Reversing the Path to



     The Human race is on a path to self-destruction by both man-made climate disasters and nuclear war. The world needs an about-face from the direction it is headed – death by global warming, or nuclear winter resulting from nuclear war.

      The signs of climate disasters are becoming increasingly visible. Rising global temperatures, fires, droughts, intense storms, flooding, etc. Signs of the increasing risk of nuclear war are not as visible, and to most nuclear winter remains unknown. International tensions could quickly escalate to nuclear war by accident or design. A nuclear war, beyond the staggering number of immediate deaths from cities destroyed, would put so much debris in the atmosphere blocking sunlight causing temperatures to plummet leading to global crop failures and starvation.

      Today, the U.S. spends $768 Billion annually on its war machine. That’s more than the next 11 top nations combined, including China and Russia. More than 50 years ago, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. said: “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.” Without question, the US is on spiritual life support due to its addiction to war. There is an urgent call to shift spending from war and the nuclear weapons industry to instead support public health, climate stabilization, and meeting human needs.    

     Nine nations now possess nuclear weapons: the United States, Russia, France, China, the United Kingdom, Pakistan, India, Israel, and North Korea. One year ago, on January 22, 2021, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) entered into force. The Treaty specifically prohibits State Parties from developing, testing, producing, manufacturing, acquiring, possessing, deploying, using, or threatening to use nuclear weapons, and from assisting or encouraging such acts. The US and the other 8 countries that possess nuclear weapons are now officially “The Outlaw States.”

     Nuclear Weapons Are Now Illegal Under International Law!
