We are glad to have you here. We invite you to explore the
  special sections of our enhanced web site for information on
  stopping the spread and reversing the growth of nuclear arms.

        Your comments on our new look
        & our content are appreciated.


1981-2001 Founded in 1981, the Nuclear Control Institute (NCI) is an independent research and advocacy center specializing in problems of nuclear proliferation. Non-partisan and non-profit, we monitor nuclear activities worldwide and pursue strategies to halt the spread and reverse the growth of nuclear arms. No Bomb! In particular, we focus on the urgency of eliminating atom-bomb materials (plutonium and highly enriched uranium) from civilian nuclear power and research programs.

Nuclear Terrorism Threat
Could terrorists build a bomb with stolen plutonium or
highly enriched uranium? Are reactors now adequately
protected against sabotage? Here's what the experts say.

NCI conference
To mark its 20th anniversary year, NCI convened
a one-day conference to explore the need for
nuclear power and its linkage with the
proliferation of nuclear weapons. ....

Plutonium & Reprocessing

Plutonium Disposition.
Getting Rid of Military Plutonium
Using plutonium from bombs as fuel for nuclear power
reactors invites theft by terrorists and outlaw states.
How to stop this latest attempt at plutonium commerce:
Directly dispose of plutonium by burying it with
nuclear waste deep in the earth.


All of Iraq's nuclear scientists are still
in place. None of the nuclear-bomb
components they built before the Gulf War
have been found. If Iraq could steal or buy
plutonium or bomb-grade uranium, Saddam
could have the Bomb in short order.

Nuclear Central

India conducted five nuclear tests.
Pakistan followed with five tests of
its own. Who's next? Check this
collection of the best on the Web
on this grave nuclear crisis.



With bomb-grade, high-enriched uranium (HEU), a student
could make a bomb powerful enough to destroy a city.
Low-enriched uranium (LEU) can't be made into bombs.
Which fuel do you want in university reactors?

Plutanic Ship
Radioactive Sea Shipments
Japan, Britain & France are beginning to ship plutonium
wastes by sea in containers that can't survive a sinking.
What can be done to stop them?

Plutonium Air Shipments
By the speck, plutonium can kill. By the ton, it will be
flown in casks that can't survive a plane crash. Why?

U.S.-China Nuclear Trade animation
China was the "single most important supplier of equipment
and technology for weapons of mass destruction" and a major
nuclear supplier to Iran and Pakistan in the second half of 1996,
the CIA recently concluded. Yet, President Clinton is preparing
to make the non-proliferation certifications required to clear
the way for U.S. sales of nuclear reactors and fuel to China.
Does nuclear trade with China make sense at this time?

 Is America's fear of nuclear power irrational?
