Nuclear Famine: A Billion People at Risk

June 21, 2013
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Time: 6:00 pm
Location: Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia, 1906 Rittenhouse Square

PSR Executive Director Catherine Thomasson, MD leads a training session on the effects of nuclear war.

Nuclear weapons are a constant threat to our survival globally. There is no remedy to the humanitarian catastrophe even a single nuclear weapon would create. Learn about PSR's new report showing the impact of 100 nuclear weapons on grain crop production worldwide. The U.S. public has forgotten this threat and instead a $100 billion "renovation" of our nuclear weapons arsenal is planned. It is time for nuclear weapons abolition.
