    • That’s a good question. I was beginning to wonder if I am the only person who is noticing this matter. Now there seem to be two of us.

      • I honestly can’t believe they are bringing this up again. Why do we have to keep on fighting this battle?

  3. I think that it’s because the nuclear industry is in danger of dying. That would be unacceptable to governments that have nuclear weapons, or aspire to having them. It is very problematic, as for China and Russia, the State-run nuclear enterprises do not have to make a profit, and show themselves to be economically viable.

    For the “Western world” nuclear power is supposed to be a commercially viable enterprise. As the conventional nukes are not that, the pressure now is to convince the public that the “new nukes” will be economic. The global lobby got a big shock with South Australia’s rejection of the waste dump. But of course, they’re persisting, and so Australia’s involvement in new nukes is much desired.

    Australia always has to be subservient to the USA. With some reason, perhaps, as Australian governments look to USA for defence. So Australia will probably cave in on this one, especially as it is getting no media coverage etc,and the public is unaware.
