Why We Might Only Be a Hack Away from Nuclear Disaster
How close are we nuclear disaster? Experts say it could only be a hack away. Eric Schlosser, the author behind Fast Food Nation, has tackled our risk for nuclear disaster in his 2013 book, Command and Control. Schlosser says that nuclear weapons are one of the greatest advancements yet also the greatest threats to U.S. civilization and our well being.
Meanwhile, Erika Gregory is attempting to determine how Silicon Valley and technology can help eliminate the threat of nuclear weapons. She estimates that there are still around 17,000 nuclear weapons worldwide that could be deployed at any moment.
