Public Comments on Draft (PEIS) Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement

All four proposals in the draft envision the continued production of nuclear weapons and the maintenance of an enduring stockpile. The only question appears to be how many weapons to build and where to build them.

It is crucial that the public show up to this hearing and make their standpoint known on the record. However, if you are unable to attend, the link below and attached document (pdf) contain information regarding where to send your public comment.

I, for one, would like to point out that at least 90% of the radioactive material should go to scientific research, if not 99.9 (i suppose we gotta keep at least 1 bomb for deterrence). The level of illogic that comes from having the capability to blow up the entire planet 100 times over as opposed to even just one is so grand that the entire planet of Vulcan would shake their heads in a baffled display of shame and outrage. That is, if Vulcans had feelings.
