To resuscitate the nuclear industry, its lobbyists must convince the world that they have the solution – to turn radioactive trash into a “valuable resource” – by the new magic “waste eating” Generation IV nuclear reactors.
But those reactors don’t exist. They might be dangerous. They’re astronomically expensive. They will be a terrorist target. And they themselves still leave a smaller amount of highly toxic, long lasting radioactive trash. And that trash is so highly toxic that it requires a large storage space.
But what if – what if – the nuclear industry could convince a far away country that it could make $squillions byimporting radioactive trash?
And gee whiz – the nuclear industry would pay up front to set up the new gimmicks (Australia could pay them back later for these).
Australia could be the salvation – of the world’s most toxic, dangerous, and unaffordable industry! Bingo!
