WORLDWIDE PEACE GROUPS URGE NUCLEAR WEAPONS STATES TO TAKE NUCLEAR WEAPONS OFF ALERT
 

Abolition 2000, the global umbrella group of over 2000 peace and nuclear disarmament groups worldwide who seek the abolition of nuclear weapons, has written to the heads of every country that has a nuclear weapons capability, urging them to move to as low an operational status for those nuclear weapon systems as possible as a first step to the complete elimination of nuclear weapons and the implementation of a global nuclear weapons convention that would provide a legal framework permanently outlawing nuclear weapons.

REMARKS TO CNDP CONGRESS DELHI 10 DEC 2010

India and Global Nuclear Disarmament

First of all let me acknowledge what an honour and a privilege it is to share a platform with Mani Shankar Aiyar, Sukla, and Prof. Achin Vanaik, Much of what I have to say directly concerns Mani, and his creation, the Rajiv Gandhi Peace Plan.

When that plan appeared in 1988 it was perhaps, a year or two too early. However, in stating that the large-scale use of nuclear weapons would mean in effect not just the destruction of civilisation but possibly of the human species, I believe the Rajiv Gandhi Peace Plan said what needed to be said. These remain the stakes for which the nuclear disarmament game is to be played even now. The catastrophic global climatic effects of large-scale and even of subcontinental, nuclear weapons use, especially when nuclear weapons are used for their 'default function', namely the destruction of cities, needs to be brought to public attention and to the political spotlight over and over again. The recent (2006) work by Toon and Robock, essentially a recalculation and re-run of the 'nuclear winter' model with the most up to date NASA atmospheric models, painstakingly peer-reviewed and published in the most reputable physics and climate science journals, simply proves that Rajiv's remarks to the General Assembly all those years ago were right on the mark - and still are.
