DUMP PLANS FOR SA's NUCLEAR HIGH LEVEL DUMP
Retract the risky decision to push ahead with putting Australia's first
HIGH LEVEL NUCLEAR DUMP in SOUTH AUSTRALIA.
Don't risk 100,000 years of radioactivity if things were to go wrong as we all know accidents happen and nuclear is forever a hot waste product
Why is this important?
Fukushima and Chernobyl taught the world that nuclear accidents are very expensive and toxic for generations and leave horrific tragedy in their wake.
South Australian Jay Wetherill is currently pushing his Government's plans by using a publicly funded Education Campaign. He and his government are spending public funds to spin the ' it is all proven, scientific and safe' line in his current expensive roadshow.
His goal is to place a global HIGH LEVEL NUCLEAR RUBBISH DUMP for short term profit in South Australia.
He would like to place his own and South Australias' children's children's future at stake and just for money. Speculation and debate about long term finanncial cost / benefits of such an operation for a high level radioactive waste site is that it may prove to be a financial disaster. This is even if their is no nuclear leak, accident or clean up in tens, hundreds, or thousands of years time from today.
If Mr Wetherill and the ALP of South Australia succeeded and any of the transported and stored waste containers EVER leak in an unforseen event or are accessed by wrong hands or motives it will prove potentially environmentally catastrophic.
YES : SA needs smart new growth industries, not old outmoded nuclear plants spent nuclear waste in our back yard. NUCLEAR IS FOREVER Mr Wetherill- Just not here with toxic waste products please.
Let the countries and wealthy energy company's that made the problem find other ways and places to deal with it. We understand their are companies involved in making large money from the real and pressing need to get rid of nuclear waste, it also asists with selling more nuclear power stations in future but we dont want that problem in our home state.
As with Pangea back in the 90's the federal government met strong opposition and it stopped the project..
This is not a minor project of political short term consequence, this is a forever problem if your government succeeds in its wishes.
DUMP THE DUMP
