In a year when threats from nuclear weapons seemed to draw closer, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded on Friday to an advocacy group behind the first treaty to prohibit them. The group, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, a Geneva-based coalition of disarmament activists, was honored for its efforts to advance the negotiations that led to the treaty, which was reached in Julyat the United Nations. "The organization is receiving the award for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its groundbreaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons," the Norwegian Nobel Committee said in a statement. The choice amounted to a blunt rejoinder to the world's nine nuclear-armed powers, which boycotted the negotiations and denounced the treaty as a naïve and dangerous diversion.

Under Trump, the USA is now openly threatening other countries with the use of nuclear weapons. The USA has destroyed portions of the Pacific, such as the Marshall Islands atolls, rendering all life in those areas radioactive for millions of years. Hanford, Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima have had the same effect. ALL steel manufactured after WWII is too radioactive to be used for high energy physics experiment shielding.

Nulli's paranoia about 'SJW's remind me of Zatoichi discussing hoplophobes, Shawn (?) discussing obfuscator's, Corky discussing BernieBros, or Boaz discussing Muslims.

Null are you really such a partisan snowflake that you even get defensive over an award being given to a group that is trying to keep mankind from killing ourselves?
I recommend some introspective meditation.

I still can not. I can choose, but it does not register.
