Nuclear Weapons

Beyond Nuclear advocates for the elimination of all nuclear weapons and argues that removing them can only make us safer, not more vulnerable. The expansion of commercial nuclear power across the globe only increases the chance that more nuclear weapons will be built and is counterproductive to disarmament.

North Korea Nuclear Bomb Test May Have Killed Children in School Collapse

As reported by By in Newsweek.

This horrorific news is reminiscent of the book Killing Our Own, by Harvey Wasserman, Robert Alvarez, and Norman Solomon--although it was focused on radioactivity releases by the nuclear weapons and power industry, not earthquakes caused by nuclear test blasts.

Another book about the nuclear weapons complex in various countries harming their own domestic populations with radioactivity releases is Nuclear Wastelands. Dr. Arjun Makhijani, President of Institute for Energy and Environmental Research, is a co-author.
