According to The Future Of Life Institute—"The National Security Archives recently published a declassified list of U.S. nuclear targets from 1956, which spanned 1,100 locations across Eastern Europe, Russia, China, and North Korea. The map below shows all 1,100 nuclear targets from that list, and we’ve partnered with NukeMap to demonstrate how catastrophic a nuclear exchange between the United States and Russia could be. If you click detonate from any of the dots, you can see how large an area would be destroyed by the bomb of your choice, as well as how many people could be killed."
Apparently, even though today's nuclear list is classified, it's speculated that it DOESN'T look all THAT different. Well, gee, that's reassuring!! This is the type of sh*t that keeps me awake at night (made all the more worse knowing that Trump has access or at the very least, knowledge of nuclear weapons).
Head HERE for The Future Of Life's interactive tool that can show you just how many people would die in the event of nuclear warfare based on the maps in the gallery below. Seriously, you can click 'DETONATE' and just watch the fallout zone get bigger and bigger and the number of casualties grow and grow. It's terrifying, TBH.

"This map drives the point home that unpredictable local weather patterns cause the impact of a nuclear blast to be felt elsewhere. For example, a bomb dropped in Russia affects Kazakhstan in the graphic above."—Daily Mail
