1. Author Jonathan Schell (The Fate of the Earth) explains how there are enough nuclear weapons to destroy our own species. As of 2010, nine nations have nuclear weapons, totally 23,000 weapons amongst them, while thousands of U.S. and Russian weapons still on high alert.
    THE FORGOTTEN BOMB - When the Cold War ended, the generations that lived through it were relieved to finally vanquish the specter of a mushroom cloud from their minds. But today, thousands of nuclear weapons in the United States and Russia remain on high-alert, still poised to destroy the planet.

    In a globe-trotting journey through various perspectives on nuclear weapons, filmmaker Bud Ryan takes us from the Peace Museums of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to the “Nuclear Science” museums of the United States; to the place that birthed the atomic bomb, (and cares for it still) the state of New Mexico, where Ryan now lives. Featuring former U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz, authors Gar Alperovitz and Jonathan Schell, Japanese bomb survivors, and many others, THE FORGOTTEN BOMB explores our pre-conceptions about nuclear weapons and their history, investigates how they inform our sense of identity and discovers what the Bomber can learn from the Bombed. forgottenbomb.com.
