the bomb at 75: Dr. Emma Belcher on the Toxic Legacy of Australian Nuclear Testing and the Continuing Nuclear Threat

As the head of the Ploughshares Fund—the United States’ leading non-profit in the fight to eliminate nuclear weapons—Dr. Emma Belcher forewarns us about the effects of nuclear testing on Aboriginal communities, and points towards the ways in which the coronavirus pandemic may help us prevent future nuclear disaster. Prior to her current position, Belcher spent nearly a decade at the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, where she led the Nuclear Challenges grantmaking program.
