Tri-Valley CAREs (Communities Against a Radioactive Environment) calls all CA residents and environmentalists everywhere to sign our petition to prevent open-air toxic bomb tests.
1. Help residents oppose a proposal by the Livermore nuclear weapons facility to increase outdoor tests at its “Site 300” near Tracy, CA from 100-pounds of high explosives daily to 1,000-pounds daily (10x).
2. The Lab lists more than 120 hazardous poisons that will be in the outdoor blasts, including beryllium, vinyl chloride, phosphine, hydrogen cyanide, and dioxin to name just a few.
3. These tests are for nuclear weapons, according to Livermore Lab.
Site 300 is an 11-square mile, high explosives testing range owned by Livermore Lab. It sits in the hills near the highly-populated city of Tracy, CA with a population of 89,000. Site 300 is listed in the U.S. Superfund list of most poisoned sites in the country! The experiments have previously used radioactive materials, such as Uranium 238 in their open-air detonations without commencing the appropriate cleanup the detonation area (firing-table).
