I used to be happy to see the Op-Ed by Shampa Biswas “The lesson of this moment: Abolish nuclear weapons” [March 24, Opinion].
I agree along with her arguments for the whole abolition of nuclear weapons — and her commentary that nuclear energy crops are, as she notes, “bombs ready to blow up.”
As Biswas factors out, Russia’s overt and implied threats of nuclear weapons use have interfered with a correct international response to its aggression towards Ukraine. It has been terrifying to ponder that in addition to to see lively sustained artillery hearth and energy cuts round nuclear energy crops in Ukraine.
All of the arguments for secure nuclear vitality fly out the window on the subject of battle. Human beings are just too accident-prone and aggressive to have the ability to deal with this expertise that may result in the deaths of tons of of thousands and thousands of individuals and widespread devastating environmental harm.
