Recently, almost all perturbations in our nuclear weapons posture have been rejected as too risky. It is therefore surprising that, prior to Hellman's 2008 preliminary analysis, the baseline risk of our current posture had never been estimated. Because that analysis indicates the risk to be thousands of times greater than society is willing to tolerate with respect to nuclear power plants, in-depth studies are needed to either correct or confirm his preliminary findings.
