Prime Minister John Howards nuclear taskforce has released a draft reportwarning thatAustralias demand for electricity will double in the next 45 years. And more than two-thirds of the countrys existing power plants would need to be upgraded or replaced over that timeframe. One of the reports recommendations included the rapid construction of a series of nuclear reactors, starting in 2020, which would supply one third of the nations power. Arid Lands Environment Centre campaignerNatalieWasley said that could be disastrous forCentral Australia. She said: Any nuclear power station would generate high-level radioactive waste. Some of these have half-lives of 10,000 years. Australia does not currently have any nuclear power stations and intermediate-level nuclear waste produced by the reactor at Lucas Heights in New South Wales is treated in France. But that situation is due to end in 2011 and the waste will then have to be treated in Australia. The Commonwealth Government is in the process of selecting one of three potential sites for a Radioactive Waste Management Facility in the Northern Territory to store intermediate-level waste, overriding Territory legislation in the process. Ms Wasley said storage of highlevel radioactive waste could be forced on the Territory in a similar manner. Assumption She said: People argue that Cen tral Australia is suitable because it is geologically stable. But thats just an assumption. Nobody has actually looked into this. High-level radioactive waste needs to be stored in repositories 500m to 1200m underground. Irene loves it here Irene Nyereyere says there was more stress in Zimbabwe. Picture: ANGIE BASDEKIS By NICK CALACOURAS NURSE Irene Nyereyere from Zimbabwe loves working in Alice Springs Hospital. Its so well equipped, she said: Zimbabwe is still a developing country, so we have some of the equipment which is here, but not enough. By the end of the day, you get stressed because youre in a situation where you cant help many people. The 43-year-old nurse arrived in Alice Springs in August and has been working in the Special Care Nursery. She said: Im very happy here. Theres a lot more job satisfaction. Here, the children get their primary health care much earlier. Nok Natlaya Ganjanasentorn came to Australia from Bangkok to improve her English but ended up working as a Nurse in Intensive Care. She said: Working as a nurse here is not as hard as it is in Bangkok. In Thailand, its very busy and sometimes we dont have time for breaks. Irene and Nok are two of the hospitals international staff who are celebrating Diversity Week. Hospital general manager Vicki Taylor said: Our staff represents almost 40 countries around theworld. This gives them a chance to highlight their culture.
