On nuclear waste dumping: America’s Dept of Energy more truthful than South Australia’s Nuclear Royal Commission

scrutiny-Royal-CommissionDerek Abbott No High Level International Nuclear Waste Dump in South Australia, 4 Feb 17, Here’s the American DOE report on repositories. Notice it’s much more truthful than our Royal Commission report. For starters it:

(a) compares the disadvantages of different types of rock for a repository and there are many openly listed, and

(b) it openly mentions the tens of $billions needed in repackaging costs for the fuel. Our Royal Commission totally side stepped these points. https://www.energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2014/04/f15/DOE%20DispOptions%20R1%20Volume1%20Apr15.pdf

 Robyn Wood the repackaging and even the technical details about the casks was missing from the RC report. Wonder what they were hiding
 Derek Abbott They knew a jury would pick those things apart.    https://www.facebook.com/groups/1314655315214929/
