Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

Another week in nuclear news Australia

It’s getting hard for comedians, to compete as far as international relations go, with real life becoming more ridiculous. Politicians in Norway and USA are recommending Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize. All sorts of reactions to the much vaunted “Nuclear Summit” between Trump and Kim. My own favourite was Trump’s own proud boast about not preparing for the summit – he makes decisions “by touch and feel”.

Accelerating Sea Level Rise is Being Driven by Rapidly Increasing Melt From Greenland and Antarctica.  Leaked UN draft report – world is on track to exceed 1.5C of warming.

NUCLEAR

Donald Trump alienates America’s allies, raising the question “Should Australia get its own nuclear weapon?”

Australia’s Maralinga Nuclear Veterans unrecognised – (Government strategy – wait for them all to die?)

Nuclear industry bigwig Erica Smyth gets Queen’s Birthday Award – don’t it make ya sick!  (the one who REALLY deserves recognition is Dr Helen Caldicott)

Federal Nuclear Waste Dump Plan for South Australia.  Why is nuclear industry puppet Resources Minister Matt Canavan not considering Leonora , Western Australia, as nuclear waste dump?    Centre Alliance Senator Rex Patrick exposes wider flaws in the Australian govt’s targeting of South Australia as nuclear waste dump.  South Australian site selection for a national radioactive waste facility is a “sham”, as Western Australian private project is revealed.

Government assessment of proposed Kimba nuclear waste dump area is a farce.

More Submissions to the Senate Inquiry on Nuclear Waste Dump Site Selection Process.:

Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) agreement with IAEA on enhanced protection for uranium workers.

CLIMATE.  Australia not doing its fair share on carbon emissions. Graham Readfern exposes the climate denial group “The Australian Environment Foundation“.

Aboriginal issues. Historic Northern Territory treaty agreement  means ‘the old way is finished.

RENEWABLE ENERGY     AEMO sees rooftop solar trebling in 10 years, batteries rising 10-fold.   Sunny days ahead in Mayo with investment in community solar.  Energy retailer greed backfires, as consumers switch to solar, batteries.  Who should control household rooftop solar and batteries?  State-based renewable schemes “critical” – especially under NEG.
