Former Pentagon chief warns of nuclear catastrophe
We received this invitation from our friends at the Global Security Institute:
Dr. William J. Perry to be Honored With the Cranston Peace Prize at Stanford Event
Please join us next week via Zoom when the Global Security Institute (GSI) has the honor to present former Secretary of Defense of the United States, Dr. William J. Perry, with the Alan Cranston Peace Award at Stanford University in an event co-sponsored by GSI and the Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC).
Many scholars and policy-makers have stated that the war in Ukraine, the spread of nuclear weapons to new states, and the lack of arms control agreements outside of the New Start treaty make the world extremely dangerous. Indeed, the Doomsday Clock of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists currently stands at 100 seconds to midnight, the closest to doomsday since the clock was invented in 1947. Is this estimate true, and, if so, what can the leaders and people of the world do to reduce the risks?
