Understorey – Secrets and Half Lives: Muckaty, New Mexico and Fukushima

Wednesday 18th June / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

From Rum Jungle to Mary Kathleen, from Muckaty to New Mexico, there are ongoing questions about the safety of uranium mines and storage facilities of both low level and nuclear weapons waste.

Dave Sweeny, nuclear free campaigner from the Australian Conservation Foundation, and Dr. Gavin Mudd, environmental engineer from Monash, discuss the failure of these facilities to meet essential high standards, and their connection with similar governance failures at Fukushima.

Find out how kitty litter might cause deadly plutonium contamination (yes, it happened in the US!) in Episode #12 of Understorey’s Beyond Nuclear War and Radioactive Peace series.

Play Dave Sweeney ACF, Dr Gavin Mudd, Monash
