Webinar Series: Nuclear Weapons Budget

Everyone knows that Congress is under enormous fiscal pressure to make budget cuts. Even Pentagon spending is facing new scrutiny.  In this context, Congress should look more closely at Cold War-era, over-budget, delayed, nuclear weapons programs that won’t meet 21st century security needs.  Please join us for a webinar briefing series addressing select nuclear weapons programs.

Monday, June 24, 3pm (ET): Pull the Plutonium Pork – End MOX

Developing a disposition method for plutonium from dismantled U.S. nuclear weapons is important, but the Department of Energy’s current plan to make experimental fuel with this weapons’ plutonium is costly, dangerous and on the verge of collapse. It’s also siphoning dollars away from other nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear weapons cleanup priorities. Please join us to learn about the Mixed Oxide Plutonium Fuel Program (MOX) and what can be done to keep this failing program from gobbling more dollars while increasing nuclear dangers.

We’ll also consider what alternatives need to be developed to deal with plutonium from nuclear weapons.  Tom Clements, Southeastern Nuclear Campaign Coordinator for Friends of the Earth and Katherine Fuchs, Program Director of the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability will tell us how to pull the plutonium pork and develop needed solutions.“Pull the Plutonium Pork – End MOX” is part of WAND’s Nuclear Budget Webinar Series looking at specific nuclear weapons programs in particular need of Congressional budget cutting scrutiny.  Last month we started with: "Is it time to boot the B61 nuclear bomb?"
