Subject: [CPEO-MEF] DOE budget analysis on TVC web site/New!
Dear peace and environmental colleagues:

Tri-Valley CAREs has a new report on its web site that will likely be of
interest -- and of great use -- to you.

WEAPONS ACTIVITIES," is an analysis done for Tri-Valley CAREs by Dr. Robert
Civiak. (From 1988 to 1999, Bob served as Program Examiner in the federal
Office of Management and Budget, where the DOE budget was within the scope
of his responsibilities.)

The report is concise, readable and "chock full" of valuable information on
the nuclear weapons activities proposed in the budget request that went to
Congress on February 7, 2000. For example:

(1) Did you know that only 10% of the DOE budget request is directly tied
to evaluation and maintenance of the existing arsenal? Check out our report
and learn what the other 90% will buy!

(2) Did you know that the DOE budget request contains 17 separate
"campaigns" that are largely activities to improve or expand capabilities?
Check out the 6 U.S. weapons types for which the budget requests
"improvement" monies!

(3) Did you know that the fiscal year 2001 cost for the National Ignition
Facility is hidden in various categories throughout the DOE budget request?
Check out the box at the end of our report to see how the NIF funding adds
