Glad you agree, oyasumi.
THE Yimbys of the Northern Lands Council are nobly demonstrating leadership that should inspire not just the people they represent - the Aborigines of the Northern Territory - but all Australians.
Yimbys? Where do they live? Right now, only in the Top End, but, hopefully, as Australia wakes up to the facts of nuclear power and waste management, they will wander across the continent.
Yimbys are a welcome antidote to the selfish Nimbys who clog up most debate about infrastructure projects, as we saw locally with the confrontational protests against East-West tunnel plans last week.
Nimbys are the not-in-my-back-yarders who enjoy the convenience of major infrastructure but wish to live nowhere near it; Yimbys adopt a commonsense approach and say "yes".
In 2007, the Northern Lands Council said yes. It volunteered a 1.5 square kilometre site in the remote Muckaty Station, whose 2380 square kilometres of land had been returned to the locals a decade earlier, to be used for a vital piece of infrastructure. It is an almost immeasurably small spot on Australia's surface amid some of the most nutrient-diminished, unproductive land on our planet. Its barren nature stems from a valuable characteristic: a lack of seismic activity.
Imo. the Rods don't look that bad in the Videos and the already removed
Rods looks very normal...
Australia has capacity to take world's N-waste, and we should
But "nuclear waste" is a total misnomer, it can all be re-used. Even the "nasties" can be made use of, such as in the Americium Power Source.
Hey Fuku Fans, dropped by to ask an open question of you all. I know someone who knows someone that was stationed in Japan one month after the disaster. This person is concerned about the levels of radiation they absorbed and what resources if any are available to help determine the dose received. They were active monitoring detail on and off base, thinks they may have been exposed to more than most and would like to find out more about physical condition and what advocates rights groups may exist.
Any links you guys have about US involvement overseas or contacts, please U2U me...

Mostly, the waste is uranium and plutonium,
both of which can be reused. Right now, it looks like the Yukka Mountain disposal site will be abandoned as the technology to reprocess all the waste comes on line.
Spent nuclear fuel
This Rods was inside while the big Earthquake and the Tsunami,
According to the Fraggles like you this Rods must be molten
burned or at least Handicapped but they are not and this is
a valid Proove that your Information ((burned Fuel)) is deadly wrong
I hope you realize that Australia is the biggest Producer of Uranium Ore
and Yellow Cake?
No, i don't see any "destroyed Racks"!
