One Planet: The Legacy Of US Nuclear Weapons Testing In The Marshall Islands
On today's One Planet, we'll rebroadcast our conversation with Los Angeles Times investigative reporter Susanne Rust about the impacts of climate change and sea level rise on the Marshall Islands, where a concrete dome holds more than three million cubic feet of radioactive waste left over from the United States’ nuclear tests.
We'll also discuss the legacy of the US nuclear testing program in the Marshall Islands. Between 1946 and 1958, the US detonated 67 nuclear bombs on, in, and above the Marshall Islands.
