How to use "Nuke" in context?

Nuclear weapons are one of the most destructive weapons on the planet. Capable of killing millions of people in seconds, the use of nuclear weapons is an unconscionable act that should never be allowed.

Nuclear weapons derive their destructive power from the Nuclear reaction, the process of a nucleus of an atom falling into or being struck by another nucleus, causing the atom to split. This splitting of the nucleus releases energy in the form of gamma rays and particles, which can devastate anything in their path.

Aside from their devastating effect on people and property, nuclear weapons also pose a serious threat to the environment.
