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.

 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.
