Remember Hiroshima August 6th
I watched a TV program yesterday which was well-timed. It was about Helen Caldicott, the Australian doctor who has for decades wanted to save the planet from nuclear disaster. Her passion continues unabated despite the often lack of interest and the uphill battle to be heard. I met her a few years back when she spoke to an audience at the Geelong Hospital, mainly medical staff, and I was mightily impressed. Some people these days find her single-minded approach too much, even shrill, because she will not take no for an answer. However her message is still timely - when someone mutters that the Australian government is interested in putting a nuclear station near us - at Avalon or Point Wilson, just across Corio Bay! No way! I still think we should leave uranium in the ground.
