Nuclear Policy

About

The Nuclear Policy Project focuses on three issues: strategic integration of nuclear material management into nuclear arsenal reductions and ending production of nuclear explosives, accountability of the nuclear weapons states to their citizens relative to social, environmental, safety, and health impacts, and structural collapse of Cold War nuclear institutions.

Reducing the Risks

The nuclear crisis in Japan has raised alarming questions about the safety of nuclear power plants in our own backyard. There’s good reason for all of us to be worried.

According to a new analysis by the Institute for Policy Studies and the Project On Government Oversight, our nation’s stockpile of radioactive spent fuel is stored in such unsafe conditions that the lives of millions of people who live near nuclear reactors in this country are at risk.
