An alliance of more than 30 organizations in a Monday letter to Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm stressed that the next leader of the Energy Department’s nuclear cleanup office must be dedicated to environmental justice and be capable of making real progress.
The status quo at Environmental Management “will not get the job done,” the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability board president, Marylia Kelley, wrote, and “big and bold action is needed” at the uppermost levels.
“It is critical that the person who holds this office” – the assistant secretary for Environmental Management – “have a deep, genuine, and effective commitment to remedying the damage done to affected communities living near the highly contaminated sites of the DOE nuclear complex,” Kelley continued.
Environmental Management was organized decades ago to address the legacy of nuclear weapons development and other government-sponsored energy research: radioactive wastes, contaminated buildings, polluted swaths of land. Environmental Management oversees the Savannah River Site, the 310-square-mile reserve south of Aiken where plutonium was once produced.
The assistant secretary for Environmental Management – often referred to as “EM-1” – is a Senate-confirmed position. The post is currently held, in an acting capacity, by William “Ike” White, who previously served at the National Nuclear Security Administration.
Nuclear Ban Treaty: Resources & More Info
THE U.N. TREATY ON THE PROHIBITION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS
On 7 July 2017 – following a decade of advocacy by ICAN and its partners – an overwhelming majority of the world’s nations adopted a landmark global agreement to ban nuclear weapons, known officially as the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. It entered into legal force on January 22nd of this year, 2021, when the first 50 nations signed and ratified it.
Prior to the treaty’s adoption, nuclear weapons were the only weapons of mass destruction not subject to a comprehensive ban, despite their catastrophic, widespread and persistent humanitarian and environmental consequences. The new agreement fills a significant gap in international law.
It prohibits nations from developing, testing, producing, manufacturing, transferring, possessing, stockpiling, using or threatening to use nuclear weapons, or allowing nuclear weapons to be stationed on their territory. It also prohibits them from assisting, encouraging or inducing anyone to engage in any of these activities.

The last remaining effective arms control treaty between the United States and Russia, the New START Treaty, expires on February 5, 2021. The two trillion dollar plan to modernize US nuclear weapons has triggered a new and dangerous global nuclear arms race. ANA offers ten conservative actions the Biden/Harris administration can take immediately to reduce the nuclear threat, make the nation more secure, and save hundreds of billions of dollars.
