+ - Dump world's nuclear waste in Australia says Ex-PM Hawke->

Submitted by mdsolar
mdsolar (1045926) writes ""The former Labor leader added that Australia bore a responsibility to assist with the safe disposal of radioactive waste, given the ample space the country possesses.

“If Australia has – as we do – the safest remote locations for storing the world’s nuclear waste, we have a responsibility to make those sites available for this purpose,” he said.

Hawke based this conclusion on a 25-year old report made by Ralph Slayter, whom the former prime minister appointed as Australia’s first chief scientist back in 1989. According to Slayter’s report, some of the remote reaches of the Northern Territory and Western Australia could provide apt dumping grounds for radioactive waste.""
