82.31. National Academy Of Sciences Resolution
The National Academy of Sciences of the U.S.A. issued 27 April, 1982 a Resolution on Nuclear War and Arms Control. An overwhelming majority of the more than 200 members gathered at the annual meeting in Washington called upon U.S. Congress, the President, and other world leaders to reopen and intensify efforts to reduce the threat of nuclear war. This unprecedental action by NAS should be emulated by other learned societies. We encourage members of Science for Peace who are Fellows of the Royal Society of Canada to introduce a resolution (perhaps based on the Minority Report) at the annual meeting in Ottawa in June.
