Worse Than Nuclear Winter
The sky blacked out for ten years or more, no Sun and no moon for a decade.
Article neglects to mention a single super volcano could achieve this and has before many, many times in the past. Yellowstone has wrapped the planet in a black death shroud at least a half-dozen times.
The cold alone would be like the inside of a freezer for many years. Heat would have to come from simple sources like burning wood, coal and wastepaper.
I am really focused on this steam generation of electric power for this reason. It's the ultimate failsafe against everything. You burn something and you get light, power and warmth plus cogeneration of hot water for cooking and washing. Solar and wind are good backups but nothing beats a fire. There is nearly always something to burn lying around. You could probably survive 100 years burning old newspapers if you had to.
