Australian news, and some related international items

Australia’s Nuclear News at the start of 2016

a-cat-CANWell, there isn’t much, it would seem.  And yet, and yet. I gaze into my magical witches globe, and what do I see?  Why , it is Kevin Scarce, and the entire Australian nuclear lobby, feverishly spinning a web of confusion for the report, (due on 15th February) of the South Australian Nuclear Fuel Chain Royal Commission.

What they want, is want they wanted before the charade even started – Australia to decide to be the first country in the world to announce itself as the world’s nuclear toilet. But, more than that, it’s the underlying imperative to set up the entire nuclear fuel chain in this country. South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill no doubt thinks that this will save his political skin.  We await what will be a tome, or should I say tomb? of doublespeak.

On February 15, Dr Helen Caldicott will be speaking in Adelaide on this issue, (prior to setting off for St Louis County, USA, where there continues to be a nuclear waste pollution and fire threat drama)

Also, bubbling along quietly, residents  strengthen their opposition to proposal for Lucas Heights nuclear waste dumping in their area.  Meanwhile, solar and wind energy initiatives are happening.

I will continue to examine the Submissions to the Nuclear Royal Commission, with extracts on my website  Particular emphasis on the pro nuclear ones.
