No national referendum on nuclear waste importing? Just shonky “citizen juries”

brainwash1Citizen juries to weigh SA nuclear dump

AAP on May 10, 2016 South Australians will be asked to take part in citizen juries to help decide whether the state should host a high-level nuclear waste dump.

A jury of 350 voters will be asked to produce a report in November outlining the community’s views on the proposed dump and other nuclear issues, with the government to outline its decision by year’s end.

The government will also launch an advertising campaign encouraging people to “explore the facts” on the nuclear fuel cycle, Premier Jay Weatherill told reporters on Tuesday.

  1. Anything they do is really going to have to be more appalling than appalling to in any way “compete” with the recent US high level fuel intermediate storage plan which is nothing but a parking lot with a fence and a gatehouse – apparently not even a cover- in West Texas. There will be another application in November – probably the same. For imported waste it seems that the US is moving toward decladding, dilution with filler, and burial in west Texas though burial takes more effort than just parking the waste.
