Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

Nuclear news this week – and 3 months till Paris Climate Conference

a-cat-CANThree months until the Paris United Nations Climate Conference – November 30 to December 11

The cashed up nuclear lobby will be there promoting themselves as the world’s saviour from climate change, and pollution.

They will base this claim on 3 lies:

  1. that new nuclear power will solve the wastes problem
  2. that low dose ionising rdaiation is harmless, even healthy
  3. that nuclear power is essential to combat climate change

I would love it if people would join  in examining and exposing those 3 lies.

For September the focus is on Lie No. 1

I see that the Nuclear Information and Resource Center has already a website for this:   http://www.nirs.org/cop21/dontnuketheclimate.htm

Much as I hate Facebook, I have started a Facebook Page:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/No-Nuclear-for-Paris-Climate-Action/1490419381255842 The more the merrier- perhaps.

Another area for study is – the Submissions to South Australia’s Nuclear Fuel Chain Royal Commission. As I plough through these at http://nuclearrc.sa.gov.au/submissions/?search=Submissions I find many excellent submissions for the public good.   I would be grateful to anyone who sends me a good extract from one of these. I publish selected extracts from the good ones on antinuclear.net . For example – today’s –ADELAIDE HILLS CLIMATE ACTION GROUP  unanimously opposes all nuclear industries.

Nuclear wastes: Importing nuclear waste is illegal in Australia. The Lucas Heights returning waste is an exception, due to legal obligations of the contracts with UK, France and Argentina.  Abbott govt soon to give shortlist of sites for Lucas Heights nuclear waste dump. What’s the betting that it will be South Australia, as the nuclear lobby regards it as a foot in the door for making that State the world’s radioactive toilet?

Western Australian Labor holds firm to nuclear-free policies. Australian uranium company Paladin mothballing uneconomic project in Labrador, Canada. Rosatom now selling uneconomic Honeymoon uranium project in South Australia.
