Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $3,000,000 over three years to Rutgers University to support research conducted by Professors Alan Robock and Owen Brian Toon on the potential climatological and subsequent ecological and social effects of large nuclear conflicts.

This follows our March 2017 support and falls within our focus area of global catastrophic risks.
