ABSTRACT

Stewardship of U.S. Nuclear Weapons   [open pdf - 261KB]

"My topic today is stewardship of U.S. nuclear weapons: Where we are. How we got there. And where we are going. Because of the congressional debates that are likely next year about a comprehensive test ban treaty and the interest in nuclear weapons reductions, I thought you would want to know how the Department of Energy and its laboratories are going to approach nuclear weapons in the coming decades. […] Then I will tell you the solution we have crafted -- the stockpile stewardship program. It is a point solution, but it turns out to have a lot more dimensions than one point. It is still a work in progress. In fact, you will be part of the discussion and debate on how that work in progress evolves."
