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.

Nuke dump: What’s the rush?
@ 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

@ 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.”

Ministers lash out at council over gallery
Hear, hear, Trevor.


We won’t be there for His Royal Highness
As the public subsidises the trip, the public has the right to know.


Gallery statement by ministers mischievous: Councillor
Those two ladies do not realise that by insulting our elected Mayor and Councillors they are insulting the whole community.
Why can’t they admit they stuffed up the project by day one: What is an Aboriginal gallery without Aborigines’ approval?


Ministers lash out at council over gallery
All that done before the 2020 elections?


Council says ‘no’ to government gallery offer
Lets us have a fair dinkum debate on the subject. A formal debate usually involves three groups:
• One supporting a resolution (affirmative team), in this case Gunner and his supporters.
• One opposing the resolution (opposing team), in this case Aboriginal leaders and their supporters.
• Those who are judging the quality of the evidences and arguments and the performance in the debate, in this case rates payers as they will have to open their wallets for covering costs.
