The Double Threat of Nuclear Weapons and Climate Change

No comments

Nuclear weapons and climate change are two of the greatest threats facing the world. With nearly 14,000 nuclear weapons, nine nuclear-armed states possess the capacity to destroy humanity and devastate the environment through war. Climate change threatens all life and responding to it involves shifting priorities and resources away from militaries and war, toward just and sustainable peace.

In anticipation of the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) we have prepared a series of infographics and short videos highlighting the relationship between the threat of nuclear weapons and the threat of climate change. Please share widely within your networks, especially as we look to both COP26 and the upcoming review of the United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

What do nukes have to do with climate change?
