The headaches disappeared, and my plumbing problems cleared up, but otherwise things remained almost exactly the same. A wobbly gyroscope; a normal guy in an abnormal world. But now and then, when the pressures began to accumulate, it cheered me up to think about Chuck Adamson, remembering that dismal face of his, imagining his campaign for the gh school, anti-baseball, anti-social. Like a busy signal, you know?

Nuclear weapons, or nukes for short, are immensely powerful, late-game area-of-effect weapons in Civilization VI. Each one of them may be used only once.

The Nuclear Age (Problems in American Civilization Series). As a long-time student of the Cold War and nuclear weapons, Winkler's well-written, easily understood book gave me a concise perspective of where we've been in the arms race and shows hope for tomorrow if only people would take a stand as a whole and face the problem of nuclear weapons. Winkler makes note that Americans have traditionally avoided the issue. They found it simpler to cast furtive, sidelong glances at the bomb, just as we do today, and so avoid facing it directly.

The Nuclear Waste Problem . To generate one kilowatt hour of energy-the amount an American household consumes in 48 minutes-nuclear power plants only emit 12 grams of carbon dioxide- enough to fill about three two-liter soda bottles. Meanwhile, to produce the same amount of energy, coal plants emit 820 grams of CO2-about a full bathtub’s worth. Opening the nuclear storage facilities would release radiation into a future civilization, so we have to tell them to leave the sites alone, but that’s easier said than done.
