Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

To October 1st – latest on nuclear and climate Australia

For a change, I digress from the usual themes.  While the media fixes on Trump’s and Kim’s nuclear threats, a lot of other things go on quietly. For example, the Trump attack on workers’ rights, –on worker safety, – on public health and environmental protection.  – on refugees,  Much as I dislike joining in the media fervor for watching Trump, it becomes almost a necessity, because we are witnessing the most extraordinary dismantling of all government policy for the public  good.  It is as if it’s all happening under the cover of our angst about North Korea.

The rise of Germany’s right wing party, adopting the Trump tactics, has brought a fascist element into the German Bundestag, and signifies the new importance of populist politics in Europe.

1461 scientists speak up for saving Australia’ oceans

AUSTRALIA

Apologies – all Australians. I cannot be  a patriot, because I’m doing this stuff now, while the FOOTEE final is on. Sacrilege!

NUCLEAR. 

CLIMATE.  Australia needs a massive switch to renewables, if it is to meet its Paris climate commitments.   As Australia’s greenhouse emissions soar, Pacific islanders despair of its backward climate policies.   Did Australian govt reject China’s climate change action initiative?    National Party President Larry Anthony runs a firm that lobbies for coal industry !  Northern Australian Infrastructure Facility likely to fund coal rail line, but not coal mine itself.

ENERGY.   Six international academics refute the attack on renewable energy by Ben Heard and others.  South Australia’s Tesla big battery switched on. Yes, Mr Prime Minister: there IS an answer to all your energy problems – it’s wind and solar. South Australia’s network of charging stations for electric cars. Some recycling of lithium already going on in Australia.
