AT: Probability

A risk of extinction makes probability irrelevant – the loss is so great that even a 1% chance must be regarded as 100% certainty

Kateb 86 (Dissent p. 163)

Nuclear discourse must vividly register that distinctiveness. It is of no moral account that extinction may be only a slight possibility. No one can say how great the probability is, but no one has yet credibly denied that by some sequence or other, a particular use of nuclear weapons may lead to human and natural extinction. If it is not impossible it must be treated as certain: the loss signified by extinction nullifies all calculations of probability as it nullifies all calculations of costs and benefits.
