In 1962 the USA had 6,300 Megatons worth of H-bombs, and the USSR had about
3000.  The Hiroshima bomb had a yield of about .01 megatons and it killed
at least 100,000 people. Today all the world's nuclear weapons stockpiles
combined equal to about 5000 Megatons, that dog shit still smells but only
5/9 as bad so things have improved, although I must admit that in 1962
neither Kennedy nor Khrushchev was as stupid or ignorant as Donald Trump.
