Australian news, and some related international items

Australian Parliamentarians misled by Minister Pitt’s lies about nuclear medicine.

25 June 21, Contrary to Pitt’s information to the senators the legislation makes no reference to or distinction between ILW and LLW waste

His completely disingenuous claim that the facility at Kimba is needed for continued supply for medical has been strongly and knowingly rejected by numerous experts in nuclear medicine as the hospitals and clinics and institutes using nuclear medicine destroys the resulting waste themselves since most of it is low level with a very short half life

From some enquiries and general market research the government’s facility at Kimba would be lucky to get 10% of all the waste resulting from nuclear medicine in Australia 

In any case while there are well be over 100 locations in Australia they do not store nuclear waste since most of it is disposed of within a matter of days after it has been produced

How naive are our parliamentarians to blithely accept this misleading information without any proper expert  inquiry of an issue of such major importance to the whole of Australia
