  • Don’t Let Hanford Cleanup Be Delayed

    The US EPA, US DOE, and WA State Dept. of Ecology are proposing to push back several deadlines for Hanford cleanup, some indefinitely. These changes to the Tri-Party Agreement, the document that governs cleanup at Hanford, would delay cleanup of the Central Plateau more than a decade. This area was where nuclear materials were processed during plutonium production. The Central Plateau was scheduled to be cleaned up by 2024. Under the proposed changes, no final cleanup date is given. At a recent public meeting, WPSR members, including Tom Buchanan (pictured), voiced their concerns about the proposed changes.

    Read more about the changes and how you can submit your own comments to help push the Tri-Party Agencies to stick to their timelines.

  • Remembering the bomb that changed the world

    To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, WPSR members David Barash and Judith Lipton wrote an op-ed that appeared in the Seattle Times. “Seventy years after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the world is still not a peaceful place. There is no evidence that possessing more than 16,000 bombs and warheads have made the nuclear states any more secure than their non-nuclear counterparts.”
