[NukeWasteWNC] History today 07/07/2017 – 122 countries voted for nuclear ban

BIG NEWS TODAY—world is moving towards NUCLEAR-FREE on weapons!  This is the treaty the United Nations voted to adopt http://www.undocs.org/en/a/conf.229/2017/L.3/Rev.1

“The Convention on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons”  and here is the vote:

There will be a long process as nations decide (or not) to ratify this new agreement—don’t hold your breath on our fine nation adopting this—but let’s sing and dance and PARTY for a strong move in the world in the right direction!

HOWEVER—as Amory Lovins said —if you want to get rid of nuclear weapons, get rid of nuclear energy…every reactor is a nuclear weapons materials factory! SO, we have a clear mandate to proceed! DON’T NUKE THE CLIMATE!

The nations of the world used the impact of radiation on girls and women to move forward on this new agreement. See my OpEd and here: www.genderandradiation.org External gamma and neutron radiation…like nuke waste transport… and big contamination areas…and…LET’S STOP FISSION!
