Australian news, and some related international items

Is there an “upcoming review of environmental protection laws under which nuclear power is banned.”

Steve Dale  No Nuclear Waste Dump Anywhere in South Australia, January 29    Does anyone know about this “upcoming review” of the environmental protection laws? It might explain a recent uptick in nuclear propaganda activity recently..

This fragment from a recent Daily Telegraph article (hidden by paywall) “Mining sector pushes for nuclear option to lowering Australia’s energy” –
“… The Minerals Council of Australia has seized on the upcoming review of environmental protection laws under which nuclear power is banned.”

And from the Minerals Council web site article “Heatwaves proof positive Australia needs nuclear” –
“… The good news is the nuclear ban can be reversed with a single amendment to the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 – which happens to be due for review this year. ”

The Minerals Council article above contains the usual lies told to politicians, from the article – “Nuclear energy has changed significantly. There is now a family of new technologies – small modular reactors – leading the way in cost. These are readily deployable and produce zero emissions.” Nuclear energy risks hasn’t changed, small modular reactors don’t exist.
