Human racial regression

An indefinite period of human regression could result from the gradual collapse of earth life support systems (caused by population increase, exhaustion of resources and environmental breakdown), accompanied by political chaos. The same eventuality might result from another global war, fought with either strategic or tactical nuclear weapons or other means of mass destruction. In the case of nuclear warfare, radiation could cause genetic deformations reducing societies to the animal level.
