Forecasting a spring thaw on prospects of a nuclear winter    

Are you discouraged by the growing threat of nuclear weapons? There may be en-couraging news on the horizon. A recent Politico article raises hopeful prospects that a new Biden administration could reverse the Trump administration’s trend toward heightened nuclear tensions and a renewed nuclear arms race.
