An Overview of “Brand New” Nukes and the Budget

Monday, February 12, 2017
Posted by Marylia Kelley

Today, while his Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 budget for nuclear weapons was being delivered to Congress, President Trump boasted: "We're increasing arsenals of virtually every weapon… We will have a nuclear force that will be absolutely modernized and brand-new.”

The Department of Energy (DOE) is the cabinet-level agency in charge of US nuclear weapons and the cleanup of contamination that comes with them, along with other programs. The DOE FY19 budget request is $30.6 billion.

The DOE National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) is the big budget winner. The President’s FY19 request provides $15.1 billion to create new and modified nuclear warheads and the bomb plants to build them in alignment with the recently released Nuclear Posture Review. This represents an increase of $2.2 billion (17%) over the current profligate annual spending level for NNSA.

Trump “Nuclear Posture” Approves New Warheads & Factories; Opens the Door to Testing

Tuesday, January 16, 2018
Posted by Joseph Rodgers

On Saturday, Hawaiians received a notification of incoming ballistic missiles on their cell phones. It took 38 minutes for the false alarm to be rescinded. Thousands of Americans called their loved ones for what they thought to be the last time. In those 38 minutes, citizens of Hawaii experienced first hand the radical contingency of life in the nuclear era.

Three days before the Hawaii incident, the Huffington Post leaked a draft of the Trump Administration’s Nuclear Posture Review, a Pentagon document that dictates the overall strategy for United States nuclear forces.

The leaked document, which is rumored to be the final draft, demonstrates an aggressive shift from the Obama posture review by mandating “more usable” low-yield nuclear weapons, doubling down on building new bomb plants, and lowering the threshold to resume nuclear weapons testing.

Prevent Open-Air Toxic Bomb Blasts at CA’s Site 300

CLICK HERE to sign the petition.

Tri-Valley CAREs (Communities Against a Radioactive Environment) calls all CA residents and environmentalists everywhere to sign our petition to prevent open-air toxic bomb tests.

1. Help us oppose a proposal by the Livermore nuclear weapons Lab to increase outdoor tests at its Site 300 from 100-pounds of high explosives daily to 1,000-pounds daily (10x).

2. Livermore Lab lists more than 120 hazardous poisons that will be in these huge outdoor blasts, including beryllium, vinyl chloride, phosphine, hydrogen cyanide, and dioxin to name just a few.

3. These tests are for nuclear weapons, according to Livermore Lab.

Site 300 is Livermore Lab’s high explosives testing range located in the hills a mere 7,000 feet from the City of Tracy. Site 300 is on the U.S. EPA Superfund list of most poisoned sites in the country. Open-air blasts there used radioactive materials, such as Uranium 238, without commencing the appropriate cleanup of the detonation area (firing-table). Therefore, the proposed larger detonations can re-suspend radioactive particles in the soils.

CLICK HERE to sign the petition today.

This petition will be delivered to:

* The photograph in this email is an actual open-air bomb test at Site 300. If you look carefully, you can see buildings that are dwarfed by the size of the detonation. The toxic materials drift on the wind.
