Professors, physicians and activists call for anti-nuke action

HADLEY — A global political landscape destabilized by climate change would increase the risk of a nuclear war, activist Dr. Ira Helfand said at the “Climate Change and the Growing Risk of Nuclear War” symposium on Saturday.

More than 130 people attended the daylong event at the Hadley Farms conference center. It was sponsored by the local chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility, a national organization of physicians opposed to nuclear proliferation and environmental degradation.

The event included a series of lectures by doctors, academics and religious leaders outlining the risks of climate change and nuclear war.
