NT to become radioactive dump site

The Energy Minister Martin Ferguson has announced that the Government is supporting the Coalition’s plan to set up Australia’s first radioactive waste dump in the Northern Territory. The planned dump site is Muckaty Station, near Tennant Creek.

Australia’s first radioactive dump site

Australia needs a radioactive waste dump. That was a difficult fact for me to admit after I heard today’s news that Australia will very likely pass the bill to build its first one in the foreseeable future. There is a lot of fear surrounding the word ‘radioactive’, and the word ‘dump’ suggests that we will be digging a large hole in the ground, pouring the muck in and leaving it to wreak havoc on the environment while we turn a blind eye.
