Climate crisis, expanding nuclear arsenals, extreme inequality, and now a pandemic – the challenges confronting our species are beyond daunting. Yet with extreme threat and great loss come an opportunity to change priorities and construct a path toward a more sustainable and harmonious future. Our upcoming webinar shows how.
 
“These weapons threaten our very existence as a species. And so does the climate crisis. But if we eliminate nuclear weapons, we can convert an industry of death to an industry of life. We can shift massive amounts of money and scientific talent to green technologies we need to survive – and we can create millions of jobs.” – Timmon Wallis
 
So join us for an evening of practical hope. Warheads to Windmills: Wednesday, April 29 – 7:00 p.m.

WARHEADS TO WINDMILLS an exciting new initiative detailing how we can pay for a Green New Deal. Wallis, founder of NuclearBan.US identifies the three major crises threatening the planet today – the climate emergency, expanding nuclear arsenals, extreme inequity – and proposes one solution: redirect funds and technology for nukes to the development of green energy and green jobs.

Warheads to Windmills  ( http://www.nuclearban.us/w2w/ ) is a detailed analysis of what it will take to adequately address the climate crisis and where the needed funds, scientific and engineering expertise could come from: the nuclear weapons program. “It’s not an exaggeration to say that these weapons threaten our very existence as a species,” said Timmon Wallis, principal author of the report.  “And so does the climate crisis.  But if we eliminate nuclear weapons, we can convert an industry of death to an industry of life.  We can shift massive amounts of money and scientific talent to green technologies we need to survive – and we can create millions of jobs.  And if we stop pointing missiles at each other, we can start to build the international cooperation we’ll need to work together to solve the climate crisis.”
