Our ozone layer is made up of tons of O3 molecules bound together to protect us from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Without our ozone layer, life on Earth would be impossible. Here is a sneak preview of what happens if Earth’s atmosphere were suddenly inundated by smoke and debris from an earthquake, a volcano, or a nuclear war—even if we “won.” Our history shows that we have had multiple major volcanic eruptions that have led to several “dark” periods where sunlight had trouble reaching Earth. But the difference between that and the smoke a nuclear war injects into the atmosphere is chemically different. That’s why a nuclear war is much more harmful to the ozone layer.
Caleb Young, an Einstein-educated physicist and chief science officer for the CIA, is introduced to William Forde at the DOJ building at 950 Pennsylvania Avenue in early December 1963. Nicholas Katzenbach has appointed Forde to do a deep dive into what Caleb knows about secret CIA ops and the Kennedy assassination. He thinks Caleb has passed secrets about US subs to the Soviets when he was at several Pugwash Peace Conferences.

The headquarters for the US ABM system is in Colorado Springs, CO. That’s where intercepts of ballistic and hyper-glide missiles by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) would be attempted. The US has several ballistic phase intercept weapons that are secretly located in Mongolia.
