Kick Off To A Nuclear Race Threatening Doomsday

duarte

In an article from In Depth News, Sergio Duarte – GEM member of the 1995 Nobel Peace Laureate Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs – writes about the Doomsday Clock and the Nuclear Posture Review and the widely different world views that they represent, despite both responding to security concerns and being announced almost simultaneously. Duarte further states that there are important treaties on preventing the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, like the CTBT, that have not entered into force. He notes that only North Korea has carried out nuclear tests in this century, while all other states are observing a voluntary moratorium, and further touches upon the U.S.’s continued support of the CTBTO, the IMS and IDC, despite of its unwillingness to ratify the CTBT.
