Documentary on Downwinders and how the cast and crew of the movie "The Conquerer" were exposed to fallout.
The Trump administration’s budget request for 2021 has its priorities backward. Rather than expand the nuclear weapons budget at the expense of everything else, the United States could meet its goals with a much leaner nuclear force, leaving more money for the programs that will actually make the country safer.
According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the explosion that took place on August 8th at a remote base concerned the propulsion system of a liquid-fuel rocket engine and no dangerous substances were released. But within minutes, the nearby city of Severodvinsk reported a spike in radiation (in a report that has subsequently been removed from the city’s public information site). Additionally, it was widely reported that a village near the base would be evacuated … before that evacuation was officially denied. And The Moscow Times reported that, in addition to the two immediate deaths in the explosion, a hospital in the Arkhangelsk region received three injured men who were “naked and wrapped in translucent plastic bags.” Subsequent tests indicated that the doctors who treated those men had signs of exposure to the by-products of Uranium-235.
Boise, Idaho • Atmospheric nuclear weapons testing exposed more states and more people to radiation fallout and resulting cancers and other diseases than the federal government currently recognizes, Western governors said.
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Atmospheric nuclear weapons testing exposed more states and more people to radiation fallout and resulting cancers and other diseases than the federal government currently recognizes, Western governors said.

Lawmakers champion the expansion of RECA to cover New Mexicans and Native Americans affected by exposure to radiation during the Cold War and World War II
Life on Earth faces two existential threats: the climate crisis and nuclear weapons. Both threats are closely linked and mutually reinforcing. With the world in flames, the climate crisis is, even for its fiercest deniers, impossible to ignore. However, the vast majority of people do ignore how this situation worsens the risk of nuclear war and why nuclear disarmament is more important today than ever.
Northrop Grumman and Republican members of Utah’s congressional delegation said the United States is all-in on a nuclear arms race involving new weapons and technology. But not everyone believes it’s the right course.
Iran recently exceeded the limits on uranium enrichment set out in its nuclear deal with the U.S. and five other countries. Iran’s move was in response to the U.S.‘s renunciation of the same deal last May.
The United States government conducted nearly 200 atmospheric nuclear weapons development tests in the deserts of Nevada, from 1945 to 1962. White Pine, Eureka, Lander, Lincoln, Nye Counties, and portions of Clark County were all adversely affected by those tests, so much so, that in 1990 the United States put into effect, The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA), as an apology and monetary compensation to individuals who contracted certain cancers and other serious diseases as a result of their testing.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States plans to test a new missile in coming weeks that would have been prohibited under a landmark, 32-year-old arms control treaty that the U.S. and Russia ripped up on Friday.
In June 2019, Kazakhstan takes over the Chairmanship of the 48-member Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) from the current chair Latvia.
“The United States believes that Russia probably is not adhering to its nuclear testing moratorium in a manner consistent with the ‘zero-yield’ standard,” Ashley said in a statement at an arms control forum held recently at the Hudson Institute (Reuters). He added that Russia has probably been doing low-level nuclear testing, which violates the CTBT.
SALT LAKE CITY — More of the radioactive waste stockpiled since the 1940s in three states could be headed to Utah's commercial disposal site in Tooele County under a new change in how the waste is classified.
In a move that will roll back safety standards that have been observed for decades, the Trump administration reportedly has plans to reclassify nuclear waste previously listed as "high-level" radioactive to a lower level, in the interest of saving money and time when disposing of the material.
The 2017 nuclear test was up to two thirds more powerful than the U.S. intelligence community estimated.

ST. GEORGE — A program set up to financially compensate people who lived through the era of nuclear weapons testing in the Nevada desert in the 1950s and 1960s will soon come to an end.
The law designed to help compensate 'downwinders' in southern Utah and elsewhere who were exposed to nuclear fallout during 1950s weapons tests is scheduled to expire in 2022.
The Trump administration is moving to ease radiation regulations, on the premise that small doses are good for you.
ucked into the recent spending bill that was passed by Congress is a line item for $100 million for NASA to develop nuclear thermal rocket engines, according to a recent article in Space News. The space agency has dabbled in nuclear rockets off and on since the early 1960s. However, NASA plans to conduct a flight demonstration by 2024 is new.
The fate of the INF treaty has politicians and ordinary people worried on every continent. I am also concerned, and not only because I signed that treaty with former U.S. President Ronald Reagan in Dec. 1987. These events are yet another manifestation of the dangerous and destructive trends in world politics facing us today.
WASHINGTON — A federal judge on Thursday denied a request by Nevada officials for a temporary restraining order against the federal government in hopes of preventing more plutonium from being shipped into the state.
