The Trump administration needs to follow in the footsteps of Reagan and Gorbachev and reject the dangerous notion that nuclear weapons enhance our national security. Instead, it should base its policy instead on and understanding that these weapons are, in fact, the greatest threat to our national survival. Even a “limited” nuclear war would put 2 billion lives at risk because of disruptions to the climate.
The US cannot disarm unilaterally, but it can join and provide leadership to the international movement for a treaty to prohibit these weapons. The world desperately needs a leader with vision and courage. Please contact the President-elect and your Senator/ Representative.
