Bob Hawke On Uranium
Once upon a time I often repeated the slogan ‘think globally, act locally’. It is perhaps this concept that Bob Hawke was promoting when he suggested last night that Australia become a dumping ground for the world’s nuclear waste.
According to ABC Online he said,
“Australia has the geologically safest places in the world for the storage of waste.”
“What Australia should do, in my judgement, as an act of economic sanity and environmental responsibility, say we will take the world’s nuclear waste.”
I reckon it is a good idea – but would like to see a feasibility study. Now which environment group will be the first to condemn it?
