The Countdown to Zero

Countdown to Zero traces the history of the atomic bomb from its origins to the present state of global affairs: nine nations possess nuclear weapons capabilities with others racing to join them, with the world held in a delicate balance that could be shattered by an act of terrorism, failed diplomacy, or a simple accident. Written and directed by acclaimed documentarian Lucy Walker (Devil’s Playground, Blindsight), the film features an array of important international statesmen, including Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, Pervez Musharraf and Tony Blair. Magnolia Pictures is releasing the film in North America; HISTORY™ has North American broadcast rights. The film was produced by Academy Award® winner and 2009 nominee Lawrence Bender (Inglourious Basterds, An Inconvenient Truth) and developed, financed and executive produced by Participant Media, together with World Security Institute.

Guys, I'm sure you know enough about me by now that you know this is something I completely agree with...

Dr. Michio Kaku (my hero), world renowned physicist, has discussed this topic many times in the past. He states that this is a very sensitive time for us, as the human race. We are the brink of becoming a Level 1 Civilization (there are different types.. we're level zero right now, not in control of anything.. just drifting around on a big rock in space) and the only thing that could stop us from being level one, is if we destroy ourselves with technology like a nuclear weapon. He, himself, had the opportunity to work for some nuclear weapons manufacturers and decided against it--so that he may use his talents to better the world, instead of harming it.

So please, call your local theatres and ask/insist/demand that they bring Countdown to Zero to your town. I mean, if you want to get the word out about living on a safe world..

I'm calling in the morning.. How 'bout you?
