1980 spill of nuclear poisons – a warning note for Kimba area

Potential nuclear spill a cause for concern, Port  Lincoln Times, TY BRUUN  22 Jan 2020,  I hope individuals from all over the Eyre Peninsula attend the protest rally (Kimba, February 2) to demonstrate the nuclear waste proposal affects more communities than just Kimba.

For those who are on the fence, please consider this realistic scenario.

In 1980, a truck transporting nuclear waste along the Old Pacific Highway outside metropolitan Sydney rolled over, spilling 4.5 tons of chemicals including Caesium 137 and Americium 241.

The scene was attended by police officers. They were exposed to the radiation and became violently ill at the scene.

The following events bring doubt as to whether country SA could ever possess the expertise to deal with a nuclear waste accident, given this could not be sourced in the higher skilled population of Sydney.

The officers’ requested for assistance – it was refused on the grounds that no-one with nuclear waste spillage expertise could be sourced to prevent anyone else suffering radiation exposure.

The two officers and a council worker could only bury the waste beside the highway.

The sick officers tried to have the waste spillage formally acknowledged and cleaned up properly and spoke to the media.

It is truly questionable that, given this incident has still not been resolved despite other road workers becoming ill and construction of a new highway through the burial zone, the federal government will actually adequately resource the country town of Kimba (or anywhere else along the nuclear waste transport route) so that we can deal with this sensibly foreseeable emergency situation with radioactive waste.

I urge you all to consider what it would be like to wish your grown child a good day at work as they head off to deal with a radioactive spillage along Eyre Highway.

Is this really the legacy you will leave your children?

Remember, it has happened before; it is not over emotional or fear mongering to consider such scenarios, it’s rather sensible.https://www.portlincolntimes.com.au/story/6587692/potential-nuclear-spill-a-cause-for-concern/?fbclid=IwAR2NWWHE9A_5Uqog5nrcvC_o_3VukGgmUFcEfaxjiPMJ20r6edQVdcAEIsI
