Nuclear War Risk: Plot Twists

Lecture Theatre

5:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Two recent events have substantially changed the risk of nuclear war. One is the shifting relationship between Russia and the US since the 2016 election. The other is a recent paper that finds nuclear winter to be substantially less severe than previous studies. In this presentation, Seth will discuss how these events have changed my own thinking and what the mean for effective altruists and Australians.
