Abstract:

These vugraphs summarize the main findings of a three year study, Plutonium and Highly Enriched Uranium 1996 World Inventories, Capabilities and Policies. According to the three nuclear experts who co-wrote the book, tons of weapons grade plutonium and uranium produced over the last 50 years are inadequately monitored, risking misuse by rogue states and terrorists. The study concludes that there is too much nuclear material thats too easily obtainable. The authors urged President Clinton and Russian President Yeltsin to launch an international initiative to strengthen controls on weapons grade plutonium and uranium.
