A Maryland nuclear-watchdog group says Los Alamos National Laboratory should do a better job of keeping track of plutonium.
Various organizations involved in monitoring the weapons lab say they believe much of the highly radioactive atomic-bomb ingredient referred to in a new report is buried as waste at Los Alamos.
But authors of a report released Wednesday by the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research want managers of the federal lab to explain what it says are “major discrepancies” in accounts of plutonium at LANL.
