The growing danger of nuclear war
and what we can do about it.
The danger of nuclear war between the US and North Korea, by intent or by accident, is a real and present danger. Millions of people would die, and global climatic effects would devastate the world. Positive actions can end this crisis and support the UN Treaty to Ban Nuclear Weapons.
Their audio-visual presentation will be followed by
a Q and A period.
When asked about the link between the Sustainable Living Series and nuclear disarmament, Mary-Wynne answered: ' There are two green things about nuclear disarmament: one is that there will be life on earth, and the second is that trillions of dollars will be freed up for other purposes if they stop manufacturing and modernizing their nuclear arsenals.
