Nuclear weapons still matter, in ways that defy the imagination. This is a time of danger. Nuclear weapons could be the cause of millions of deaths—on short notice and without any rational cause. Nuclear weapons have not lost their doomsday qualities. However, this may also be a time of opportunity: deep and irreversible reductions in the nuclear stockpiles of Russia and the United States may be possible and that would unlock the door to reductions in the nuclear holdings of other states that possess nuclear weapons.
