Climate Change and Nuclear War: What We Can Do About the Twin Existential Threats

January 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The webinar will focus on  how climate change increases the danger of nuclear war and how a nuclear war would cause further catastrophic climate disruption. This case study of South Asia will show the way the twin existential threats of climate and nuclear risks interact in a way that threatens us all. Solutions such as the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) and the Green New Deal that enable us to confront the threats will also be addressed.

A panel of the three experts will discuss some solutions followed by Questions and Answers.
