Had a chuckle last night when I heard on ABC news that Australia has offered
to send 'nuclear specialists' to Japan to assist in the problems that
they're having with their power plants. Australia, which runs one tinpot
reactor that they purchased from Argentina of all countries, and which has
zero operating experience with power reactors.

I presume that the response from Japan would have been whatever polite
gesture diplomats use when they want to say 'thanks, but you must be
joking'.

** Is that what was really said?

Only reports I can locate suggest it is to help in the assessment of what
harm to the environment is likely and how to deal with that.

Always best to quote a link to any news story you want to discuss.

**For the record: I had a long chat with one of the scientists who works at
ANSTO. They are extremely happy with the choice of reactor.

Back in the early days of nuclear technology we had some very clever
boffins, probably a bit behind now.

Don't even suggest Ziggy Switkowski was in that category,  But then
again, sending him there might be a suitable punishment for the evil
he did as Telstra chief.
