Larry Wittner: "A
Nuclear Arms Race or a Nuclear-Free World?"
Wittner will give a talk titled: "A Nuclear Arms Race or a
World?" Description: Currently, all the nuclear powers are
engaged in their latest nuclear weapons buildup, with the U.S.
government alone spending $1 trillion on nuclear
"modernization." This nuclear arms race is being challenged this
spring by UN negotiations to ban nuclear weapons. Which will
prevail? A discussion will follow Larry's presentation. Larry
Wittner is Professor of History emeritus at the State University of
York/Albany. Larry is the author or editor of thirteen books,
including Rebels Against War, The Biographical Dictionary of Modern
Peace Leaders, Peace Action, Working for Peace and Justice, and the
award-winning trilogy, The Struggle Against the Bomb, which is
available in abbreviated form as Confronting the Bomb. His
hundreds of published articles and book reviews have appeared in
journals, magazines, newspapers, and online publications around the
world. He has given lectures about peace and disarmament in
dozens of nations, and has spoken about such issues at the Norwegian

Lying Bastards, (2013, 94 minutes), iinvestigates the reasons behind
stalled efforts to tackle climate change despite the consensus in the
scientific community that it is not only a reality but a growing
problem, placing us on the brink of disaster. The film details the people and organizations
casting doubt on climate science and claims that greenhouse gases are
not affected by human behavior. From the Koch Brothers to ExxonMobil, to
oil industry front groups, to prominent politicians and Justices, this
provocative exposé unravels the layers of deceit threatening democracy
and the ability for future generations to survive on planet earth. A discussion will follow the film.
