VIDEO: Watch this Commonwealth Club event in its entirety in the media player above.

A bipartisan team of George Schultz and William Perry discuss the spread of nuclear weapons and offer up a once-radical alternative: a world without nukes. The accelerated spread of nuclear weapons, nuclear know-how and nuclear material has brought us to a nuclear tipping point. Many people increasingly fear that the most destructive weapons ever created could fall into the hands of extremists or terrorists. Schultz, secretary of state under President Reagan, and Perry, secretary of defense under President Clinton, examine the world's ability to control the spread of these WMDs.

Hear two leading political and military strategists share their views on the potential for a nuclear catastrophe and discuss the possible elimination of these weapons.
