How can you escape from Hydrogen bomb attacks, or global nuclear conflicts between the US and Russia - If, and hopefully Not When - it strikes?

First of all, will there be a war? The Arms Control Association says: "The United States and Russia still deploy more than 1,500 strategic warheads on several hundred bombers and missiles - far more than necessary to deter nuclear attack - and they are modernizing their nuclear delivery systems."

Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus warned that the conflict in Syria might unleash a nuclear war between the Big Two: "If this proxy war continued, after this, let me be clear, America and Russia will come to a point of war," Anadolu warns.

Preparations to avert disaster are already under way. Some are creating apocalypse-proof underground bunkers, which is accessible only to the super-rich. The demand for bomb-proof bunkers in the market has shot up by 700% compared to 2014.

"Owners hope that bunkers - kitted out with Li-Ion power cells and food which lasts 25 years - will enable them to be the new Adam and Eve, once the fallout dust settles," says metro.

If you are not among the super-rich, you can head towards safer countries. Participants in Quora say that the best country to duck for cover is New Zealand.

It is far away and geographically isolated. Top Quora writer Peter Baskerville says: "It is probably the nearest habitable place that is as far removed from the 'action' as possible and is a land currently blessed with fertile soils, pure water and a decent group of people to survive with."

The second to follow the list is Perth in Australia, which is one of the remotest cities on Earth. It is also "non-nuclear" among all the nations in the world.

The third on the list is French Polynesia, advises Ted Thed: "The chain of islands (400+) sits in a vortex of both wind and ocean currents that originate from the Antarctic area. While the entire southern hemisphere is largely target-free, Antarctica is the only continent you can guarantee won't be targeted in some future conflict."

The list includes Brazil due to its bountiful natural resources and Argentina and Chile due to their location in the southern hemisphere and the clean environment.

In case of that terrifying World War III, the worst places you could choose to live in would be western countries and the northern hemisphere. With hydrogen bombs demolishing civilian buildings within a 10-mile radius, experts from Physics and Nuclear Arms Today calculate that a 20-megaton weapon might explode 3.3 miles above the ground.

The best bet would be to prepare for not keeping yourself safe during a nuclear war, but avoiding a war from breaking out, in the first place.
