The threat of nuclear war or serious nuclear accident remains with us. Tom Law argues that these risks are increasing to a chilling degree with the continued proliferation of nuclear facilities, particularly in the emerging economies of Asia.
The rise of terrorism, concurrent with the spread of nuclear technology into fundamentalist Islamic countries, brings a new ingredient of uncertainty to the present balance. Only a new approach of awareness and tolerance can prevent an imminent slide into chaos.
The exponential rise in human populations amid depleting material and energy resources presents even more pressing problems. Ways must be found to solve these in the very near future.
It will take an extraordinary turnaround in our present thinking as well as a letting go of western materialism if the right road is to be trodden.
The stakes are high - the very survival of humanity.
