Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

Australian and overseas nuclear news this week

Growing number of Asian countries ravaged by fresh coronavirus waves.   World Health Organisation updates its coronavirus advice, acknowledging aerosol transmission as the major source of infection.  Covid-19: hopes for ‘Herd Immunity’ fade as virus hurtles toward becoming endemic.   Biden’s proposal to waive patent rights for vaccine production has raised quite a storm.


Climate change:  how bad could the future be, if we do nothing?

And now – to nuclear issues.  There have been a number of important articles this week, on nuclear weapons in space – the militarisation of space.  It’s ironic that a big news discussion has also gone on, about an ”out-of-control” Chinese rocket, that could have hit land and caused havoc.  Ever ready to put a comforting Western spin on the news, this incident was used by the media to show how very safe U.S. rockets are, in comparison with those reckless Chinese efforts.


Many space rockets planned, thousands of satellites, thousands of space debris –what could possibly go wrong?

AUSTRALIA.

Australia risks bringing on a nuclear war with China : Urgent need to change foreign policy. Nobel prize winner Beatrice Fihn urges Australia to join the Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty, as public support for it grows. Boris Johnson tells Morrison – ”Ditch coal and go nuclear”.  Gun totin’ gay-marriage opposing, sports-rorting Senator Bridget McKenzie leads the National Party’s push on behalf of the nuclear lobby. 

 Minister Keith Pitt – desperate times, desperate measures – to get Kimba nuclear waste dump.  Angus Taylor, Energy Minister – incompetent and ignorant – SO – VOTE HIM OUT.

INTERNATIONAL

Nuclear weapons have triggered a new geological era. The Fateful Choice: Nuclear Arms Race or Nuclear Weapons-Free World . Amidst Pandemic and Economic Sufferings, 2020’S Global Military Spending Reached Highest Level in Decades.      Amid Widespread Disease, Death, and Poverty, the Major Powers Increased Their Military Spending in 2020.

Faster glacier melting raises hunger threat.

Hypocrisy, climate bullshit, and the push for hydrogen+fossil fuels.

Bitcoin’s dirty little secret – its danger to the environment and the climate.
