Why are nuclear weapons bad
Effects and Consequences
Nuclear weapons are the most destructive, inhuman and arbitrary weapons ever created. The term “catastrophic humanitarian consequences”, which is widely used today, describes its unprecedented and terrible impact on people, including fatal injury to civilians not involved in the conflict. Doctors and scientists have the medical consequences
researched and documented for a long time after a nuclear war. They have come to the conclusion that the safety and survival of humanity depend on ridding the earth of these untenable weapons.
Use, testing and manufacturing
Nuclear weapons have been used twice in the war - over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. More than 200,000 innocent civilians were killed, and countless more suffered serious injuries. Even if there were never again a warlike use of nuclear weapons, the effects of the production, testing and stationing of nuclear arsenals remain, which for many people around the world mean a permanent catastrophe for their personal lives and that of their communities. This should
empower us even more in our endeavors to abolish these weapons once and for all.

Immediate and long-term effects
Nuclear weapons are unique in their destructive power and the threat they pose to the environment and human survival. They release huge amounts of energy in the form of pressure waves, heat and radiation. There is no effective humanitarian aid for this. In addition to the millions of people who would be killed instantly, a regional nuclear war in which about a hundred nuclear weapons the size of the Hiroshima bomb would be used is damaging the global climate and agricultural production to such an extent that more than a billion people per one Would be threatened with famine.

The humanitarian approach
The international community has signed agreements to abolish certain classes of weapons that cause unacceptable harm to people and the environment. These are biological and chemical weapons, land mines, cluster munitions and, more recently, nuclear weapons. Although the destructive power of nuclear weapons is many times greater than the destructive power of all other weapons, it took until 2017 before a universal prohibition treaty was negotiated and passed
