Kimba’s aging population will hand the disaster of a “temporary” nuclear waste dump on to their descendants

Paul Richards  Nuclear Fuel Cycle Watch South Australia, 25 Aug 18,    The long-term target [of the nuclear-waste-dump-for-Kimba campaign] is Federal legislation that affects all emerging generations.

“The Federal Government has consistently misled Kimba residents about its intentions. Residents have been repeatedly told that the above ground store for long-lived intermediate-level waste^ would hold waste for several decades until a deep underground disposal facility is available,” Mr Green said
Most of Kimba’s residents are the Silent and Baby Boomer generation so are unlikely to see a deep repository built,

Furthermore, this group will never face the outcome of our future, and this is a serious matter of choice being made for thousands of generations, by so very few.
