The Political Compass, Wayne Brittenden, Dr. Ira Helfand

US physician, Dr. Ira Helfand,  has been a tireless campaigner for the abolition of nuclear weapons for over 40 years.

He plays a key role in two Nobel Peace Prize-winning organisations, and warns that the risk of nuclear confrontation, through miscalculation or sheer madness, is now far greater  than at the height of the Cold War. Paradoxically, the anti-nuclear movement is barely a shadow of its size a generation ago.

Wayne Brittenden talks with Dr. Halfand about the most likely potential nuclear conflicts, their implications for humanity and the huge task of creating mass global awareness . While climate change and the Corona virus are of rapid and grave public concern, the growing likelihood of a nuclear conflict, far more devastating than Hiroshima, is widely ignored.
