______________

What happens during the announced meeting between Donald Trump and 
Vladimir Putin in a few days, at the G-20 summit in Germany, could 
determine the fate of the Earth.

The" Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists" continues to warn the world that 
*the hands of the risk-estimate "Doomsday Clock" have moved even closer 
to catastrophic midnight*. The dangers of global nuclear holocaust are 
increasing -- and a major factor is the rise of tensions between the 
United States and Russia.

So, profoundly, this is not about Trump or Putin. *This is about whether 
relations between the two nuclear-weapons superpowers will continue to 
spin out, worsening the risks of military confrontation.* This is about 
whether the young people we love -- and so many others around the world 
-- will have a future. And whether subsequent generations will even exist.
  *If you want to express support for seeking d├ętente instead of 
boosting U.S.-Russian tensions, please click here to sign a petition 
with a vital message for Trump and Putin.* [

"
"To: President Vladimir Putin and President Donald Trump"
We vehemently urge you to take a constructive approach to your planned 
meeting at the G-20 summit. Whatever our differences, we must reduce 
rather than increase the risks of nuclear war. The future of humanity is 
at stake."

To read about the "Doomsday Clock," please click on a Background link at 
the bottom of this email.

After signing the petition, *please use the tools on the next webpage to 
share it with your friends*.
