The ADA and the Veto Power

Inglis, David R.
June 1946
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;6/1/1946, Vol. 1 Issue 12, p15
The article discusses the Atomic Development Authority and the veto power being proposed of the international control of atomic energy. Scientists have expressed political naivety in terms of pre-atomic standards but nonetheless want to share the vision of international relations in atomic energy. Technical methods must be employed in achieving an agreement that the world's leaders and political leaders must agree with. The ADA has responded to the drastic necessity of the world at the moment, but the plan is yet to be argued and the Soviet Union is first in line to question the veto power.
