Webinar: With Acclaimed Historian Peter Kuznick, Greg Mello, and community members in Los Alamos
July 22 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm CSTFree
It is significant and important that this event is in Los Alamos, where the largest investments in the world are being made to produce a) additional, and b) new nuclear warheads.* (*Other countries are also investing, but here in the U.S., thanks mostly to the uniquely weak bargaining position of government relative to contractors, the work is hyper-expensive and fraught with problems. See “Structural Features Making NNSA an Unusual Federal Agency,” White House memo for VP Biden, 2016. In our view, LANL has no rational role in pit production; LANL’s huge new mission is entirely a political product. See “ NNSA’s effort to restart plutonium warhead “pit” production will cost more than the Manhattan Project. Why is NNSA trying to build two pit factories at once — one that is adequate, and one that is not?,” press backgrounder, May 27, 2023.)
