Understorey: Kintyre-nomics

Wednesday 30th July / presented by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

Media investigations into Rio Tinto’s selloff of Kintyre uranium mine to Cameco have raised questions about their social licence, but this hasn’t stopped the WA EPA giving conditional approval this week for uranium mining to proceed.  But with the price of uranium so low, what is the rush? Understorey asks Rod Campbell from Economists at Large to explore the enigma that is uranium exploration.

Dave Sweeney from the Australian Conservation Foundation and Mia Pepper from the Conservation Council also query EPA approval processes, whereby conditional licences are granted on the expectation that supporting evidence for quite crucial environmental engineering will be provided at a later date.  Understorey did invite the Energy Minister to join the program, but we were told by his office that Bill Marmion will not be commenting at this stage.

Episode 14 in the “Beyond Nuclear War and Radioactive Peace” series.
