Parity in Democracies in the Atomic Age The vestigial veil of secrecy relating to governments' nuclear activities is unbeneficial to national security. This veil of secrecy has created a less secure world and destroyed the health of one or more nations.

The West's Game: Nuclear Hypocrisy The U.S., with its latest subcritical test, is playing a cunning game with very self-serving ends: it can carry out just about any nuclear act it wants, then point attention to the defensive reactions by those who legitimately fear us (the victims) and we manage to convince the global majority that the Irans and North Koreas of the world are the madmen.

My Hour of Silence How can one persuasively argue against subcritical nuclear experiments, which are technically allowed by the CTBT but still violate the 'spirit' of that treaty? Perhaps the answer - and dilemma - lies in framing the argument in terms that we all know and are, unfortunately, familiar with in our lives: Abuse.

U.S. CONDUCTS SUBCRITICAL NUCLEAR TEST On September 15, the U.S. DOE conducted a subcritical nuclear explosive experiment under the NNSS (Nevada National Security Site) in Nevada, formerly known as the Nevada Test Site. Subcritical tests are conducted in underground tunnel chambers and involve less-than-critical amounts of plutonium that are bombarded using conventional explosives to create some of the physical conditions of a nuke blast.

Obama's Oil Gusher Science Team Has "One Good Idea" A team of 'nuclear scientists' chosen by our Energy Secretary Steven Chu met at BP's crisis center this month and came up with "one good idea" for stopping the oil gusher. They wouldn't tell what their idea was. But the only idea - good or, more often, bad - that has ever come from the minds of a bunch of nuclear scientists is a nuclear one!

How to Squash the Baneberry of the East a la Dorothy Gale If the overwhelming concern is about another country's nuclear bombs going off and hurting other people, then we should focus on nuclear testing, which has killed more people worldwide than even the holocaust in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Sermon for the downtrodden activist Nearly every one of us has at one time or another been unheard; our voices and our points of view, as part of our contributions to causes greater than ourselves, have been drowned out, ignored, or pushed aside. This sermon is for them.

DOE saying it's protecting us is a hard pill to swallow Because of 9/11, the Department of Energy has decided to not allow online public access to documents that ironically are drawn up to adhere to a federal environmental act that heavily encourages public participation. The DOE says it is doing this to 'protect' us whereas the DOE is undermining American's most influential environmental policy act.

Going subcritical: a nuclear test is a nuclear test is a nuclear test Since 1997, the DOE has aimed a subcritical testing 'gun' at the entire world that has fired blanks over and over again and the impact is no different than when a madman runs around aiming a gun at other people and firing blanks. The effect is de-stabilizing.

Speak now or for the next five years hold your peace The Nevada Test Site, formerly the 'proving grounds' for 100s of nuclear detonations through 1992, continues to this day host nuclear simulation experiments. Yet these activities, often associated with nuclear contamination, were never evaluated in the 'permit' that the American people signed off on in 1996. Americans should insist that a new permit process (a site-wide EIS) be initiated for the Nevada Test Site.

Say No to the Divine Strake The Pentagon agency that is planning the "Divine Strake" for the spring has come clean about their test. Sort of.

Divine Misgivings As most of the ash and dust settles and the rest continues to float along the jet stream, I won't doubt what the Pentagon will do next. There will be an analysis and a fancy presentation. This time their audience will be the U.S. Congress.

Divine Misgivings I will be in Hawaii when Divine Strake goes off. Before then, I will watch patiently as the Pentagon agency that is planning the test, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, wriggles and writhes through the course of legal, administrative and grassroots obstacles.

Divine Strake for Thanksgiving Sometime between this year's Thanksgiving and next, turkey feed and cranberries, mushrooms and salads, and ginger and sage will be growing in soils with a few added 'nutrients': radioactivity from the Divine Strake test.

Stairway to Divine Strake On Thursday, a U.S. government lawyer speaking on behalf of a Pentagon agency sponsoring Divine Strake told a federal judge that she could not promise 60 days' notice before the test would be carried out sometime in mid-2007.

Survive the Demise There is no justice. Or fairness. Or democracy. Or law. Or order. There is only a pack of feral, aristocratic human beings that are seeking dominion of the human race at any cost while the rest of us – the domesticated ones – sit crouched, huddled, cold, starved, scared, and witless.

GI Joe vs Albert Schweitzer When Albert Schweitzer ultimately decided to voice his concerns about the seriousness of the consequences of radiation and the testing of nuclear weapons, he called upon the world in his "A Declaration of Conscience" to muster the courage "to leave folly and to face reality." Yet, nearly 50 years later, we haven't left folly. We are still blurring the lines between play and reality.
