Australian news, and some related international items

Why on earth is the nuclear issue taboo in Australia ?

text-cat-questionWhy on earth have  Australian governments, media, and corporate world been able to put it over the Australian public?  I think that the mainstream media are especially to blame?  Are they really that stupid?  Are their jobs really on the line?  So that they can just keep mum about what’s going on in South Australia, because it’s only a South Australian issue?

Only today The Ecologist has discussed the serious terrorism risk in transporting nuclear waste across the world. It is  serious concern in UK, USA, in Japan  – wherever nuclear waste is piling up.

Only in Australia it doesn’t matter, apparently. Doesn’t get a mention in the articles about what issues Australia faces in 2016.  No mention of this very dubious Royal Commission in South Australia. No mention that the ALP will be reviewing its policy on nuclear power.

No other country in the world has considered a nuclear waste importing industry. USA and Japan tried it on Mongolia, receiving a strong and definitive knock-back.

Because of course – it matters only to South Australia?

scrutiny-Royal-Commission CHAINThe Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission will release its Tentative Findings in Adelaide on Monday 15 February 2016.

“The Commission will then undertake a week-long public information program, visiting key regional South Australian cities and towns including Port Pirie, Port Augusta, Whyalla, Port Lincoln, Mt Gambier, Ceduna, Renmark and Aboriginal communities in the Far North and West Coast.

Commissioner Kevin Scarce said the release of the Tentative Findings would provide an opportunity to update progress and highlight how the community might comment on the report during a five week feedback period…..

“The Tentative Findings will be a document that reflects the Commission’s current thinking and the evidence behind it. The community then has five weeks to provide written comments on the findings and the evidence upon which it is based.

The Tentative Findings will be available to download from from 11am, February 15, 2016 or by contacting the office on 08 8207 1480. Feedback on the Tentative Findings can be provided to the Commission via its website, email or through traditional mail delivery. Details on this process will be on the NFCRC website soon.”
