From Nuclear and Strategic Disarmament to Joint Worldwide Research and Development for Humanity Survival

Claudio Nicolini


In the last few years the problems of humanity are growing in all sectors of the economy, from energy to environment and disasters induced by nuclear reactors, from cancer to hardware and space such as asteroids. More than 150,000 asteroids are now registered in the Smithsonian’s Minor Planet Center and NASA estimates that more than 1,000 are characterized as Near-Earth Objects that can be stopped only by nuclear weapons which are on the hands essentially of United States of America and Russian Federation. Similarly, nuclear reactors are progressively deteriorating everywhere except in the only two nations where referendum (Italy) and governments (Germany) stopped them. Attempts to solve them at the national scale failed because of the magnitude of the crisis induced by the derivatives appears to have far lasting devastating effects in each country and because the magnitude of the technological problems long time underestimated became unmatchable at the scale of any nation regardless of its size. The scheme based on leading multinational companies, that in the past was able to work for Bioelectronics with the creation of ad hoc consortia, could still be valid now when properly extended to the two Russia and USA as in the past reaching the required critical mass with USSR and Europe within the Biochip Project according to rules and procedures set meritocratically. Even if present international situation makes prohibitive for both to transfer resources from nuclear and strategic armaments to science and technology, only jointly they appear capable to overcome the numerous open problems.
