Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

The Australian govnt and ANSTO classify spent nuclear fuel from Lucas Heights as intermediate-level nuclear waste.

Kim Mavromatis Fight To Stop Nuclear Waste Dump In Flinders Ranges SA, 31 Mar 19, Everywhere in the world, spent nuclear fuel is classified as high-level nuclear waste and it will remain radioactive for eternity. After 30 yrs, spent nuclear fuel is still 10,000 times more radioactive than uranium ore and will take 10 million years to reduce to the same radioactivity as uranium ore (Canadian Nuclear Authority). Yet the Australian govnt and ANSTO classify spent nuclear fuel from Lucas Heights as intermediate-level nuclear waste.
The Federal Liberal govt want to use South Australia as a dumping ground for high-level nuclear waste from Lucas Heights (and I suspect from around the world) and are using low-level nuclear waste as a smoke screen. We know how radioactive high-level nuclear waste is thanks to the Canadian Authority, but no one has told us how radioactive low-level and intermediate-level nuclear waste is?    https://www.facebook.com/groups/344452605899556/
