Nuclear war/nuclear winter[edit]

So, apparently we need to discuss this. From the page:

  • According to Turanga Leela in "Xmas Story", global warming was cancelled out by nuclear winter. Which exact nuclear winter we are talking about is unknown, but it may lead to the assumption that some nuclear war may have had erupted...
  • ...in "The Luck of the Fryrish" Leela states that "you guys never had a single nuclear war"

We agree that nuclear winter happened, and that nuclear war is a likely cause, however meaning of the quote from Fryrish seems to be disputed.

The word "although" before that point would imply the quote indicates there has been no nuclear war, however I believe the implication of the quote is that while "you guys", i.e. the people of Fry's time, "never had a single nuclear war" others since then had, hence we would use the word "as" or rephrase that part entirely. - Quolnok 03:12, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

The point I am trying to make is that according to "Crimes of the Hot", global warming was cancelled out by giant ice cubes, but not nuclear winter.
However, I will admit it is possible that a nuclear war did happen which cooled the Earth further -- perhaps before Farnsworth started developing the new types of robots -- but was not the "final solution" to the problem. If anything, I believe the first paragraph needs a rephrasing. --SvipTalk 10:44, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, the point of contention here is the bit added by Futurama Freak1, and as it isn't the solution anyway perhaps it can be omitted. I'm mainly trying to draw his attention as he edited the page further after this was posted and didn't respond. - Quolnok 10:58, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Sorry about that as I understand little of how wikis work beyond just adding or editing something. Futurama Freak1 12:59, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
