Description: Two decades after the end of the Cold War, more than 17,000 nuclear weapons remain in the world. The usage of nuclear weapons would affect us all in ways we can begin to imagine. While it is unlikely that the U.S. and Russia would use their arsenals, nuclear powers like India and Pakistan pose a more likely threat, even if they possess less than .5% of the world’s nuclear arsenal. Climate researchers have concluded that the soot produced by a limited nuclear war in Asia would impact crop production as far away as America’s breadbasket. The resulting "nuclear famine" would last a decade and put up to 2 billion people at risk of starvation. Last year, 128 national governments sent delegations to the Oslo conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons, but the United States government was conspicuously absent. Why? This February, Mexico is hosting the second such conference in Nayarit, Mexico. Please direct the President and State Department to send an official U.S. delegation to this important conference. The world is asking for a faster reduction in nuclear weapons. It is time for the United States to lead. Ban the Bomb!
