    My question is if they’re truly all dead, or just moved off the grounds. Either way changing water temps are the likely culprit, and cause for alarm.

        Almost certainly. Keep in mind, with China, a single ICBM would carry enough warheads to take out a billion people. Ditto on India. Europe is 0.75. US is 0.33. That's 1/3 the way there.

        Maybe the rest dodge direct shots. But food runs out in six months. Won't grow for several years. Those that survive the initial volleys fight over dwindling food supplies. They wipe each other out within a year after.

        What comes after day one is ****ing bleak. Im running towards the flash.



        worth noting, a small exchange between Pakistan and India would block the sun for months or years. We're all ****ed ****ed ****ed with ANY nuclear exchange.

          When the closing leaked a few days ago water temps due to climate change was the reason suspected. I believe they also said the male numbers were better than last year but the females were way down which is a population disaster.

          (I admit I could remembering)

          The fleet likely knew it was coming. Many have been finding new fisheries.

            From just the Deadliest Catch gang, a few clearly knew this sort of action was coming soon. Sig (Northwestern) has been hitting up the king grounds around Norway for a few years now. I can only imagine the people that avoided the show (the smart ones) were even more ahead of the game.

              From here:


              One 2008 study looked at a Russia-US nuclear war scenario, where Russia would target 2,200 weapons on Western countries and the US would target 1,100 weapons each on China and Russia. In total, therefore, 4,400 warheads detonate, equivalent to roughly half the current inventories held each by Russia and the US.

              Nuclear weapons held by other states were not used in this scenario, which has a 440-Mt explosive yield, equivalent to about 150 times all the bombs detonated in World War II. This full-scale nuclear war was estimated to cause 770 million direct deaths and generate 180 Tg of soot from burning cities and forests. In the US, about half the population would be within 5km of a ground zero, and a fifth of the country’s citizens would be killed outright.

              A subsequent study, published in 2019, looked at a comparable but slightly lower 150 Tg atmospheric soot injection following an equivalent scale nuclear war. The devastation causes so much smoke that only 30-40 percent of sunlight reaches the Earth’s surface for the subsequent six months.

              A massive drop in temperature follows, with the weather staying below freezing throughout the subsequent Northern Hemisphere summer. In Iowa, for example, the model shows temperatures staying below 0?C for 730 days straight. There is no growing season. This is a true nuclear winter.

              Nor is it just a short blip. Temperatures still drop below freezing in summer for several years thereafter, and global precipitation falls by half by years three and four. It takes over a decade for anything like climatic normality to return to the planet.

              By this time, most of Earth’s human population will be long dead. The world’s food production would crash by more than 90 percent, causing global famine that would kill billions by starvation. In most countries less than a quarter of the population survives by the end of year two in this scenario. Global fish stocks are decimated and the ozone layer collapses.

              The models are eerily specific. In the 4,400 warhead/150 Tg soot nuclear war scenario, averaged over the subsequent five years, China sees a reduction in food calories of 97.2 percent, France by 97.5 percent, Russia by 99.7 percent, the UK by 99.5 percent and the US by 98.9 percent. In all these countries, virtually everyone who survived the initial blasts would subsequently starve.


              Human extinction?

              Even the 150 Tg soot nuclear war scenario is orders of magnitude less than the amount of smoke and other particulates put into the atmosphere by the asteroid that hit the Earth at the end of the Cretaceous, 65 million years ago, killing the dinosaurs and about two-thirds of species alive at the time.

              This implies that some humans would survive, eventually to repopulate the planet, and that a species-level extinction of Homo sapiens is unlikely even after a full-scale nuclear war. But the vast majority of the human population would suffer extremely unpleasant deaths from burns, radiation and starvation, and human civilization would likely collapse entirely. Survivors would eke out a living on a devastated, barren planet.

              It was this shared understanding of the consequences of nuclear Armageddon that led to the 1985 statement by then US President Ronald Reagan and Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev that “a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought.” This statement was reaffirmed by Presidents Biden and Putin as recently as January 2022. Even as war rages in Ukraine it remains as true now as it was then.

              With children’s hospitals bombed and refugees shelled as they flee, emotions run high. But cool heads must ultimately prevail, so that we can collectively step back from the brink of Russia-NATO confrontation before it is too late. The price of nuclear escalation is planetary suicide, with no winners at all. That won’t save lives in Ukraine — it will simply take the death toll of the current war from the thousands to the billions.

                    The Cornelia Marie has been going to Hawaii for I think 4-5 years. Jake is helping Sig in Norway and fished cod last year for half the run.

                    I would guess more fishing for Golden King, Blue and Bairdai for those that are stuck only fishing there.

                        It’s been declining for decades. The amount of permits allowed has been cut drastically and the amount of boats going out has declined as a result. They knew this was going to happen. Heck, people in that area and the Native orgs have been raising the climate change alarm for years (they just get out voted by derps on the road system).

                          This was the main reason for going to the "quota" system instead of the "get what you can while the season is open" derby that was around in the 00's wasn't it? It's been a known conclusion... Just a matter of time for it to get here and become recognized by everyone...

                            Yeah, for everything else being a s-show, Alaska Department of Fish & Game does know what they're doing and has been trying to sound the alarm on this.
