A Hiroshima and Nagasaki collection
Monday marks 73 years since the US dropped the Bomb on Hiroshima and, days later, Nagasaki. Here are some of the most important pieces the Bulletin has published on the implications of history’s only use of nuclear weapons in warfare.

 Disarmament over deterrence: Nuclear lessons from Latin America

Christopher Dunlap | Voices of Tomorrow

 

A path to disarmament-based security is viable; Latin American and Caribbean visionaries gave us the road map at Tlatelolco a half-century ago.

North Korea’s other weapons of mass destruction 
Alexandra Bell, Abby Pokraka Analysis
The US needs to work with allies to assess the scope of North Korea’s stockpile of biological and chemical weapons.

DARPA’s Prepare program: Preparing for what? 
Filippa Lentzos, Jez Littlewood Columnists

 

Much bio-defense work is justifiable, but DARPA’s new “gene-tuning” program may well push the limits of what is allowable under international security treaties.

Deterrence and its discontents
Ulrich Kühn Magazine
Psychoanalytic metaphors are used to explain why the US doesn’t (but should) have a long-term strategy for dealing with its most fundamental foreign policy challenges. Free-access in the digital magazine.

Myths of automation and their implications for military procurement
Robert R. Hoffman, Nadine Sarter, Matthew Johnson, John K. Hawley 
Magazine
One needn’t be a Luddite to recognize that “technophilic hubris” is causing problems in military procurement. Free-access in the digital magazine.

What We’re Reading

Hot but not bothered: Major media are ignoring the climate crisis
Dawn Stover Climate Change

 

It’s not just a TV problem; newspaper coverage is also failing to connect recent extreme heat to the climate change that’s causing it.

 

The coastal retreat has begun
Lucien Crowder Climate Change

 

After sea-level rise causes a New Jersey neighborhood to repeatedly flood, the government purchases the land to prevent future development.
