    The Increasing Peril from Nuclear Arms: And How Physicists Can Help Reduce the Threat

    With geopolitical and technological changes mostly driven by the nuclear weapons states, we are slipping towards a new arms race and deterioration of the multi-decade arms control regime. This talk will describe the current situation, feasible steps to reduce the nuclear threat, and a new project sponsored by the American Physical Society to engage physical scientists in advocacy for nuclear threat reduction.

    A short meeting will be held immediately after the colloquium for those interested in learning about, or joining, the APS Coalition.
