    Hey, simple idea popped into my head. Unlimited power, right? Yes! And what can you do to grow crops without sunlight? 2 things. Hydroponics facility's, and mushrooms. Water, as seen in fallout, can be purfied quite easily, and as seen in fallout 76, mearly boiling it (Which probally wouldnt work), but, you can use water purfiers, which, with some effort the sole survivor can make. Now, no radation on the plants, and with de-salantation machines, and and ocean right next door, as well as the amazon river, if de-salantation machines are not avaible. And, if technogly for thats destroyed, simple, low tech solution. Mushrooms. They need some organic matterial and other requirements that with a little preparation, and a small amount of tempture control, but otherwise, most pepole could grow mushrooms by themselves (source: So, i believe fallout's not doomed! - A crazy penguin

      Blasting ash into the atmosphere could help alleviate the symptoms of AGW, but it won't stop the cause. If we were to deploy this solution, we'd have to keep doing so until co2 came back to pre-industrial levels, otherwise there'd be a huge temperature spike as soon as we stop pumping stuff into our atmosphere.

  • VisionT100
    VisionT100 Month ago

    Okay here me out and stick with me, its a long comment but it might explain how these countries could continue to live and possible strive following a nuclear war. After re-watching this for the nth time i thought of something that could save these non-involved countries (at least in the fallout universe, if nukes drop tomorrow we are all screwed). Following the invention of the micro-fusion cell, humans have access to essentially unlimited power (to a point at least). Using this fusion power and seeing tensions rising between all countries in the great war, these countries begin to develop great growing stations underground. With access to the amount of uranium they have and the ability to use advanced technology to build these vast grow beds within maybe 4-5 years, countries in south america and Africa secretly develop nuclear precautions in case the rest of the world goes kaboom. Since grow lights are relatively easy to mass produce and with the energy behind them to back them up it could be plausible that these countries recognized that nuclear war was coming, and used things similar to the GREAT SEED BANK that's in a permafrost zone that has like... every kind of seed imaginable, in order to preserve their food stocks, and thus their population, in time for them to rebuild there society in order to conform to the rules of this new world. Now obviously in today's universe/world this couldn't happen. These countries are too reliant on the rest of the world to survive, but in a world torn apart by war, on the brink of destruction, along with the help of some bullshit futuristic fusion tech, it's possible that there could have been some kind of secret alliance that came about behind the scenes to prep for the events of October 2077. Long story short, like I said, if nukes drop tomorrow we are all dead, scraps of humanity might live in cells for some time, but chance of recovery is low. That being said, if 50 years from now humans have yet to blow each other up, and we have access to far better power sources than we do now, countries that are smart and prepare for the inevitable could strive with the rest of the world unable to hinder their progress. All we have to do is develop some kind of power source that allows "easy access", micro fusion cells are a bit on the extreme end, being able to vaporize massive monsters, yet being small enough o fit in the palm of your hand, but it's not unimaginable that a power option a fraction of that could be developed could allow for these countries where electricity is scarce and hard to move around right now, to bloom into great nations since these things could power water purifiers and food production plants that would keep their population alive for long enough to make great strides.

    But would these countries have access to that new energy resource? My guess is all the physical research would be in the desolate wastelands that were once first world competitor nations. The most generous bones I can throw your way to make that work is the data was still available via the internet, or smuggled into africa or south america via safely keeping them in shelters.

    Wouldn't they be able to use the fusion cores to power grow lamps to provide crops with the light needed to grow?
    It wold take a metric f**k ton of lamps and a constant supply of power but it could be done. Heck, most countries could convert any existing sports stadiums with relative ease. Since the energy is free that part of the equation is a moot point. Also, most of our lighting is manufactured in Mexico and South America which would be largely untouched by the war and nukes.
