This book makes me tremendously hopeless for the future. Everything we're working to protect is probably going to be destroyed unless we address this issue head on, and it seems very unlikely that this is going to happen. People just don't care enough.

Do you think the solution is to keep trying to kill every terrorists?

I think the solution is to confiscate all radioactive material that could be used in WMDs and send it into space.

Your profile pic was killing me. I knew I would kick myself, but just couldn't get it. It was so in my brain somewhere. Its Lebowitz.

Soooooo impossible. That is like a huge part of our planet.

Perhaps. But at the very least we need to ensure that the existing radioactive material is well protected (some is not) or dispose of it, ban all future extraction, and closely monitor rogue states trying to acquire radioactive material. Basically, we need to do a lot more than we're doing now.

Work on the tech of detection and monitoring. That is my solution.
