The world as we now know and inhabit it is imperiled by both nuclear weapons and global warming. No country better illustrates the twin existential threats than the Marshall Islands. LCNP is on the legal team representing the Marshall Islands in its Nuclear Zero cases in the International Court of Justice. And with Foreign Minister Tony deBrum we examined the two threats and what to do about them at a September 20 Climate Convergence workshop held in connection with the Peoples Climate March and the UN Climate Summit.

Deadly Connections: Challenging Nuclear Weapons, Nuclear Power, and Climate Change

Workshop, September 20 2014

Nuclear weapons and climate change are the two existential threats that face humanity, and the military is one of the largest contributors to climate change. Part one of this workshop will consider the ways that climate change will intensify conflicts and war risks generated by a system based on competition among immense organizations and endless growth. It also will explore the role in the global economy of state-dependent high-tech enclaves, including the nuclear energy sector and the military-industrial complex. The second part of the workshop will provide perspectives from people working on a variety of initiatives from the local to the global aimed at finding ways to make progress when the politics in national capitals is locked up.
