Nuclear Weapons? No thanks!
Peter Henry, President, Seattle Substitutes Association
Nuclear weapons are in the news again – President Trump plans to withdraw the US from an important nuclear arms limitation treaty with Russia. This could well trigger another nuclear arms race. It’s a big deal, but the issue will probably fade from public consciousness in a few days or weeks – unless we keep it there.
Nuclear weapons did not go away. They are still capable of wiping out human civilization. The only other immediate threat on this scale is human-caused global warming. We need to focus and maintain attention on both these issues.
Last year the SEA joined the coalition Washington Against Nuclear Weapons as a supporting member. Just in time for the elections, the coalition is distributing a candidates’ survey on nuclear issues. Please take a few minutes to check out the candidates’ responses here: https://www.wpsr.org/candidate-survey1
And then contact the elected leader of your choice to tell them to work on eliminating nuclear weapons.
