In the scenario, simulated using state-of-the-art global climate models, India and Pakistan use 100 and 150 strategic nuclear weapons respectively, releasing 16-36 million tonnes of soot (black carbon) in smoke that would rise into the upper atmosphere, blocking solar radiation.

India-origin scientist V Balaji is part of the team engaged in developing models that simulate climate change and its effects and are used in reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. He has also ensured that Indian and South African models figure in the next global ‘competition’ of climate models which is currently underway and whose assessment be available by 2021
According to scientist Swapna Panickal, the current global models have larger uncertainty when it comes to predicting the impact of climate change on the South Asian monsoon.(HT Photo)
