Synopsis
During the Cold War, nothing loomed as large in the public mind as the bomb. When the Iron Curtain fell, the bomb became a symbol of another era. Naively we felt the danger had passed. In recent years, the threat of nuclear proliferation has grown more urgent, and the political will to eliminate nuclear weapons is greater than ever in our history. We have now entered a second nuclear age. Nuclear weapons have proliferated to nine nations, and that number could continue to grow as over 40 nations have the knowledge to construct nuclear weapons. Terrorists are actively securing nuclear weapons and fissile material, not to use as political leverage, but rather as tools of mass destruction. Equally as great a threat is human error; the possibility of an accident increases every day. "Countdown to Zero" is a frightening exploration of the dangers of nuclear weapons, exposing a variety of present day threats and featuring insights from a host of international experts and world leaders who advocate total global disarmament.
