The prospects for reducing the threat of nuclear weapons are affected by doctrinal changes within states. In the years following the first nuclear explosions in 1945 the elimination of nuclear weapons was described by governments as necessary to the survival of the human race. Many of the atomic scientists of that day, Soviet as well as US, believed that, or came to believe it after the tests of hydrogen bombs. Political leaders at least went through the motions of trying to do something about it. UN resolutions endorsed the abolition of nuclear weapons and UN committees discussed methods and plans aimed at accomplishing that goal.
