The world is reaching a nuclear tipping point, and a catastrophe looms. Even the United Nations cant seem to do anything about the threat.

Given the circumstances, people everywhere need to unite to prevent a disaster. In this new study, peace activist R. B. Herath explains whats at stake and what everyday people can do to solve the problem.

Here are some of the questions Herath seeks to answer:

What are the major violent conflicts in the world today?
Is there any guarantee that none of the ongoing violent conflicts will deteriorate into a worldwide fiasco?
If there is no such guarantee, what needs to be done to prevent such an eventuality?
Is there anything more to be done to ensure lasting peace on the planet?

By taking steps to prevent tension from building up to a tipping point and by building a stronger system of checks and balances, its possible to resolve conflicts at all levels through peaceful means.

Join Herath as he seeks to change habits that promote war to habits that promote peace in the face of the present troubled state of the world.
