    Solar is the way to go.

    Hillary Clinton and Robert Meuhler just have missed this episode because they certainly wouldn’t have sold Russia 20% of US uranium supply if they had.

  3. Frank Marburger on August 14, 2020 at 2:35 pm

    PS I thought the only thing is being dismantles in rockets that are obsolete quit playing games

  4. Michael Rustebakke on August 14, 2020 at 2:36 pm

    "the year is 2019 and tensions between the US and Russia are high" had me rolling on the floor. Little did they know that in 2019 the president would be best friends with Putin.

    This airing of this show fits in with the CCP (China Communist Party) distractions at this time. This chanal receives funding from the CCP.
    (just a thought)

    They start blaming Global Warming and I turned it off.

  7. Wilfredo Otero-Rossi on August 14, 2020 at 2:38 pm

    Here we go again, global warming…

  8. 100% Dork on August 14, 2020 at 2:39 pm

    Used to get home after school to find this on my grandparents tv…only time I would actually sit down.

  9. nolimitsoundpro on August 14, 2020 at 2:41 pm

  10. J R Deckard on August 14, 2020 at 2:44 pm

    We should have listened to Ted Kaczynski when we had the chance.

  11. George Hitchborn on August 14, 2020 at 2:46 pm

    I want this show back please.

  12. NeverTalkToCops1 on August 14, 2020 at 2:48 pm

    Nuclear bomb buffs will enjoy the MSAD interlock device! As for runaway nano turning into "graygoo" that’s already happened, starting about 200,000 years ago. WE are the graygoo.

    A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within . W. Durant

  20. Charles Long on August 14, 2020 at 2:55 pm

    The insane thing about SALT I and SALT II was that it limited the number of active missiles each side could have. That only set to the drawing table all the scientists and engineers to find a way to increase the number of bombs. They came up with a MIRV tipped missile, five, six, or seven bombs on each missile. That would not limit the number of bombs or the amount of destruction.

  21. Scott Castle's Channel on August 14, 2020 at 2:58 pm

    why say that the first strike referring to the Russians as "the soviet attack" this aired 13 years after the USSR collapsed????

    It’s funny watching this in 2020, we’re dealing with a pandemic that plunge the world into a global depression, the climate change situation is out of control. The record-breaking heat waves are freezes are breaking every year and this documentary is from 2005. Also, Siberia is experiencing 100°F

  27. Frank Marburger on August 14, 2020 at 3:03 pm

  32. Richard Barr on August 14, 2020 at 3:10 pm

    Look at covid 19

  33. M. O. on August 14, 2020 at 3:13 pm

    11:33 Those are B-83 nuclear weapons from the USAF. I worked with them when I was in the USAF in the early 90’s. Back then pictures of them were classified but obviously not anymore since there is video footage that is public now.

  34. e man on August 14, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    White men please calm down seriously

  35. Frank Marburger on August 14, 2020 at 3:17 pm

  36. Zachory Chapin on August 14, 2020 at 3:17 pm

  38. KeenCrafting on August 14, 2020 at 3:18 pm

    Since its 2020, glad we survived, or am I? 2020 has been horrendous!

    Fwiw: this planets weather systems are a cyclic nature. There have been many ice ages and many global warming situations! We cannot stop the cycles but can speed them up. What helps speed it up is called fossil fuels. Fuel from the dead carcasses of previous earth dwellers. At some point we will be those fossils! Think about that for a minute!

  39. Fantom on August 14, 2020 at 3:19 pm

    How do you know peak oil is a myth? Their scenario theorized $425 a barrel in 2019. Its 2020 and barrels were going for what $20?

  40. Jim Omalley on August 14, 2020 at 3:19 pm

  45. Frank Marburger on August 14, 2020 at 3:22 pm

    The problem is wind power solar power cost twice the cost of gasoline or gas powered generators including Cole because you can’t compete because you’re ripping people off and you are a joke hydrogen power cost more to produce then burning gasoline engine quit lying to the public

  46. Ronan Barthon on August 14, 2020 at 3:24 pm

    Man, the so called smart people ain’t so smart….

  47. Bryan Liggett on August 14, 2020 at 3:24 pm

  48. The_Other _Seto_Kaiba on August 14, 2020 at 3:25 pm

  49. henry nenjamin on August 14, 2020 at 3:26 pm

    As soon as i am done paying child support this will happen

  50. Frank Marburger on August 14, 2020 at 3:29 pm

    Come up with better solar panels and I will be right there. Instead of the companies ripping people off for the cost when you get it under control every American would love to have solar panels. Be competitive what you do is not competitive and it cost more then gas oil or coal. Guarantee you do it right everybody would be solar or wind oh, so companies quit trying to rip off the American people
