The ongoing pandemic has shown us what indiscriminate worldwide destruction looks like.
A nuclear war would do infinitely more damage in a shorter time and recovery, if possible at all, would take years.

Russia says it’s created hypersonic weapons. Kim Jung Un refuses to give up his nuclear program. Iran is enriching uranium. The current Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) expires in February 2021.

Join a seasoned panel to discuss what the United States and others can do at this crucial point in history to reduce weapons and decrease the chances of a devastating nuclear war.
