Experts Say

Eliminate Nuclear Weapons by Divesting From Them


March 20, 2018
By Robert F. Dodge

Our world and everything we care about is threatened every moment of every day by nuclear weapons, either by intent, accident, miss-calculation or cyber-attack. These weapons—though now illegal following the July 2017 U.N. “Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons,” adopted by 122 nations—continue to be modernized at an expected cost of $1.7 trillion over the next 30 years. The non-nuclear nations have declared enough and that they will no longer be bullied and held hostage by the nine nuclear nations. Now is the time to stop the insanity and divest of nuclear weapons just as apartheid was ultimately stopped by divestment in South Africa. If we want to abolish nuclear weapons, we must stop investing in them.
