A war using even a small percentage of the world’s nuclear weapons threatens the lives of two billion people, a new report warns.

Nuclear Famine: Two Billion People at Risk? offers an updated edition to the groups’ April of 2012 report, which the groups say “may have seriously underestimated the consequences of a limited nuclear war.”
