Most people in the United States don't know HOW to
survive Nuclear War. Russia has been teaching it's people for 40 years HOW to
prepare and survive.
Our flyers will educate people about what will happen, AND
what they should do now. First, people will have to "unlearn" all
the false AND foolish stories that they have heard before.
It will NOT BE the end of the world. It will not crack the
earth into pieces. The atmosphere and AIR, will NOT be poisoned around the world. Millions
will die (about 1/3 of the people on the earth.) BUT, I am not a pessimist, I'm
an optimist, I'm planning to survive. AND you can too! BUT you will need to get
ready AND be prepared.
I won't exaggerate on how bad it will be, BUT I'm telling
you now, HOW to prepare AND live reasonably well. MOST of the bombs that hit the
USA will be AIR BURSTS, "high" over cities, and the fireball will never
touch the ground. Those bombs produce MORE damage over a larger area, BUT
they produce little or no fallout.
WHEN a BOMB is low enough that the fireball does
touch the surface, then the heat (millions of degrees) vaporizes everything and leaves a
crater (hole). A 5 megaton surface burst leaves a hole 1/2 mile across and about
200 feet deep. That's "a 20 story building" deep hole. Those Bombs
will be sent to destroy our missile silos, airfields, hydro-electric Dams
that make electricity, AND our military bases. THAT millions of tons of dirt, steel,
concrete, OR whatever? as it is carried up into the mushroom cloud begins to cool and
forms grains of sand, grit, dust. It is all very radio-active, AND very deadly, AS it
begins to fallout of the sky for hundreds of miles downwind, AND a few miles
around the hole.
Because "Radiation" does Decay, it will not kill
everyone. The longer the fallout is in the sky the less deadly it is. Think of a
flashlight with, NEW powerful Batteries; the longer it is on, the weaker it gets. ALL
fallout for the first TWO (2) Days is "very, VERY" Deadly. Plan to be
sheltered for at least 1 week, 2 is better.
FALLOUT DECAY is based in the "7-10 Rule"
(Remember, LIKE 7-11 stores). That rule is that for each multiple of 7
times SINCE the bomb exploded, the fallout is 1/10 as deadly. To put this into a real
problem, we need to know that 450 "R" will kill about 1/2 of the people.
SO if the bomb produces 1000 R "PER hour", WHEN
the bomb explodes, and you were in the fallout for 1/2 hour, you would receive about 500
R. AND that would make everyone sick AND kill 1/2 the people. SEVEN HOURS
LATER, it would have decayed down to 100 R PER hour, still very deadly. (7-10
SEVEN TIMES (7) THAT or 49 HOURS (48 HOURS IS 2 DAYS) later
would have decayed to 10 R PER hour, still deadly if your exposed very long.
SEVEN TIMES LATER (2 days X 7, OR 2 weeks SINCE
it would have decayed to 1 R PER hour, which is not
healthy and could kill some people over a longer period of time.
Children who are closer to the ground get a dose WORSE
than adults. WHEN the dose rate is low enough and will not kill for 10 or 15 years
it is a lot better for adults who are 60 or 70 now to go out for supplies THAN a
young person. Why condemn the young to die in 10 years? STAY SHELTERED UNTIL the dose
rate drops to 1/2 R PER hour. Don't fool yourself, the bomb may have been big enough
that the first fallout is 10 times worse than this example.
PLAN your shelter stay for "one week", at least. PREPARE
NOW, because IF your out in the fallout, fixing your shelter 2 or 3 hours AFTER the bomb
hits, it is 50 times worse than it would be 2 days later. There is no reason FOR a sick,
painful, agonizing death if you'll get ready now.
