The CDC launched an ominous campaign this week—including pictures of mushroom clouds—to prepare Americans for the prospect of a nuclear winter.
This week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that they will be holding a briefing which is designed to instruct the public on how to prepare for a nuclear war. A post on the agency's website said that the briefing will be taking place on January 16th at the Alexander D. Langmuir Auditorium in Atlanta Georgia. The briefing will be hosted by a number of CDC representatives including Dan Sosin, Robert Whitcomb, and Betsy Kagey.
Some examples of the presentations that will be given are "Public Health: Preparing for the Unthinkable", "Using Data and Decision Aids to Drive Response Efforts", "Public Health Resources to Meet Critical Components of Preparedness" and "Roadmap to Radiation Preparedness."
