It's OFFICIAL: Nuclear Weapons Ban is a Reality!!! Best news ever. Watch the nuclear suppliers group (market) realize some chaos and more nuke plants shuttered.

Here's the vote tally:

Cool, I hope this has a chilling effect on the entire nuclear industry.

Yeah, a ban on nuclear weapons is a good start. I wonder though if that will include banning the use of DU weaponry?

I think because of the wording in the treaty, which includes "other nuclear explosive devices" that DU will fall under the nuclear ban umbrella. But, I will double check that with the experts on the treaty campaign.

Nuclear weapon design https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_weapon_design

"All so-called "fission-fusion-fission" weapons (i.e., all conventional modern thermonuclear warheads) employ the additional step of "jacket fissioning," using fusion neutrons. This works as follows: the high-energy or "fast" neutrons generated by fusion are used to fission a fissionable jacket located around the fusion stage. In the past this jacket was often made of natural or depleted uranium; but today's weapons in which there is a premium on weight and size (i.e., virtually all modern strategic weapons) use moderately-to-highly enriched uranium as the jacketing material (see Oralloy thermonuclear warheads section below). The fast fission of the secondary jacket in fission-fusion-fission bombs is sometimes referred to as a "third stage" in the bomb, but it should not be confused with the obsolete true three-stage thermonuclear design, in which there existed another complete tertiary fusion stage."

Not only were they absent, they encouraged other countries to sit this one out....
