Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

Climate and nuclear news merge this week

News media seem rivetted on Hurricane Florence now affecting USA’s Carolina states.  Meanwhile there’s much less coverage of the much greater Typhoon Mangkhut afflicting the Marshall Islands, Guam, and soon the Philippines and Chinese coast.

Hurricane Florence, though now downgraded to Category 1, still threatens at least 9 nuclear waste sites and at least 12 operating nuclear reactors.

The Marshall Islands, already having radioactive leaks, are even more threatened, with the nuclear waste tomb located there.

Crisis of heat across the planet.   Scientists are now establishing the links between climate change and these extreme events.

AUSTRALIA

CLIMATE CHANGE is taking centre stage today, as, Trump-like,  our new Prime Minister Scott Morrison pronounces that we will meet our Paris commitments “in a canter”. Alas, that’s a lie. In reality, Australia is on track to miss Paris climate targets as emissions hit record highs.  Australia is going backwards on climate change. Australia stands to REALLY lose face on climate change at coming international summits.

Senator Matt Canavan ridicules climate health report, days after climate health expert wins Liberal safe seat. 68% of Australians want govt to set genuine emissions targets to meet our Paris climate commitments. Queensland government climate strategy stresses the health impacts. Doctors speak out on climate change.

Adani coal company’s groundwater bores investigated  amid claims they were sunk without approval.

Darebin Council, Victoria leads the way on climate change action.

Australian Communities Foundation Divests $90 Million From Fossil Fuels.

NUCLEARFlooding Dangers to proposed Nuclear Morgue in South Australia.    Ship loaded with Australia’s nuclear trash arrives at Cherbourg, France. Nuclear waste returning to Australia is really High Level Waste.  South Australian MP Dan van Holst Pellekaan  on plan to store radioactive trash in rural South Australia.

Tony Abbott – the mad monk, and Ziggy Switkowski are spruiking nuclear power – again Senator Cory Bernardi believes in nuclear power, but doesn’t believe in climate change. Anonymous pro nuclear “engineers” lobby Canberra ministers and premiers.

RENEWABLE ENERGY.

Julian Assange‘s future safety hangs in the balance.
