A coalition of anti-nuclear organizations is launching a campaign to get governments and investors to stop funding the development of nuclear weapons. Alyn Ware, global coordinator of Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament, told a news conference Thursday that the global nuclear weapons budget is estimated at $100 billion annually, over half spent by the United States.

Ware said the campaign wants the money used to tackle climate change, poverty and inequality.
