Marylia Kelley, Executive Director of Tri-Valley CAREs (Communities Against a Radioactive Environment), speaks about "Nuclear Weapons in Our Back Yard". She highlights current and proposed nuclear weapons funding. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will spend nearly 84% of its annual budget, this year, on nuclear-weapons activities. She talks about new projects proposed at the Lawrence Livermore Lab, including a plan to truck full plutonium bomb cores across three states from New Mexico to Livermore. They will run "shake and bake" tests that vibrates, heats and drop tests the nuclear bomb cores. They would then be trucked back to Los Alamos, N.M. She also talks about the controversial B61-12 Life Extension Program, a plan to create "interoperable" warheads for intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine-launched ballistic missiles.
