Derek Abbott: thought on the connection between nuclear waste dump and nuclear submarines

abbott-derekDerek Abbott no high level international nuclear waste dump in south australia , 6 Oct 16   Thought for the day: Australia has clear ambitions for nuclear submarines, but doesn’t have the infrastructure or means of waste disposal to support them.

SA’s nuclear dump as a stand-alone commercial venture doesn’t financially add up. Therefore it seems to me the Royal Commission is a poor attempt to hoodwink the public in accepting infrastructure, which will open the door for nuke submarines that will then “justify” the dump’s poor financial position.

Once we are hoodwinked into it making a loss, the justification will be that we need it for national security anyway so the money is “well” invested.

Interesting coincidence that Kevin Scarce was in the Navy.
