The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

TODAY. Nuclear war – it’s a manly thing

I was reminded of this fact today, as I read an article in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. An excellent article, by three very good academics – all men, understandably, as we all realise that they are the most expert on these matters.

I was struck by this line, a fair way down in the article – “Women are far less likely than men to support UK possession of nuclear weapons (28 percent of women, compared with 53 percent of men). “

It was nice of them to mention women’s opinions. That doesn’t happen often , but whenever it does, there is this striking difference – with women not at all keen on nuclear weapons and nuclear war.

The sad reality is that when you look at the people making the decisions on nuclear weapons, and on international relations – they’re pretty much always men. Some of these men are all dolled up in pretty military uniforms and colours, with ribbons, and medals – all looking so important.

Very important men – making very silly decisions.

  1. There is so much death in ukraine its hard to sleep. There is death and fear with guns and anger. Once the killing start rivers of blood flow. Children are not safe. No one is safe

  2. It would be a humanly thing, to riseup and end it. There will probably be, a tactical nuke detonation. This will lead to nuclear war, within a year. It will cause all hi level waste to burn. It will cause nuclear reactor explosions. Nothing will survive
