Institute for Energy and Environmental Research
IEER was founded in 1985 to further public involvement in and control over environmental problems through the democratization of science. IEER provides policy makers, the media, and community and grassroots leaders with technical training and scientific and policy analyses on environmental, energy, and security issues. IEER work has made important contributions to campaigns to stop nuclear weapons production, improve cleanup of nuclear weapons production sites, help get justice for sick nuclear weapons workers, and stop commercial nuclear reprocessing and the use of plutonium fuels in commercial nuclear power plants.
