Today is the sixtieth anniversary of the use of nuclear weapons on Japan in World War II. Rather than go into the justification or lack of justification for those events, I’d rather point to the fact that there are still about 20,000 of these weapons in the world today. And just remind us how horrifying these weapons are, Eric Meyer has built a tool that maps the effects of a one megatonne ground detonation over Seattle.
