Nuclear Proliferation

Nuclear power was the failed answer to the horrors of the atomic bomb - the so-called "Peaceful Atom." However, the two technologies are inextricably linked.

Contained expansion of nuclear power across the globe only increases the chances of nuclear weapons development and is counterproductive to disarmament.
