Correlation Between Nukes and Happiness

My nation has been around for almost two years now, and this is my first time posting on the boards. I purchased two nuclear missiles well over a year ago, and never used them. I was wondering if there is a correlation between nuclear weapons and population happiness. Does the ownership of nuclear weapons decrease population happiness? Thanks.

0.4 happiness actually. But I don't know how bad nukes are for your environment...

Ah well I was 20 cents off then if your basing 1 happiness = $2 which obviously isnt always the case.

Anyway for every -1 to the enviroment from uranium, (So trading it and having nukes giving -2) your losing $0.80 or in the case of having both effects $1.60. Which you prob make up for in your trades anyway.

Using uranium for nukes also prevents you from the 7.50 cents bonus to economy. Uranium does have a -1 happiness ontop of the negative economy effects.
Uranium – Reduces infrastructure upkeep cost -3%. Allow nations to develop nuclear weapons only if that nations government preference supports nuclear weapons. If a nations government preference favors nuclear technology for the use of nuclear power plants but does not support nuclear weapons then the nation will receive +$3.00 per citizen and +$0.15 for every level of tech purchased up to level 30 but loses -1 population happiness. If a nation owns nuclear weapons but does not have uranium the cost to maintain nukes is doubled.

The way I read it is that the -1 happiness is only if you are using it for power. The -1 happiness doesn't exist if you are buying nukes.

Yep I tested it out and going to the option to buy nukes I gained the 1 happiness back. But the 7.50 - 2.00 is 5.50 you are loosing. Which gives me a lot of money. I can buy and launch nukes as I need of course that doesn't help if multiple nations attack. But just gotta hope others can join in and buy a nuke and launch one on the others. Of course now SDI even makes it harder for a nuke to work.
