Ronald Lehman special talk on nuclear arms control
In a special event, The Honorable Ronald Lehman and Mona Dreicer of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) will appear at UCOP to present a talk entitled “A New START: 40 Years of Strategic Nuclear Arms Control.”
The event will take place Thursday, April 28, 12 to 1 p.m. in Franklin Lobby 1 Conference Room.
Lehman and Dreicer will take a new look at the past, present and future of strategic arms control, which has evolved significantly in the past 66 years. Since its peak in 1967, the number of weapons in the U.S. nuclear stockpile has declined 84 percent to the lowest level since 1956. Many political leaders now ask, “Is even one too many?”
Lehman is director of LLNL’s Center for Global Security Research and, since 1996 has been chairman of the governing board of the International Science and Technology Center. Dreicer is LLNL’s Deputy Program Leader for Nonproliferation and Arms Control.
Please note: This special event will not be webcast.
