Warheads to Windmills: Preventing Climate Catastrophe and Nuclear War

Warheads to Windmills: Preventing Climate Catastrophe and Nuclear War

We are very proud of receiving Tim Wallis at Friends House for the launch of his newest book, "Warheads to Windmills: Preventing Climate Catastrophe and Nuclear War."

 

'To survive the climate crisis, we need money, brainpower and infrastructure for the most effective climate solutions. Those resources are currently being squandered by the nuclear weapons industry. We'll also need the world's biggest greenhouse gas emitters to stop pointing nuclear missiles at each other and start building unprecedented global cooperation. Can we “feed two birds with one scone" by converting assets from nuclear weapons of mass extinction to evidence-based climate solutions?

There are already excellent pathways to global nuclear disarmament. There are already excellent alternatives to burning fossil fuels. The obstacles are misinformation, propaganda, and politicians corrupted by profiteering corporations. This book is a tool kit for campaigners on both issues to work together on treaties, divestment, boycotts, lobbying, legislation, education, conversion and more. It debunks myths, frauds, and distractions. It's full of well-documented facts and figures, tools and strategies, personal and political inspiration for swift, decisive action.'
