters.
The melting of the ocean ice is accelerating because of climate change.
If we don’t act, the ice will melt and this could happen sooner than we think.
The melting of ice is also expected to increase sea levels by between 1 meter and 8 meters, potentially putting at risk some of the world’s most sensitive coastal areas.
What do you think about the Arctic melting?
Are thermonotonic weapons possible?
