Alexander Downer’s plan for a radioactive South Australia

You’ve got to hand it to  former Liberal MP Alexander Downer.  In a week when everyone else is respectfully remembering the Japanese victims of Hiroshima and Fukushima,   – or at least tactfully shutting up about Australia’s involvement in the nuclear industry there – Downer comes out with blatant marketing of the nuclear industry. – C.M. 

Downer: Nuclear power makes cents – Alexander Downer, The Advertiser, August 01, 2011…..we could build a nuclear power station. Just imagine replacing the Northern power station at Port Augusta with a nuclear power station which would be pollution free. The uranium would come from just up the road at Olympic Dam, it could be enriched at a new enrichment plant at, say, Whyalla, the waste could be stored at the world’s safest location for long-term storage, near Woomera…..

To me, it all makes perfect sense.

If we were really ambitious, we would use these facilities to make the world a safer place….”
