Nuclear war. Composite artwork of an aerial view of the Florida peninsula, USA, showing explosions of multiple nuclear bombs during a nuclear war. Fallout consisting of dust, radioactive debris, and the smoke from fires will in time block some of the Sun's heat and light, leading to a "nuclear winter". This could cause lowering of global temperatures by as much as 10 degrees Celsius, which would kill countless animals and plants, as well as humans and their sources of food.
