Understorey: A Nuclear Winter’s Tale

Wednesday 21st June / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

As the world meets this week in New York to consider a treaty banning nuclear weapons, and South Korea turns its back on nuclear power, state Labor’s Minister for Mines Bill Johnston announced yesterday that four uranium mines would go ahead. But can Western Australians ignore possible consequences, its extended producer responsibility?   Bilbo Taylor, from Western Australia’s Ban Uranium Mining Permanently, responds. Meanwhile, climate and public health scientists are actively concerned that even a “limited” nuclear war would create a nuclear winter that would threaten civilisation, put two billion people at risk, and destroy countless ecosystems. Understorey hears from Mary Olson, a senior radioactive waste policy specialist; Dr Michael Mills, from the US National Centre for Atmospheric Research; and Associate Professor Tilman Ruff, from the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health and the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.     (Photo: A.Glamorgan)
