This prediction assumes that everybody will spend a lot of time basking in the sun during the first three years, when the UV levels will be high. The cancer would be a delayed effect of this exposure. There is a serious objection to this assumption, however. If the U V levels get that high, a Caucasian will develop a blistered sunburn within ten minutes of exposure to the sun. Incapacitating snowblindness will occur equally quickly in snowy areas. Most people will probably try to avoid the sun for a while, which should cut down on the projected skin cancer rate.
At the end of the first month, the rate of exposure is down to 1 R per hour and the total accumulated dosage is 7,300 R. What could people do to protect themselves at this location? A standard home fallout shelter will cut down radiation exposure to under 200 R for the whole month—a dose many people can tolerate without ill effects (see table 5). Unfortunately, the area would be radioactive enough to make it dangerous to re-occupy for two or three months. Unless retreaters are prepared to stay underground for ninety days or so, they should plan to evacuate.
More serious is the fact that many agricultural crops show tremendous variation in UV sensitivity. Corn, soybeans, barley, wheat, and alfalfa are fairly resistant to UV damage and can be relied on to grow under high UV illumination, but tomatoes, peas, beans, onions, sugar beets, and lettuce will not do well at all. I think about that fact every time I see advertisements for "disaster" vegetable seed canisters. 8 Most wild animals will not suffer greatly from the long-term radioactivity produced by a nuclear war.
