Speaker discusses nuclear weapons in our back yard

From page A7 | February 09, 2014 |

Marylia Kelley, executive director of Tri-Valley CAREs (Communities Against a Radioactive Environment), will speak about “Nuclear Weapons in our Back Yard” at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 16, at the Davis Friends Meeting House, 345 L St.

Her talk will highlight current and proposed nuclear weapons funding in light of supposed budget austerity. She will detail program expenditures slated for Northern California, where the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will spend nearly 84 percent of its annual budget this year on nuclear weapons activities.
Her talk will include new projects proposed at the Lawrence Livermore Lab, including a plan to truck full plutonium bomb cores across three states, from New Mexico to Livermore; run them through “shake and bake” tests that will vibrate, heat and drop test the nuclear bomb cores; and then put them back on trucks and return them to Los Alamos, N.M.

“Livermore Lab stands at a crossroad,” Kelley said recently from her office in Livermore. “Either the lab will further endanger our communities with ever more hazardous bomb projects, or it will seek a far different future as a ‘green lab’ devoted to civilian science initiatives.”
Kelley’s talk will cover nuclear weapons programs underway at Livermore Lab and at the Los Alamos Lab in New Mexico, including the controversial B61-12 Life Extension Program, a plan to create “interoperable” warheads for intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine-launched ballistic missiles.

She will discuss her belief in the need to move toward abolition of nuclear weapons on local and global levels and what can be done to promote that goal. The website for Tri-Valley CAREs is www.trivalleycares.org.
Refreshments of soup and sandwiches will precede Marylia Kelley’s presentation.
