Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

To 17 September – nuclear and climate news

It’s all sounding a bit same-same: nuclear posturing from Kim Jong Un and from Donald Trump. Trouble is – in our atmosphere of “nuclear brink fatigue’, it still IS getting closer to the nuclear brink.

I don’t know about you, but in my patch, Australia, well you just wouldn’t know that from Sept 20, the 10-page treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons will be open for signatures from any UN member state. No media coverage. It’s as if the thought of nuclear war just doesn’t matter. Hell, it could even be an acceptable idea, nowadays. Or maybe not.

Same-same on climate, too.  But again, not really, as the planet’s weather patterns change inexorably,  glaciers melt, and mainstream media covers the subject less than ever.

AUSTRALIA

Don’t get me wrong –  I’m all for  homosexuals having the same rights as anybody else, to choose the possible misery of marriage.  And I have already voted “YES”. But I wish that the media could also cover climate and the nuclear danger.

Whether or not Trump is sane, Australia will follow him into nuclear war.– Australian politicians’ mindless backing of Trump.

Australian Nuclear Free Alliance (ANFA) Black and White celebrate the 20 year anniversary of their continuing  campaign – keeping Australia nuclear free. Another liberal MP (Jane Prentice, Queensland) sucked in by the nuclear lobby. South Australia’s naval defence interests aiming for nuclear submarines, eventually?

Increasing risk of losing Great Barrier Reef.

ENERGY.  Australian government aims to get rid of Renewable Energy Target.  National Party  rallies against Clean Energy Target plan. What Audrey Zibelman and the Australian Energy Market Operator actually did advise the government.  Turnbull government grossly misuses report by Australian Energy Market Operator. Energy Security Board Chair says that properly managing Australia’s energy demand would remove the need for new power plants. Massive jump in solar energy roll-out means scarcity fears unfounded: council.
