Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Nuclear destruction ‘one impulsive tantrum away,’ Nobel winners warn

How many countries have these destructive nuclear weapons? The members of the United Nations Security Council, also known as the Permanent Five, or P5, China, France, Russia, the UK, and the US are all exempted from the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, commonly known as the Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT because they had built and tested a nuclear explosive device before the treaty was signed. There are four other states are known to possess nuclear weapons: India, Pakistan, Israel, and North Korea.

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, or ICAN, was awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace prize for its role in pushing for the NPT. Founded in 2007, ICAN is a non-profit organization that includes 468 partner organizations in 101 countries.

One campaigner, who was one of the victims of Hiroshima, said, “We must not tolerate this insanity any longer.” The executive director of the organization also said that nuclear war had been avoided not through prudent leadership but through good fortune.

While tensions mount in Korean Peninsula, no considerable action has been taken to reduce or eliminate these weapons of mass destruction. Will their messages be heard by the leaders of those nuclear-powered nations?

Enjoy reading the text, watching the video and listening to the song for peace, and think which crisis is more imminent for the world, nuclear weapons or global warming.
