Nuclear Weapons


Science for Peace began in the 1980s as a group of scientists concerned about the danger of nuclear war. This focus continues through the nuclear weapons working group, educating the public and decision-makers about the catastrophic humanitarian effects of nuclear warfare and promoting nuclear disarmament.

"An understanding of what nuclear weapons do invalidates all arguments for their continued possession and requires that they urgently be prohibited and eliminated." - Dr. Tilman Ruff
