Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

The nuclear industry is a global threat, just like climate change and the pandemic – theme for April 21

Leaders of nations are slow to wake up to what many normal people have known – we share this planet. Its big problems are global, and need to be addressed globally.

The pandemic is a telling illustration of this – squabbles over how it started, and over vaccines. But leaders are slowly realising that economic life will not really get going while Covid-19 is raging in other countries.

Climate change is an even more serious example, with its effects not all predictable. But poor countries take the brunt of what has been caused by rich countries.

Somehow, inexplicably lurking in the background is the terrible danger of the nuclear industry.

The nuclear industry is in a way more dangerous, more sinister than the other two – because it is very corrupt, and is managing to put it over governments – posing as the ”solution” to climate change.

A global cabal of toxic masculinity, this crooked industry is run by nuclear ‘cowboys’ – keen to take the safety risks, the weapons proliferation risks, the apocalyptic war risks, not only on earth but in space, and on other planets. And they manage this confidence trick at tax-payers’ expense. The nuclear nations beef up their weapons ‘ industry, with public funds that are not going to the health and well-being of their populations.

Fortunately there are international organisations that work for global action – a good example being ICAN – the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.

It is time for the nuclear-free organisations to work together, globally, to counteract the nuclear industry. That’s a hard call, as the nuclear industry has the money, the influence, the ruthless crookedness to impose its will on governments and media.

The nuclear free movement, with its predominantly indigenous members, lacks mopney and influence. Still, the nuclear-free movement has some powerful advantages – intelligent expertise, integrity and determination.
