Thousands of cold-stunned sea turtles being rescued in Texas

People have taken thousands of cold-stunned sea turtles to a convention center in South Texas in hopes of saving them during the unusually chilly weather

The US must sign. It would be a wonderful world if we could get rid of all nukes. Given recent circumstances in the US, China and Russia... the idea that some governments can 'handle' nuclear weapons and some can't is just silly. They are catastrophic in everyone's hands. Now that the nuclear nimrod is out let’s join!

Yeah. Leave it to NPR to report the ridiculous. Hey farooquema - didn’t CSPO_ASU host a conference once upon a time about banning technologes? What was the conclusion? Is it worth revisiting the question in light of the world’s new treaty outlawing nuclear weapons? That is so encouraging. Every steps a step forward

Nor will they. As long as one country has a nuke, the rest of the superpowers will have at least 10 to compensate. It's ridiculous but, it's the way of things.
