Proposed Plutonim Bomb Plant at SRS in South Carolina Draws Criticism from Public; NNSA's Nuclear War Plans Challenged

Abandoned plutonium fuel (MOX) buiding at Savannah River Site, coutersy High Flyer to SRS Watch – Proposed to be converted into SRS Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP), not for any concept of “deterrence” but for 4000 nuclear weapons to be used in all-out nuclear war

SRS Watch logo

SRS Watch is a non-profit organiation working on sound policies and projects by the U.S. Department of Energy, with a focus on the Savanah River Site in South Carolina

About 12 metric tons of surplus weapon-grade plutonium are stranded at SRS, in the old K-Reactor. No more plutonium should be brought into South Carolina

DOE's NNSA Quietly Plans for All-Out Nuclear War as Coronavirus Rages and Peace and Justice Demonstrations Grow; Plutonium Pit Production to Stimulate Arms Race

Given the escalating federal deficit and reorientation of national security due to the coronavirus, we will continue to vigorously challenge the funding and authorization for the Plutonium Bomb Plant.”

— Tom Clements, Director, Savannah River Site Watch, Columbia, South Carolina

COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA, US, June 3, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Numerous public interest groups and individuals have submitted comments critical of the U.S. Department of Energy’s unjustified proposal to expand production of plutonium “pits” – the core of nuclear weapons – to DOE’s Savannah River Site near Aiken, South Carolina. A flurry of comments were submitted on the proposed SRS Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP) as the comment period ended on June 2.

Comments were formally submitted on the National Nuclear Security Administration’s "Draft Environmental Impact Statement on Plutonium Pit Production at Savannah River Site; Aiken, South Carolina," which was released on April 3. Various groups submitted their own hard-hitting comments and solicited comments to be submitted by their supporters.

Commenters uniformly opposed plans to expand plutonium pit production into the terminated plutonium fuel (MOX) building at SRS, to produce 50 or more pits by 2030, called for preparation of an overarching Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) to review the need for pit-production expansion and impacts at a host of DOE sites. They also challenged the need for new pits for new nuclear weapons and for pit replacement in all active and reserve U.S. warheads. Additionally, groups questioned disposal of pit transuranic (plutonium) waste in the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in New Mexico.

Questions were raised about the intent of pit-production expansion at both SRS and Los Alamos National Lab (LANL), which appears to be to hold on to a massive nuclear stockpile of about 4000 nuclear weapons, undermining national security and in violation of disbarment obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Commenters questioned why NNSA is not reviewing reuse of pits, of which there are over 15,000 in storage at DOE’s Pantex site in Texas and why NNSA has been dragging its feet on congressionally required plutonium-aging studies. According to a 2007 report by the JASON group of experts, “Most primary types have credible minimum lifetimes in excess of 100 years as regards aging of plutonium.”

“It is heartening to see the volume of comments calling into question NNSA's claimed but unjustified need to expand nuclear weapons production to the Savannah River Site, not for deterrence but rather in order to keep the U.S. on the dangerous footing of fighting a large-scale nuclear war,” said Tom, Clements, director of the public-interest organization Savannah River Site Watch. “It is a bizarre and dangerous twist that NNSA has proposed to convert the failed MOX facility at SRS, once endlessly touted as pinnacle of nuclear non-proliferation, into a factory for proliferation and to stimulate a new nuclear arms race,” added Clements

Several groups are known to have solicited comments from their supports, including the South Carolina Chapter of the Sierra Club, Tri-Valley CAREs (Livermore, CA), Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance (Tennessee) and the Union of Concerned Scientists.

Groups submitting detailed comments include Savannah River Site Watch, Nuclear Watch New Mexico, Tri-valley CARES, Southwest Research and Information Center (Albuquerque, NM), Sierra Club and the League of Women Voters of South Carolina. A group comment was signed by over 40 non-governmental organizations, including several arms control organizations, and, notably, comments were submitted by Dr. Frank von Hippel, a highly regarded nuclear non-proliferation expert and professor emeritus at Princeton University.

“While SRS boosters have touted the SRS Plutonium Bomb Plant as filling the funding void created by the termination of the MOX debacle, public interest comments were centered on the lack of need for expanded pit production from a national security and environmental-impact perspective,” said Clements. “Especially in the face of an escalating federal deficit and reorientation of national security due to the coronavirus, we will continue to vigorously challenge the funding and authorization for the expansion of pit production by Congress,” added Clements.

Comments noted that pit fabrication at SRS could lead to yet more plutonium being stranded in South Carolina and production at the site of more transuranic waste and chemical waste and of low-level nuclear waste that could be dumped in unlined trenches at the site. “South Carolinians are tired of being a nuclear waste dumping ground and for that reason alone the pit-production project at SRS must be rejected,” said Clements of SRS Watch.

“Conversion of the MOX plant into a bomb factory is now estimated to cost up to $5 billion by 2030 but as NNSA is rushing the project without proper preparation it is expected that it will be a repeat of the MOX debacle, with massive cost overruns, lengthy schedule delays, chronic mismanagement and ultimate failure,” said Clements.

Savannah River Site Watch, Nuclear Watch New Mexico and Tri-Valley Communities Against a Radioactive Environment, all members of the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability (ANA), are pondering a lawsuit on the pit proposal for violating the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). (See comments for details.)

To underscore the importance of the pit issues, the magazine Arms Control Today for June 2020, released on to comment deadline of June 2, featured a front-page article entitled "Reconsidering U.S. Plutonium Pit Production Plans." The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists is also expected to soon publish an article on the controversial pit-production issue.

The $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for Navy Veterans and people who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos decades ago-and now have lung cancer.

"To ensure the best compensation results for a Navy Veteran or person with lung cancer-and who had heavy exposure to asbestos decades ago we have endorsed the remarkable lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste.

“Let’s Switch it Up…Do This Peacefully, Please!” Terrence Floyd (George Floyd’s brother) –1 June 2020

Major General Craig Whelden U.S Army (Retired)

By Major General Craig B Whelden, U.S. Army (retired)

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ —

In the summer of 1963, I was about to enter sixth-grade. My Air Force family had just moved from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Montgomery, Alabama. An all-black crew helped us unpack.

Seared into my memory is a moment when the crew chief (and owner of the moving truck) asked me to go to the local burger joint to buy lunch for his crew since they wouldn’t be served.

Elsewhere in Montgomery, I saw “White Only” drinking fountains and rest rooms, and experienced segregation in restaurants and on buses.
An unwelcome introduction to overt racial discrimination for a 12 year old.

That same summer, Governor George Wallace infamously stood in front of a schoolhouse door at the University of Alabama in an attempt to block two black students, Vivian Malone and James Hood, from enrolling.

Two months later, Martin Luther King keynoted the March on Washington on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial where he gave his famous “I have a Dream” speech.

A year later, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through non-violent means.

King gave a speech in 1967 at Stanford University which was prescient. In it, he said:

“…riots are socially destructive and self-defeating. But in the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it that America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice, equality, and humanity. And so, in a real sense, our nation's summers of riots are caused by our nation's winters of delay. And as long as America postpones justice, we stand in the position of having these recurrences of violence and riots over and over again.”

The recent murder of George Floyd shocked America, and it should. It requires swift justice and hopefully we are moving in that direction.

I do not – in any way – condone the violence and destruction that came in the wake of this tragic episode, but until we better understand and act on the underlying causes, we will – as King prophesized – repeat it over and over again.

We’ve come a long way since 1963, but not far enough. Changing our nation’s culture is hard. Really, really hard. Many are trying. I’m one of them. But it takes strong leadership – like Martin Luther King — at every level and on both sides of the racial spectrum and the ideological divide.

As we learn more about George Floyd, it appears that he was — in his own small way – trying to do his part, and it appears that his brother Terrence has picked up where George left off…
