“By far the single greatest danger facing humankind — in fact, all living beings on our planet — is the threat of nuclear destruction.” — Dalai Lama
Today, 29th of August, is the International Day against nuclear tests, as declared by the United Nations General Assembly on December 2009.
And for good reason. There are enough nuclear warheads in the world to destroy civilization many times over and destroy most life on earth. – That is someting we really do not need.
Read more facts and myths about nuclear weapons. Look also at the website of ICAN (The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons), it has a myriad of relevant information, also country by country.
Check also what e.g. David Pugliese of Ottawa Citizen writes about B61: upgrading that middle-aged US nuclear bomb can cost up to 10 billion USD (the budget of Finland is about 65 million USD).
Does nuclear bombs make us happier?
