Transforming the U.S. Strategic Posture and Weapons Complex for Transition to a Nuclear Weapons-Free World

NRDC is a member of the Nuclear Weapons Complex Consolidation Policy (NWCC) Network, a collaboration of six national and regional groups. This NWCC study provides the roadmap for a large and swift reduction in the nation's nuclear weapons and the sprawling government complex that develops and produces them. The study outlines the case for a tenfold reduction in the nation's active nuclear weapons stockpile, to 500 deployed nuclear warheads by 2015, supported by a weapons complex reduced from the current eight sites in seven states to just three sites in two states, Texas and New Mexico.
