Australia's Nuclear Horizon Documentary

by James Covell


Australia needs to have a serious debate about where it stands on all things nuclear. Australia has almost one third of the world's total reserves of uranium, more than any other country.

The government is hypocritical because Australia, along with 190 other countries, is a signatory to the NPT (Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty). However, it is selling uranium to India who is not a member of the NPT.

This documentary explores these issues and asks the question why isn't Australia at the forefront of this technology and the model regulator when it comes to all things nuclear.

Petition: Leave Uranium in the Ground!
by: Anne

Is this documentary for or against an expansion of the nuclear industry?

Nuclear power is not safe, not clean and leaves the U.S. with a deadly legacy, nuclear waste. Where is this to be stored? Not in my backyard.

Have we already forgotten Fukushima, even though this horrendous disaster is still contaminating our oceans? Nuclear proponents tell me that what happened at Fukushima was not caused by mankind, that it was a natural disaster. Of course it was, but if the man-made reactors were not there in the first place then the tsunami would not have ALSO caused a nuclear disaster.

They have even tried to convince me that what happened at Fukushima is a "GOOD THING" as it shows us how to best manage climatic disasters combined with nuclear reactor breaches.

Yet Fukushima is not being "managed", it is still leaking radioactive waste into the biosphere.
How many Fukushima's waiting to happen do we need on our planet?

Leave Uranium it in the ground!

Please add your name to our petition and share it far and wide.


Thanks and warm regards
Anne
