World reknowned astronomer Carl Sagan writes that we are facing a historic opportunity to extricate ourselves from the nightmarish nuclear trap by matching the Soviet Union's unilateral halt of testing nuclear weapons. He's right!
Sagan has written, lectured and traveled the globe to make this point. Recently he took his message to the Nevada test site where he was arrested while petitioning our government to stop this nuclear madness.
Can he do more? He has, by challenging the U.S. government to match the Soviets in their nuclear test moratorium. What he has done is place the burden of responsibility firmly where it belongs--in the laps of each registered voter in America.
Currently, the House of Representatives is on record to end nuclear testing. The Senate is not. At this time there are not a majority of senators favoring binding legislation to end testing. There could be as a result of the 1986 November elections!
