A Nobel Peace Prize We Can All Live With

Here’s a Nobel Peace Prize we can all live with:
(Reuters) – “The Norwegian Nobel Committee, warning of a rising risk of nuclear war, awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday to a little-known [well, that depends upon the circles in which one circulates] international campaign group advocating for a ban on nuclear weapons. The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) describes itself as a coalition of grassroots non-government groups in more than 100 nations. It began in Australia and was officially launched in Vienna in 2007.”
  • ICAN’s website is here (and be sure to ‘like’ their FB page).
  • For readers who may not know of this, my bibliography for nuclear weapons is here.
  • The important Arms Control Law blog is here.
  • And Atomic Reporters is an independent, non-profit, incorporated in Canada at the end of 2012, operating as an officially recognised international NGO from Austria, providing substantive and non-partisan information to journalists about nuclear science and technology.
