Nuclear Weapons Storage

If you’ve ever wondered about where nuclear weapons are stored, here is an infographic that shows where they are (nothing too specific; no interest to spies here). There’s general info about the number of weapons storage sites per country, and a breakdown of US storage locations.

Like most folks, I think that any nuclear weapons are too many; it’s all but unthinkable that they will ever be used in war again. And I find the graph of the declining numbers of stockpiled weapons heartening. It’s one of the good things that the first President Bush did with the START treaty, and that work was continued by President Obama (with the New START treaty).

Full disclosure: this was pitched to us as a paid ad placement. But I thought that it was interesting enough in itself that I agreed to put it up.
