Nukewatch brings critical attention to the locations, movements, dangers, and the politics of nuclear weapons and radioactive wastes. Join our staff and volunteers in raising awareness and taking nonviolent action to address the nuclear dangers that threaten current and future generations.
Nuclear Heartland, Revised: A guide to the 450 land-based missiles of the United States
Nukewatch’s new book chronicles the history of U.S. land-based nuclear weapons as well as the decades of efforts by peace activists toward their removal. The book is a revised edition of the original Nuclear Heartland, published by Nukewatch in 1988 when the land-based nuclear arsenal numbered 1,000. The updated version reminds readers that 27 years after the end of the Cold War, the intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) system, now at less than half its former size, remains on alert throughout the Plains states with its underground missiles ready to launch—even though land-based missiles have been declared useless, dangerous and ripe for elimination by activists as well as high-ranking military and political officials.

Trillion Dollar Trainwreck
Our friends at the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability (ANA) published an important report in April 2016 as Congress began debating the FY2017 budget, which contains significant increases for nuclear weapon programs. Trillion Dollar Trainwreck highlights Life Extension Programs, proposed new production facilities, and other projects at Department of Energy (DOE) sites. As ANA’s report argues, most of them are completely unnecessary for national security, and all of them are mismanaged, behind schedule, and wildly over budget. Download a pdf of the report here.
