Eliminate land-based missiles (ICBMs) from the nuclear arsenal.

March 25, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Since the 1950s the U.S. has spent huge amounts of our tax dollars building and maintaining land-based nuclear missiles in a number of U.S. states in the northern and central parts of our nation.  These Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) are now widely regarded as obsolete and unnecessary.  But they persist as one “leg” of the U.S.’s nuclear “triad,” along with airplanes that can drop nuclear bombs and submarines (such as the Trident) that can launch nuclear warhead-tipped missiles from oceans. Here is some information about the new movement to abolish the ICBMs:   The U.S. government plans to REPLACE some […]

Let’s urge President Biden to take smart actions to reduce nuclear war dangers

March 24, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Let’s make sure President Biden Sees and understands the crisis of nuclear weapons.  This article suggests how he can keep the world safe from nuclear annihilation. https://www.thenation.com/article/politics/biden-cant-lose-sight-of-the-nuclear-crisis/?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily%2001.20.2021&utm_content=B&utm_term=daily   Here is what President Biden should do about nuclear weapons in his first 100 days: One of the best informed non-profit organizations working to prevent nuclear war — the Arms Control Association, www.armscontrol.org — conducted an online event about what President Biden should do about nuclear weapons during his first 100 days.  I participated in this and am happy to see that the ACA recorded it and posted it to their website.  […]

PREVENT the U.S. from spending $100 BILLION on more than 600 new nuclear missiles!

Nuclear Weapons: History, Science and the Public: TV program and more information

March 15, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The April 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series helps you understand how nuclear weapons came into existence – and the science behind them – and the public’s reactions to learning about the hard realities. From ancient times, people have wondered how the natural world works.  People have also wondered how they could use the power of the natural world to kill their enemies.  Modern science and engineering allowed people to increase their knowledge – and increase their ability to kill. Since the 1940s nuclear weapons have been part of our reality.  Most people try to avoid thinking about […]

Take these urgent actions in early March 2021

March 8, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Most of us receive many e-mails urging us to take online actions to tell a governmental or business entity what to do. These are especially urgent now in early March 2021 about several different issues.   #1: Tell Congress to pass a special tax on extremely rich people. Senator Elizabeth Warren and Representative Pramila Jayapal just announced their bold plan to pass a wealth tax. They’re going to need our help to pass it. Billionaires made more than $900 billion during the pandemic. Warren’s plan would create a two percent tax on assets over $50 million dollars, which would generate $2.75 […]

URGENT (late Feb. 2021) ONLINE ACTIONS for these issues

February 23, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Most of us receive many e-mails urging us to take online actions to tell a governmental or business entity what to do. These are especially urgent now in late February 2021 about several different issues.   Urge Biden to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal: The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA, commonly known as the “Iran nuclear deal:) was working well until Trump pulled the U.S. out of it and escalated his bullying against Iran — including escalating threats of war against Iran.  Instead of getting “leverage” to force Iran to yield to Trump’s demands, Trump’s scheme backfired.  The Iranian […]

The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons is a POWERFUL step toward PEACE!

January 30, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The February 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series provides you with a powerful, inspiring, exciting worldwide campaign that is already making powerful progress toward abolishing nuclear weapons. American politicians and American news media have grossly failed to inform the American people about the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.  The United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly approved it in July 2017.  Already, 51 nations have ratified the Treaty, and we expect many more during 2021 and beyond.  The Treaty went into effect on January 22, 2021 for the nations that have ratified it. During this TV interview Joanne […]

Biden should take these smart actions toward nuclear disarmament in his first 100 days

January 19, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Trump radically escalated the dangers of nuclear war. Biden can reduce those dangers IF WE URGE BIDEN TO TAKE SMART ACTIONS.   This morning I was one of more than 400 persons who participated in a worldwide Zoom meeting conducted by the Arms Control Association (www.armscontrol.org).  They titled this event, “Nuclear Challenges for the Biden Administration in the First 100 Days.” They efficiently presented a lot of information from several experts.  They recorded the Zoom event and will post it to their website reasonably soon. Recently the Arms Control Association presented their new report, which was titled  he speakers will […]
