Last Night Lower Bucks CFPA Quarterly Potluck Supper – Ward Wilson spoke about the US Nuclear Weapons arsenal
We had a great quarterly meeting last night with a Pot Luck dinner (my favorite!).
Ward Wilson spoke about the arsenal of nuclear weapons that the U.S. keeps on high alert and how much it costs to maintain them. He discussed H.R. 3974 The Smarter Approach to Nuclear Expenditures (SANE) and our efforts to get Congressman Fitzpatrick to cosponsor this bill.
Wilson is a prize-winning scholar who has spoken widely, including at: the House of Commons in Great Britain, Princeton University, Stanford University, the United Nations, the Naval War College, the University of Chicago, Georgetown University, the Norwegian Defense Studies Institute, Los Alamos, the Institute for Security Studies in South Africa, the International Committee of the Red Cross, Aberystwyth University in Wales, Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Stimson Center, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy, as well as others.
Given the extent to which we rely on nuclear weapons to preserve the peace, these new findings raise troubling questions.
“Wilson . . . is well on his way to deconstructing the most fundamental beliefs
about nuclear weapons.”
— Stephen Schwartz, editor, Nonproliferation Review
