the spread and reversing the growth of nuclear arms.
Nuclear Control Institute, founded in 1981, is a research and advocacy center
for preventing nuclear proliferation and nuclear terrorism. Non-profit and
non-partisan, NCI is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3)
organization supported by philanthropic foundations and individuals.

Active both at home and abroad, we play a watchdog role and
engage governments and industry, international and public-interest
organizations and the media in our work. Our track record indicates an impact
on decisionmaking that far exceeds what might be
expected of an organization of modest size.
In 2003, Nuclear Control Institute was reorganized into a Web-based program operated by its founder and president, Paul Leventhal. An archive of about 300 catalogued boxes of NCIs papers, accumulated over a quarter-century of operation and supplemented by Mr. Leventhals earlier U.S. Senate papers, has been established at the National Security Archive, an affiliate of the George Washington University Library. A word-searchable electronic archive of NCIs core documents over this period is also being established on the NCI website.

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.
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. ....

videotapes, speeches, papers, programe & more!
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.
STILL A NUCLEAR THREAT
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.
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.
STOP TRADE IN BOMB GRADE URANIUM.
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?
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?
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?
