Reaching Critical Will reports: Project confronts the risks of United States’ land-based nuclear missiles
The Program on Science & Global Security (SGS), Columbia University’s School of Journalism, Scientific American, and Native Princeton are launching a project looking at the human and environmental risks associated with the new US Sentinel nuclear-armed land-
The MISSILES ON OUR LAND aims to provide information that everyone in the United States, and especially the communities living closest to the missile fields, need to know so that they can understand and be part of the discussion as to the full extent of the risks associated with deploying the new Sentinel nuclear-armed missiles.

The researchers performed hundreds of nuclear war simulations to understand what would happen if the missile silos were attacked. They reviewed thousands of pages of Air Force documents, including the recent Sentinel Environmental Impact Statement, and conducted dozens of interviews in Washington DC, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, and New Mexico with nuclear weapons experts, military officials, and members of the public, including those living amid the nuclear missile silo fields.
