Comment on Nuke dump: What’s the rush? by Evelyne Roullet.

@ Hal Duell: Thank you for this excellent constructive post. The Centralian Advocate is not our own, and I do not trust their information having experienced first hand how they do the news. It is a biased newspaper and do not often quotes its sources “to ensure that only waste from Australia is stored there”.
How will we do this? Were we told about the The BBC Shanghai? a cargo ship, unwanted in Indonesian waters? http://www.globalindonesianvoices.com/23422/nuclear-waste-ship-will-be-denied-entry-to-indonesian-waters/
I found those fact not by The Centralian Advocate (ah! ah!) but by reading international media http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2015/10/16/world/environmentalists-decry-vessels-deficiencies-aussie-bound-nuclear-waste-ship-leaves-france/#.VnHzaL85OC8

@ Fred the Philistine: As for the proposed site you are preaching to a convert.


Nuke dump: What’s the rush?
Food for thought: Sydney’s Lucas Heights reactor is set to ramp up nuclear medicine production to meet world demand. Therefore creating more waste.
Lucas Heights, New South Wales, produced patient nuclear medicine. The nation’s only nuclear reactor currently produces 10,000 doses a day for 250 hospitals around the country.
Construction is underway on a new production plant which ANSTO estimated could lift production capacity of nuclear medicine to up to 13 million doses a year.
Unless with have a population growth spiralling or we all become cancer patients, why the need for increasing the doses if not for monetary gain?
ANSTO has increasing domestic and global demand for our nuclear medicines, therefore needs to increase capacity to safely manage associated by-products, need to prepare for the availability of national waste facility.

@ Jimmy Cocking: Thank you for the link. But I believe we debating for nothing, as the “for: and the anti will never agree.” I hope I will not see the day, view my advance age, where we will say: “We told you so.”

A troubling snapshot of disadvantage
Statistics have no uses if they do not come with real practical solutions.
I am certain we can see all those problems without having the exact numbers.
We know the kids should be off the streets at night: Solutions?
We know they must have a safe environment and healthy ways of life: Solutions?
We know about no education – no good job – poor mental health: Solutions?
I would like to say to all those highly educate professors / doctors / researchers what my parents and grandparents used to tell me: “Do not come to me with your problems if you have not a solution to offer.”


2020 poll: Can Territory Alliance be a political force?
@ Dr Who Posted January 10, 2020 at 9:41 pm: “Good God, when will the NT have some new fresh up coming politicians who want to advance the Territory instead of recycling these same old hacks that need to be put out to pasture?”
When the voters decide to give a go to new faces, new names.


Chance for NT Government to get cracking on fires
Yes Erwin, and I read it with a great interest, but it was mainly for the countryside.
What also concern me is the town and suburbs.
Some yards are a fire hazard and not every street has fire hydrants and those cannot be used if the services are out of town.


Chance for NT Government to get cracking on fires
As fires continue to burn across the states of Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania the time has come for our so called leaders to prepare for the same eventuality.
Do we have an emergency plan? Could council workers take notice of the residential gardens which could be a fire hazard not only for themselves and their neighbours in the same manner that they clear / cut trees hanging over a fence because it supposedly a danger for pedestrians?
The fire and rescue services will not be able to cope with bushfires and town fires.

Street kids: What cops can do
End of year is the time for parties! I suggest to parents of all creeds, skin colour and social statute, do not to look for a baby sitter for your children if they want to go out. Let them loose in the Mall.
Assistant Commissioner Narelle Beer and Dale Wakefield will take care of them while you have great time.
