“Almost every war that involves the Major Powers is about oil and the global power it represents.
He is using his epic voyage to highlight the UK Government’s decision to deploy new nuclear weapons.
In 1967 the UK signed a treaty obligation to get rid of these weapons of mass destruction.
In 1996 the World Court ruled that they were subject to international law which says that any weapon which incinerates and irradiates people indiscriminately could never be used lawfully.”
Peter argues that billions of pounds are being squandered on useless, illegal, and dangerous nuclear weapons. If we concentrated on measures to combat climate change we could effectively reduce our Carbon Footprint.
