July 16. 1945 the first nuclear explosion sets the atmosphere of New Mexico on fire.

July 16. 1945 the first nuclear explosion sets the atmosphere of New Mexico on fire. It eats a states worth of oxygen, causing a hurricane winds as the air rushes back in. Oxygen around the world is noticeably lowered.
It's theorized that a 1 megaton nuke would destroy half the worlds atmosphere, ending life.

Would there still be a rush to build nukes?

      If you can't use a nuke without very directly (i.e. not as a result of retaliatory strikes) ruining your own country, they cease to be of much value and become extremely unpopular to the public.

    it would be an arms race between the swiss and the bolivians to lower the earths oxygen levels so they can descend from their mountain dwellings and take over

      I for one embrace the mountain folk era and TLD (total lowlander destruction). Me celebrating the atomic destruction of the Dutch:

          Coloradoans were all killed by the spooky Nazi mole people living under the Denver airport.

    It just turned into CO2. The oxygen would have returned to normal by the next year

      It would have been nitrogen oxides, all the carbon in the air is already carbon dioxide.

    No. Basic bitcb nukes would be so powerful, that there would be a race to build them because there would be nobody to race with - a dozen well placed hurricane-nukes would wipe out soviet troop concentration areas, population centers and industrial hubs. Next year the same thing would happen to Beijing.
    We would live in a better times.

    I have a theory that all universes where all the fun sci-fi stuff like time-travel, warp, magic, anomalies and shit exist got destroyed the moment the first nuke detonated. Remember that probability curve of all Earth burning in the chain reaction? Well that probability was never 0. What if in the universes with slightly different laws of physics Earth is no more and that's the reason why no parallel universes had contacted us

      after the detonation of the first soviet nuke, all logical timelines led to nuclear armageddon. so the only timelines available to live in are moronic ones where logic has since disappeared.

    this would be less than the oxygen lost to holes in the ozone layer, which is usually estimated around 4-5% last i checked. it would be accepted. the only difference is that the norms of the time would dictate denying the impact, rather than dismissing it as unimportant. not because of environmentalism, but because admitting to the effect would imply that the US govt willfully does evil deeds.

        atmospheric escape dumps O2 every day. O3 depletion helps to enable this, especially around the poles.

    What the literal frick are you on about? The US and Russia have already detonated test nukes in excess of 1 megaton. Czar Bomba was supposed to be 100 megaton but only detonated with the force of about 50 megaton.

    Yes, it would make MAD easier and be an ironclad guarantee of any nation's sovereignty. Maybe, if they were feeling merciful, nuclear-capable countries would have a range of carefully calibrated nukes so that countries of varying size can be deleted without excessive collateral damage.
