Environment Friendly Nukes

Concerned for the health of people being killed by nuclear bombs and the well-being of the environment, the EPA has ordered new, less-toxic, rockets to be installed on ICBMs.
So at least, you can be sure that you’ll die healthy and in a clean environment when nukes start flying around.

“In order to comply with EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) regulations, and at a cost of about $5.2 million per ICBM, the rocket motors on 500 Minuteman III missiles will be replaced with new ones. These rockets will emit less toxic chemicals when used.”

“EPA regulations do not apply in foreign countries, so no changes are being made to reduce the harmful environmental effects of the nuclear warheads.”
