Abolition 2000 – Global Network to Eliminate Nuclear Weapons

The International Panel on Fissile Materials (IPFM) has launched its
new blog, “Fissile Material” http://www.fissilematerials.org/blog
providing news and analysis of military and civilian stockpiles of
highly enriched uranium and plutonium, the key nuclear weapon

The reduction and elimination of fissile materials and control of
their production is critical to nuclear weapons disarmament, to
halting the proliferation of nuclear weapons, and to ensuring that
terrorists do not acquire nuclear weapons.

The blog tracks key developments in production and use of plutonium
and highly enriched uranium, industrial and political decisions
concerning these materials, as well as their impacts on international
security, safety, environment, and economy.

The blog is maintained by members of the International Panel on
Fissile Materials (IPFM), including Alexander Glaser, Yves Marignac,
Zia Mian, Pavel Podvig, M.V. Ramana and Mycle Schneider. Opinions
