The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Nuclear weapons, path to global suicide – theme for August 2016

“In the end, there beckons, more and more clearly, general annihilation” – Albert Einstein 1945

Hiroshima-drawingToday, I read an article about how superior we are to other species. Really, I thought?  What other species is poisoning the planet’s air, land and water, with its carbon and chemical pollution? And we are SO intelligent compared to other species: we can write, and build computers, and fly into space!

And what other species delights in enriching a few greedy individuals by paying them to build wonderful nuclear bombs that can destroy ALL the species on the planet, as well as their own? How clever is that?

Hiroshima-drawing-1And if the weapons industries are criticised, why – the reasoning is – they provide JOBS. What sort of jobs, particularly in the nuclear weapons area?  Jobs that have already killed 33,480 workers due to ionising radiation. And that’s just in America alone.

Meanwhile – thousands of clean, positive jobs could be provided by using the obscene amounts of tax-payers’ money that go into buying nuclear, and other weapons.

And yet, and yet, our species IS capable of learning – even the sociopathic types of people that rise to leadership positions can learn, as well as the billions of normal humans who want peace and a humanitarian society.
