Australian Left Review

Abstract

The First Report issued by the Ranger Uranium Environmental Inquiry headed by Mr Justice R.W. Fox has given anything but the green light to the mining and export of uranium. Indeed, far from encouraging any “ go-ahead", as mining interests and some of the less reputable media would have us believe, the Fox Report has properly concentrated on “ the hazards, dangers and problems of and associated with the production of nuclear energy” . While the Commission's recommendations lack the clarity and vigor that one' would have desired, there is no disputing the fact that the Commission has accepted the main thrust of the evidence submitted to it by the opponents of nuclear power.
