Dear CCI Friends,
Please educate yourself with this 9-minute TED X Talk. It is a very topical subject these days since our CDC will soon be sharing information with the public about how Americans can survive a nuclear blast. Physicists and physicians tell us a different story.
Dr. Ira Helfund does a magnificent job of describing the reality of nuclear weapons in the following link:
It has become fashionable for politicians to discuss nuclear war as though it’s survivable. This is extremely dangerous.
Weapons built today are sometimes 40 times more powerful than those exploded in Hiroshima and Nagasaki––which left generations of damage. In today’s world there would never be one bomb dropped! There would be thousands dropped in different places. The accumulated atmospheric debris would shortly occlude the sun’s rays––plants and food sources would die. The living would envy the dead.
Thank you for becoming an educator! Send to your friends, colleagues and families.
Let your public officials, your senators, the President know how you feel about such cavalier attitudes toward nuclear weapons.
