#1. Extending social and economic development throughout the world and eliminating nuclear weapons from military arsenals are two fundamental prerequisites to replacing the culture of war with a culture of peace, and building true security for all the world's people. - Author: Douglas Roche
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Douglas Roche
#2. Nuclear disarmament is the only sane path to a safer world. - Author: Ban Ki-moon
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#3. Nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation are not utopian ideals. They are critical to global peace and security. - Author: Ban Ki-moon
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#4. And, by the way, how come all the people who were so in favor of unilateral nuclear disarmament are so opposed to unilateral protection against nukes? - Author: P. J. O'Rourke
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#5. Do not hide behind utopian logic which says that until we have the perfect security environment, nuclear disarmament cannot proceed. This is old-think. This is the mentality of the Cold War era. We must face the realities of the 21st century. The Conference on Disarmament can be a driving force for building a safer world and a better future. - Author: Ban Ki-moon
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#6. Nuclear weapons are the scourge of the earth; to mine for them, manufacture them, deploy them, use them, is a curse against God, the human family, and the earth itself. - Author: Philip Berrigan
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Philip Berrigan
#7. The time has come for those nations that rely on the force of nuclear armaments to respectfully heed the voices of peace-loving people, not least the atomic bomb survivors, to strive in good faith for nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation, and to advance towards the complete abolishment of all such weapons. - Author: Iccho Itoh
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Iccho Itoh
#8. Nuclear disarmament is one of the greatest legacies we can pass on to future generations. - Author: Ban Ki-moon
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#9. The New START accord cuts the strategic nuclear arsenals on each side to 1,550 warheads. Can any of its critics make a case that our security would be imperiled if, the very next day, Obama and Medvedev made moves to take the levels down to 1,000 - then to 500?
If so, come show us the math. If not, it may be time to stop making arms control so politically complicated - time to stop letting arms control get in the way of disarmament. - Author: Fred Kaplan
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Fred Kaplan
#10. Today we are rightly in an era of disarmament and dismantlement of nuclear weapons. But in some countries nuclear weapons development still continues. Whether and when the various Nations of the World can agree to stop this is uncertain. But individual scientists can still influence this process by withholding their skills. - Author: Hans Bethe
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Hans Bethe
#11. Some might complain that nuclear disarmament is little more than a dream. But that ignores the very tangible benefits disarmament would bring for all humankind. Its success would strengthen international peace and security. It would free up vast and much-needed resources for social and economic development. It would advance the rule of law. - Author: Ban Ki-moon
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#12. There's a very simple reason for focusing on the nuclear issue. Many, many issues are of supreme importance in one way or another, but if we blow ourselves up with nuclear weapons, no other issue is really going to matter. Quite possibly there would be no other human beings left to be concerned about anything else. - Author: Alan Cranston
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Alan Cranston

...Think Bond girl - you're incredibly smart in the one specific area that just so happens to help the protagonist in this one very specific instant of the plot. "Give me that," you'll say, snatching the hieroglyph from the hero's hand. "I have two PhDs in cryptozoological translation." You'll shove the hero aside from the beeping machine. "I'm NASA's top-ranking expert in nuclear disarmament techniques." Does it make sense? No, but who cares? You are very, very pretty. And smart, definitely smart because even though you look like a supermodel and wear very sexy clothing and a full face of makeup, you are also wearing glasses. Sure, twenty-four looks a little young to have three PhDs but they're pretty sure making you smart in whatever will move the plot forward means this movie is feminist. You will either end up running away with the hero, or you will die. Apologies. - Author: Dana Schwartz
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Dana Schwartz
#14. To adopt nuclear disarmament would be akin to behaving like a virgin in a brothel. - Author: David Penhaligon
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by David Penhaligon
#15. The city of Hiroshima stands as more than a monument to massive death and destruction. It stands as a living testament to the necessity for progress toward nuclear disarmament. - Author: Edward Kennedy
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Edward Kennedy
#16. I hear very little from evangelicals about the impact of gun proliferation on violent crime, much less an issue like nuclear disarmament. I hear almost nothing about health care for the poor and protecting widows and orphans, both biblical mandates, and scant mention of the thirteen million children who die worldwide from malnutrition in a year. I hear scornful dismissal of concerns about global warming, an issue viewed seriously by the vast majority of scientists. I hear talk about family values, but when an administration proposed legislation to allow mothers to take unpaid leave after childbirth, conservative religious groups opposed it. - Author: Philip Yancey
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Philip Yancey
#17. The good performed by some of United Nations institutions, such as the World Health Organization and UNICEF, has been outweighed by the amount of bad the UN has either abetted or allowed. It has enabled genocide in Rwanda, done little or nothing to stop genocide in the Congo and Sudan, given a respectable forum to tyrannies, convened conferences (the Durban Conferences on racism) that simply became forums for anti-Semitism, and been preoccupied with vilifying one of its relatively few humane states, Israel. Its moral failings were further exemplified by its placing Qaddafi's Libya on its Human Rights Commission, Iran on its Commission on the Status of Women, and North Korea on the Nuclear Disarmament Commission. It is not that the people who run the United Nations are bad people; it is that the United Nations is run by a majority of the world's governments, and they are run by bad people. Without America in the Security Council, the bad would nearly always prevail. - Author: Dennis Prager
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Dennis Prager
#18. Negotiations with Iran, especially, will not be easy under any circumstances, but I suspect that they might be somewhat less difficult if the nuclear-weapon states could show that their requests are part of a broader effort to lead the world, including themselves, toward nuclear disarmament. Preventing further proliferation is essential, but it is not a recipe for success to preach to the rest of the world to stay away from the very weapons that nuclear states claim are indispensable to their own security. - Author: Hans Blix
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Hans Blix
#19. The advocates of nuclear disarmament seem to believe that, if they could achieve their aim, war would become tolerable and decent. They would do well to read this book and ponder the fate of Dresden, where 135,000 people died as the result of an air attack with conventional weapons. On the night of March 9th, 1945, an air attack on Tokyo by American heavy bombers, using incendiary and high explosive bombs, caused the death of 83,793 people. The atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima killed 71,379 people. So it goes. - Author: Kurt Vonnegut
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#20. For some twenty years the window that opened at the end of the Cold War has been allowed to hang flapping in the wind. It is high time that the five nuclear-weapon states take seriously their commitment to negotiate toward nuclear disarmament. - Author: Hans Blix
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Hans Blix
#21. I call on all scientists in all countries to cease and desist from work creating, developing, improving and manufacturing further nuclear weapons - and, for that matter, other weapons of potential mass destruction such as chemical and biological weapons. - Author: Hans Bethe
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Hans Bethe
#22. Above all else, we need a reaffirmation of political commitment at the highest levels to reducing the dangers that arise both from existing nuclear weapons and from further proliferation. - Author: Kofi Annan
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Kofi Annan
#23. The existence of nuclear weapons presents a clear and present danger to life on Earth. Nuclear arms cannot bolster the security of any nation because they represent a threat to the security of the human race. These incredibly destructive weapons are an affront to our common humanity, and the tens of billions of dollars that are dedicated to their development and maintenance should be used instead to alleviate human need and suffering - Author: Oscar Arias
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Oscar Arias
#24. An act of unilateral nuclear disarmament by a European power would have a much more lasting impact than all the sanctions under consideration. Sanctions, as we know from the example of Iraq, always affect the least powerful citizens the most. - Author: Tariq Ali
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Tariq Ali
#25. Our objective is to make our-self the perfect embodiment of love, peace and compassion. We may fail, but that is not the point, the point is that we have tried and perfection can be achieved by practice only. - Author: Amit Ray
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Amit Ray
#26. There are good reasons why we don't want everyone to learn nuclear physics, medicine or how financial markets work. Our entire modern project has been about delegating power over us to skilled people who want to do the work and be rewarded accordingly. - Author: Evgeny Morozov
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Evgeny Morozov
#27. The cruciform does not like pain. Nor do I but, like the cruciform, I am willing to use it to serve my purposes. And I will do so consciously, not instinctively like the mindless mass of alien tissue embedded in me. This thing only seeks a mindless avoidance of death by any means. I do not wish to die, but I welcome pain and death rather than an eternity of mindless life. Life is sacred--I still hold to that as a core element of the Church's though and teachings these past twenty-eight hundred years when life has been so cheap--but even more sacred is the soul.
I realize now that what I was trying to do with the Armaghast data was offer the Church not a rebirth but only a transition to a false life such as these poor walking corpses inhabit. If the Church is meant to die, it must do so--but do so gloriously, in the full knowledge of its rebirth in Christ. It must go into the darkness not willingly but well--bravely and firm of faith--like the millions who have gone before us, keeping faith with all those generations facing death in the isolated silence of death camps and nuclear fireballs and cancer wards and pogroms, going into the darkness, if not hopefully, then prayerful that there is some reason for it all, something worth the price of all that pain, all those sacrifices., All those before us have gone into the darkness without assurance of logic or fact or persuasive theory, with only a slender thread of hope or the all too shakable conviction of faith. And if the - Author: Dan Simmons
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Dan Simmons
#28. When I was at Berkeley, the framework of quantum field theory could calculate the dynamics of electromagnetism. It could roughly describe the motion of the weak nuclear force, radiation. But it hit a brick wall with the strong interaction, the binding force. - Author: David Gross
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by David Gross
#29. When most major Protestant denominations have their annual councils, assemblies, or conventions, they make pronouncements on matters having to do with disarmament, federal aid to education, birth control, the United Nations, and any number of social and political issues. Very rarely are any resolutions passed that have to do with the
redemptive witness of the Gospel. - Author: Billy Graham
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Billy Graham
#30. Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language. - Author: Lev Grossman
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Lev Grossman
#31. Our nuclear free status means that we decline to acquiesce in the strategies of nuclear deterrence. We will not turn a blind eye to them, and pretend that the weapons are no longer a threat. We will not in any way tolerate the testing of nuclear weapons, or their manufacture, or their deployment. - Author: David Lange
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by David Lange
#32. I was working from home at the time and sometimes indulged in a little wander around my yard, a hard reset before I got back to work. Today, however, I had ignored the nice weather and instead put my head on my desk, forehead pressed to the Formica and arms covering my skull.

I had joked with one of my yoga-loving co-workers that I was developing a series of poses that we could do at our desks. A head-in-hands slump over galleys called "Drudge's Hunch". The arms overhead seated stretch called "Fluorescent Salutation". The hand out position used to catch the fire door so it didn't slam and bother everyone. That was "Worrier's Pose".

My current pose was called "Nuclear Fallout". - Author: Kory Stamper
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Kory Stamper
#33. At 2:26 AM on 3 June 1980, Colonel William Odom of the Strategic Air Command alerted National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski that the US nuclear warning system had detected an imminent 220-missile nuclear attack on the US. Shortly thereafter, the automated system revised its projection from 220 missiles to an all-out attack of 2200 missiles. Just before Brzezinski was about to wake up President Carter to authorize a counterattack, he was told that the 'attack' was an illusion caused by 'a computer error in the system'. - Author: Stansfield Turner
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Stansfield Turner
#34. Everybody wished to confess, not to admit anything. The sins they remembered, before the end of the world, were general rather than particular. Nobody even knew how to tell the time. Banks of computers around the planet were predicted to crash when the end of the millennium arrived. All the machinery dependent on electronic calculation would go: jumbo jets and atomic power plants, satellites and radio stations, nuclear submarines beneath the ice caps and the stock exchange in New York. Each sin demanded to be told to its full extent before the day arrived. The culprits counted them out one after the other, arriving at a total just as if they were finding the sums of the cents in their hands. But there was no simple way to measure sin. - Author: Imraan Coovadia
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Imraan Coovadia
#35. He's like six hundred years younger than you are. I refuse to be the moral compass of our cell! Most weekends I have an intoxispell bong attached to my mouth like a respirator. I love scatological humor, and I list 'pranks involving nuclear waste' and 'making demons eat things' as my hobbies. - Author: Kresley Cole
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Kresley Cole
#36. In view of the frequent occurrence of modern domestic groups that do not consist of, or contain, an exclusive pair-bonded father and mother, I cannot see why anyone should insist that our ancestors were reared in monogamous nuclear families and that pair-bonding is more natural than other arrangements. - Author: Marvin Harris
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Marvin Harris
#37. The Dome is a metaphor that could mean anything - it could be nuclear fallout, terrorists - I've always been fascinated with stories where people's roles are flipped on their heads, be it the Wall Street guy, the techno guy, etc. All of those things are only successful when there are people and money around. - Author: Mike Vogel
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Mike Vogel
#38. Although North Korea's position differs (from Tokyo's), Japan's basic stance remains unchanged ? to seek sincere responses from the North Korean side to resolve the abduction and nuclear issues, - Author: Junichiro Koizumi
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Junichiro Koizumi
#39. If you took every nuclear weapon ever built at the height of the Cold War, lumped them together and blew them up at the same time, that would be one one-millionth of the energy released at that moment. - Author: Phil Plait
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Phil Plait
#40. International peace negotiations need more value creation than value claiming. The more we create value for peace and development, the easier it is going to be to claim value for nuclear weapons free world. - Author: Amit Ray
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Amit Ray
#41. A convention on the comprehensive ban of nuclear weapons should be negotiated. Since biological and chemical weapons have been prohibited, there is no reason why nuclear weapons, which are more destructive, should not be comprehensively banned and thoroughly destroyed. All it takes to reach this objective is strong political will. - Author: Jiang Zemin
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Jiang Zemin
#42. Beneath the violet pillar, in the vacuum before the roar of the cloud, there came a soft sound that might have been heard by those who listened closely: the gentle sigh of an idea unbound. - Author: Lydia Millet
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Lydia Millet
#43. Checking out shoes when looking for Lesbians is an elimination device, a negative marker. Lesbians wear sensible shoes whenever possible. Irene and I have learned to pass right by a woman who looks like a Lesbian from head to ankle, but wears flimsy shoes with pointed toes and heels. She is sure to mention a husband by her second sentence.

So, what does a Lesbian look like? Well, we saw two old women drive into a campground in a large motorhome. One dog and no men accompanied them. These are Lesbian-positive clues. We seldom see old women in campgrounds unless they are accompanied by old men. They walked the dog, each wearing a long "ladies" winter coat and lipstick. We casually intercepted them.

"Nice dog," says Irene. The dog growled. We mentioned the movie about nuclear war on TV the night before.

"They should go to Russia. Show it to the Communists," they angrily replied. We walked on. If they were Lesbians, I did not want to know.

"Not Lesbians," pronounced my expert. "There are Lesbians who wear 'ladies' coats and Lesbians who wear lipstick. There are even Lesbians who prefer nuclear war to "Godless Communism"; but Lesbians would not let their dog growl at a woman without correcting it. - Author: Julia Penelope
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Julia Penelope
#44. If the Iraqi regime is able to produce, buy or steal an amount of highly enriched uranium a little larger than a single softball, [it] could have a nuclear weapon in less than a year. - Author: George W. Bush
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by George W. Bush
#45. He looked around when he heard a window-rattling roar. "Earthquake? Volcano? Nuclear war?" "Beaver," Peter told him. "I don't care if it is Alaska, you don't have beavers big enough to sound like that. - Author: Nora Roberts
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Nora Roberts
#46. At that time my notions of nuclear power were utterly idyllic. At school and at the university we'd been taught that this was a magical factory that made "energy out of nothing," where people in white robes sat and pushed buttons. Chernobyl blew up when we weren't prepared. - Author: Svetlana Alexievich
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Svetlana Alexievich
#47. What is the only provocation that could bring about the use of nuclear weapons? Nuclear weapons. What is the priority target for nuclear weapons? Nuclear weapons. What is the only established defense against nuclear weapons? Nuclear weapons. How do we prevent the use of nuclear weapons? By threatening the use of nuclear weapons. And we can't get rid of nuclear weapons, because of nuclear weapons. The intransigence, it seems, is a function of the weapons themselves. - Author: Martin Amis
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Martin Amis
#48. I support a very active programme on disarmament and arms control for Iraq, and of course every other country in the world ... That does not require economic sanctions ... I think we've got to take the risk and give up economic sanctions while hanging on to the disarmament programme and allow the Iraqis to get on with rebuilding their country. - Author: Denis Halliday
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Denis Halliday
#49. Family and work. Family and work. I can let them be at war, with guilt as their nuclear weapon and mutually assured destruction as their aim, or I can let them nourish each other. - Author: Ellen Gilchrist
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Ellen Gilchrist
#50. One of the surprising things that Brezhnev said when we were in our talks, was - when I proposed that we make these changes in nuclear weaponry, he said, "God will never forgive us if we don't succeed." And, you know, coming from the leader of an atheistic communist country, this surprised everyone. - Author: Jimmy Carter
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Jimmy Carter
#51. Only in America can you be Pro-Death Penalty, Pro-War, Pro-Unmanned Drone Bombs, Pro-Nuclear Weapons, Pro-Guns, Pro-Torture, Pro-Land Mines, AND still call yourself 'Pro-Life.' - Author: John Fugelsang
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by John Fugelsang
#52. The nuclear arms race is over, but the ethical problems raised by nonmilitary technology remain. The ethical problems arise from three "new ages" flooding over human society like tsunamis. First is the Information Age, already arrived and here to stay, driven by computers and digital memory. Second is the Biotechnology Age, due to arrive in full force early in the next century, driven by DNA sequencing and genetic engineering. Third is the Neurotechnology Age, likely to arrive later in the next century, driven by neural sensors and exposing the inner workings of human emotion and personality to manipulation. - Author: Freeman Dyson
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Freeman Dyson
#53. Israel claims it needs nuclear weapons as a deterrent against any threat to its existence. The Arab world in return feels that this is an imbalanced system; there is a sense of humiliation and impotence. - Author: Mohamed ElBaradei
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Mohamed ElBaradei
#54. One of our gravest concerns is the entry of a nuclear device or materials into the U.S. - Author: Charles E. Allen
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Charles E. Allen
#55. The official record for the fastest manmade object is the Helios 2 probe, which reached about 70 km/s in a close swing around the Sun. But it's possible the actual holder of that title is a two-ton metal manhole cover. The cover sat atop a shaft at an underground nuclear test site operated by Los Alamos as part of Operation Plumbbob. When the 1-kiloton nuke went off below, the facility effectively became a nuclear potato cannon, giving the cap a gigantic kick. A high-speed camera trained on the lid caught only one frame of it moving upward before it vanished - which means it was moving at a minimum of 66 km/s. The cap was never found. - Author: Randall Munroe
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Randall Munroe
#56. Unfortunately, most scientists were radicals, socialists, and liberals. There was hardly a conservative among them. And they believed that the truths discovered by science were for humankind to share, and should never be kept secret in the service of one regime or country. So while the American government was keeping this huge project top secret, the scientists held discussion groups about sharing nuclear technology with all the nations of the world. Oppie himself was suspect: the only reason he was not in the Communist Party was that he never joined clubs. - Author: Ken Follett
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Ken Follett
#57. There is not the slightest indication that nuclear energy will ever be obtainable. - Author: John Langdon-Davies
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by John Langdon-Davies
#58. Nuclear power is cost-competitive with other low-carbon technology and is a crucial part of our energy mix, along with new sources of power such as shale gas. - Author: George Osborne
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by George Osborne
#59. From now on it is not dying we must fear, but living. - Author: Arundhati Roy
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Arundhati Roy
#60. The spread of nuclear weapons is the greatest threat facing the country-and I would argue facing humanity. - Author: Joe Biden
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Joe Biden
#61. Well, the disarmament conference is off to a flying start. There is nothing to prevent their succeeding now but human nature. - Author: Will Rogers
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Will Rogers
#62. [Nuclear war] ... may not be desirable. - Author: Edwin Meese
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Edwin Meese
#63. Every human is technically a meaningless sack of carbon clinging to a rock hurtling through the uncaring void around trillions of tons of nuclear fire, but that's too big for a single human to be aware of - Author: Dean Burnett
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Dean Burnett
#64. This is the twenty-first century. The oceans are rising. Mad dictators have access to nuclear weapons. Corporatism and the dumbing down of the media have destroyed the very foundations of democracy. Anyone who isn't afraid is a moron." There - Author: Tommy Wallach
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Tommy Wallach
#65. Nuclear power plants built in the areas usually thought of as earthquake zones, such as the California coastline, have a surprisingly low risk of damage from those earthquakes. Why? They built anticipating a major quake. - Author: Bill Dedman
Nuclear Disarmament quotes by Bill Dedman
