Start SALT Again?
The Trinity test in 1945 saw the first atomic bomb explosion. In 2020 we commemorated Trinity’s 75th anniversary in July 2020 and then Honduras became the 50th state to ratify the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in October 2020. This ensured that the Treaty became part of international law in January 2021. Its a great time to revive activity for better nuclear weapons control to prevent MADness ... and maybe save cUSD2 trillion!
