It’s such a simple idea – so simple that our clever experts, politicians, academics, media – can’t grasp it.
With religious fervour, the nuclear lobby tells us there’s nothing to worry about, as with the help of God, our descendants will cope with the toxic radioactive mess that nuclear activities are building up around the world, and that Australia is building up at Lucas Heights.
Simple people think – “It would be best to bury deeply the toxic wastes that now exist, and to stop making any more”.
And they are right.
Fools think – “Australia can import nuclear wastes, and we personally can make a lot of money, and our own children and grand-children will thank us” (just as they will thank us for climate change.)
