The U.S. and other major powers recently boycotted U.N. negotiations for a treat banning nuclear weapons.
With the levels of distrust among nuclear powers seemingly growing by the day, banning such weapons does seem highly unlikely. Still, it’s important for people to think about nuclear weapons, the threats they pose and how the worldwide threat of nuclear devastation might be lessened.
The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons has published a pamphlet that covers the basics of the effort to outlaw such weapons in 2017. It’s a quick read, and well worth the time.
