But How Well Could Man Survive 'Nuclear Winter?'

I am stunned by the cavalier attitude taken by Edward Cornish in his recent column.

To enter into the "survivability" guessing game is to completely miss the point of the great challenge facing humankind today. It is not, "Can we survive?"but rather, "Can we move beyond this insanity called war?"

Modern technology has given us the growing capacity to destroy all life on this planet--the only thing that will save us is to change our Stone Age thinking about war in this world of nuclear reality--and move beyond war as a means of conflict resolution.
