Right now there is a plan to ship up to one-third of the world’s high-level radioactive waste and bury it in South Australia.

This plan would impact Australians for the next 300,000 years.

It would enable aging nuclear reactors around the world – now under pressure to close because of their intractable waste problems – to stay open for another decade – more risk and more waste.

Let’s tell South Australian Premier Weatherill not to open Australia’s door to the world’s dirty and dangerous radioactive waste. We should not prop up this declining industry for a few more years and impose its waste on generations of our children to come.

Muckaty Tradiditonal Owners fought against a plan to dump waste on their country.

Muckaty Traditional Owners united against a plan to dump radioactive waste on their country, and won.

There’s an organised campaign for an international waste dump in Australia, an expensive “consultation” and social media campaign which presents the plan as if it’s a done deal. We need to counter this push.

The future for Australia – and the world’s – energy needs is renewable, not radioactive. Energy from the sun, wind, and waves is abundant and will never run out. It doesn’t pollute the air we breathe or the water we drink. Nuclear energy is dirty, dangerous, expensive and belongs in the past.

After seven decades of commercial nuclear power operations, not one nation has a final disposal site for high level waste and the sector is strewn with failed projects, timeline delays and massive cost overruns.

The global nuclear power sector is dying out due to public opposition, extreme costs and the rise of renewable energy.

Nuclear waste is like zombie waste – it remains undead.

Will you sign our petition to send a strong message so Premier Weatherill knows Australians don’t support South Australia storing radioactive waste from all around the world?

Together, we can ensure that South Australia’s future is bright, not glowing.

Just tax the upper 10% and the companies they invest in and get on with providing the revenue necessary to produce energy from renewables. Geesh…what a useless, harmful idea—storing nuclear waste for tens of thousands of years.

The appropriate place for high-level nuclear waste is in the vicinity of the nuclear plant that produced the waste, in high-quality above-ground dry storage. That way, those who have benefited from the energy produced will have an incentive to maintain the integrity of the waste for however many thousands of years it takes. Sticking it in the ground in the desert is not a solution, except from an ostrich perspective.

Nothing on earth is worth this risk and eternity of pollution and storage. Get a grip. If we refuse to store it, they will inevitably get to the point that they can’t use it, being back up with their own waste. Stop it, now!
