Hey Just My Two Cents Worth on the Environment

Quick post before I forget the thought.

Can’t believe the Gillard Government in Australia or should I say Labour Government. They want to bring in a carbon tax to help the environment but on the other hand want to build a Uranium mine (nuclear) in a town populated by Indigenous Australians and have no thought for the impact on it’s community and heritage. Strange, my thought is they would use the carbon tax money to help fund the mine and exportation of uranium to such countries as China, where Australia would loss track of the uranium and could be, I state could be used for mass production of nuclear weapons. I’m not an environmentalist, but can see the connection. Maybe I’m just being paranoid.

The region in the Northern territoy of Australia that is in question is the Muckaty region North of Tennent creek.

Here is an Article on the issue –  Muckaty nuclear waste plan is a bad deal, not a done deal

Some other articles on the issue:

So for this week that is my two cents worth on the environment.
