It is sad that MIT professors can't see bigger picture when talking about nuclear weapons. Nuc have, arguably , been the biggest peace keeper in history. How many nuclear nations have been into open war since they posses it? To Nuclear bomb should be given the Nobel peace prize if there were enough wisdom at Nobel committee. Fear of nuclear response is the biggest motivator for humans not to indulge in war. Imagine what would have happened with Ukraine have they not let go of their nuclear weapons to Russia in 90's. Do you think there would be an invasion?

@Urooj Arshad Imagine how many times in past decades India and Pakistan would have start war were there not for nucs on both sides. And how many lives were saved because they have nucs. Nuclear weapons saved far more lives in past 70 years then any peace organization.

But these two nations also have millions of people living below poverty line. If only reconciliation and peaceful coexistance was possible, the world would be a much much better place Without spending on nukes

That's is a fresh perspective I heard on nuclear weapons. Posession of nukes create a power shift as well. I.e. India is bigger than Pakistan in terms of economy, population and geography. But the presence of nukes has quite reduced that power difference between two nation.

Another 1859 Carrington Event would be humbling, yes, and a recent pandemic hints of biological warfare.

And here I thought the greatest threat to MIT’s credibility for the past 22 years 4 months and 4 days was visible, as it has been on every cloudy day, from the Museum of Science, where now a livecam takes streaming video across the Charles River on cold and cloudy days, when such days show the reality. I am Norbert’s heir. I’d like to think he would have gotten the obvious right, but sometimes I wonder.

Even if all nuclear weapons were fired on earth it would not be an existential threat

@Alex Stern HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT THE EARTH WOULD NOT BE KNOCKED OUT OF ORBIT? And where would land, air and water go?

The physical earth would still continue to rotate and revolve around the sun with a handful of surviving humans. We would survive as a species, probably. Society and civilization would be irrevocably destroyed, to an extent that they may never be reconstituted in the absence of everything that had been present before by which our advancement was bootstrapped.

Also, it is likely nuclear weapons will be used by men, not women. Perhaps psychiatric care would help men.

The first 13 seconds of the video addresses this detail.

It is likely because the chain of command for deploying nuclear weapons anywhere in the world consists almost exclusively of males. It is unlikely that a woman would use a nuclear weapon strictly because no women is capable of doing so.
