LIVERMORE, California, January 29, 2013 (ENS) – Environmental, legal and nuclear experts from California and New Mexico are holding a community forum Wednesday to reveal the “potentially illegal” new federal government plan to ship plutonium bomb cores across three western states.
The forum will be the first public discussion of this proposal by the U.S. Department of Energy to move the plutonium bomb cores from the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico to the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California.
The Livermore and Los Alamos National Laboratories are the nation’s primary nuclear weapons design facilities.
