Warning: Australia is talking to accept radioactive contaminated debris from Fukushima.(オーストラリアの元大臣がフクシマの汚染がれき受け入れを検討し始めた!)

"The Australian" reported that Australia is talking to accept radioactive contaminated debris from Fukushima. I recommend you to pay attention with this news if you are planning to go Australia.

Australia 'ideal' for Fukushima soil

A HOWARD government minister has entered the nuclear-waste debate by arguing that Australia should accept radioactive debris from the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

Former sports minister Andrew Thomson said the move would help break a deadlock in Japan that is jeopardising recovery efforts from last year's March 11 tsunami and nuclear meltdown.

His comments come after the Senate's approval of the Muckaty Station site in Northern Territory as a nuclear waste dump -- and new Foreign Minister Bob Carr's remarks backing atomic energy in Australia -- reignited debate on the issue.

Because of a last-minute Greens amendment, the Muckaty site cannot accept waste from abroad, but Mr Thomson said the vast deserts of Western Australia and South Australia were perfect spots for the Fukushima waste.

In Japan, no prefecture has agreed to house the hundreds of thousands of tonnes of waste from the world's second-worst nuclear tragedy and it is piling up in temporary storage sites obstructing reconstruction efforts.

...Most of the waste consists of contaminated soil and debris removed during clean-up efforts from areas just outside the 20km exclusion zone around the plant and is only mildly radioactive.

Mr Thomson, who now works for law firm Minter Ellison in Tokyo, said Australia could offer "ideal places to dispose of this debris and store it safely".

"This stuff is only mildly radioactive, it's not going to harm anyone, but the last place you want to store it is Japan -- it's just too crowded," he said.

"Western Australia has benefited greatly from Japanese demand for iron ore and base metals and South Australia is launching a major uranium export industry. It's only fair and reasonable if we propose to sell more uranium to Japan in future that we should offer such help now when Japan really needs it."

Mr Thomson told The Australian his proposal related only to the debris, not the spent fuel or other nuclear waste from Fukushima or any other plant.

The former minister said that, in return for storing the Fukushima waste, Australia should receive more funding from Japan to ensure the construction of the troubled Oakajee port and rail project in WA, thereby unlocking the mid-west iron region.

The former minister and chairman of junior miner Athena Resources acknowledged he had a vested interest as Athena may one day use the port, which has hit problems with cost overruns but may be rescued by Mitsubishi.

瓦礫拡散の政府の動機が「東北以外の地元議員の利益誘導」や「東北へ落ちる巨大な公共投資への嫉妬」だと僕は考えている。
オーストラリアの動機は日本へのウラン輸出継続なのかも知れない。

コメントありがとうございます。妥当な線だと思います。全ては理解していませんが、もう少し深い話もあるようです。

こんにちは。
突然なんですが、私はこの9月からオーストラリアに住みます。
そこで気になったのが、この記事です。
オーストラリアはいつから、福島第一原発事故の瓦礫を受け入れるのでしょうか?そして、メルボルン、アデレードは放射線量が高いという噂を聞くのですが、実際のところどうなのでしょうか?
