Pockets Of Nuclear Sanity: A Proposal For Abolishing Nuclear Weapons
"The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking, and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe." Albert Einstein

Dr. Martin Hellman, Professor Emeritus at Stanford, has worked to eliminate the threat of nuclear catastrophe for many years. He will describe his simple, but profoundly important and useable plan for bringing critical awareness of this ultimate and ever-present danger to a world that has largely put it out of its mind.

Sponsored by The Women's International League For Peace and Freedom

Martin Hellman is Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. While best known for his invention of public key cryptography (the technology that protects your credit card transactions on the Internet), his primary interest for over twenty-five years has been how fallible human beings can survive while possessing nuclear weapons. In 1987s, he and Anatoly Gromyko co-edited "Breakthrough: Emerging New Thinking" which won an endorsement from Mikhail Gorbachev. His many honors include election to the National Academy of Engineering and three outstanding teaching awards from minority student organizations.
