- Sourcewatch focuses on the nuclear aspect of their work. Note to sourcewatch, the site - and in particular Australian information - could do with an update.
- If you go here, you will find information about PB and its involvement in the radioactive waste dump issue which targets the Northern Territory.
- Senators were asking questions last month on the nuclear dump report.
- Lee Rhiannon is critical of a PB report on opal mining: The Parsons Brinckerhoff report fails to properly assess the potential impacts of opal mining on threatened species and sensitive environments like the Ramsar-listed 'Narran Lakes Nature Reserve' and the wider Narran Lake wetlands.
