CND, alongside other peace groups in the XR Peace collective, was present at The Big One over the weekend, making the links between climate change and nuclear weapons.
Full report to follow!
The action was an opportunity to raise awareness of the climate emergency, to demand change and to highlight the crucial links between climate change and nuclear weapons – the twin existential threats that we face. The two issues are closely linked. The fallout of a nuclear war would have devastating effects on our eco-system and even a ‘small’ localised nuclear conflict would lead to crops failing in dozens of countries — devastating food supplies for more than one billion people. And a nuclear winter would dramatically alter the chemistry of the oceans, probably decimating coral reefs and other marine ecosystems. Find out more about CND’s For Peace and Planet campaign.
For the future of us all, the solution to climate change must involve global nuclear disarmament.
