I fear that we might all be like the "walking ghosts" of Hiroshima -- having survived the initial attack, we are alive only by virtue of a ghoulish time lag between the onset of the nuclear period and the full realization of its horrific consequences.
Have you seen the new documentary Countdown to Zero? If not, get thee to a cinema post haste. You will see remarkable footage of one of the most interesting characters of the 20th century, J. Robert Oppenheimer.
My hope is that my new movie Countdown to Zero will not only make people aware of the threat of nuclear weapons, but will also help create the political will necessary to ensure that the Senate ratifies the New START treaty.
