World's largest marine area protected in historic agreement

Posted by Steve - on 10/11/2016 to News
Very good news for the world’s oceans. The last pristine ocean ecosystem remaining on earth is now protected thanks to a landmark agreement hammered out by 24 nations and the European Union. Over 600,000 square miles of the Ross Sea in Antarctica will be off-lmits to commercial fishing and hunting of marine life.

The Ross Sea is a deep bay in the Antarctic Ocean, which produces about three-quarters of the nutrients that sustain life in the rest of the world’s oceans, upwelled by currents that carry them around the world.

New Film on Nuclear Weapons Screening at UN

Posted by Steve -- on 10/1/2016 to News
The United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs on October 12 is screening THE NUCLEAR REQUIEM,  a new film produced by former ABC News Executive Producer Robert Frye now available from The Video Project.

North Korea’s nuclear tests and the potential for a new global arms race with Russia provide stark reminders of the enormous threat posed by the most lethal weapon ever invented.

Featuring more than 30 top security experts from around the world, THE NUCLEAR REQUIEM  presents an updated, in-depth look at the continuing danger nuclear weapons pose, an honest assessment of the current obstacles to disarmament, and a frank, yet hopeful, discussion of what it will take to overcome the roadblocks to a safer world.

The film includes footage from President Obama’s historic visit this year to Hiroshima, the first by a U.S. President. In his speech, Obama suggests we must "look directly into the eye of history and ask what we must do differently to curb such suffering again."

"Intriguing and compelling... highlights the terror and hope nuclear weapons invoke.”
 - William Lanouette, Author, Genius in the Shadows: A Biography of Leo Szilard

"A thoughtful film exploring the contours of our Nuclear Age.”
 - Kelly DeVine, Global Peace Film Festival
