Nu­clear way to go

The Sunday Times - - YOUR SAY WA -

Hav­ing re­cently seen a TV pro­gram cen­tred on the is­sue of nu­clear power, I found my­self im­bued with the no­tion that it would be both pru­dent and wise for Aus­tralia to em­brace nu­clear power in the in­ter­ests of our global re­spon­si­bil­i­ties on cli­mate change, and in the in­ter­ests of us, the end con­sumers.

It ap­pears that na­ture has in­deed blessed this great land of ours with a so­lu­tion to cheaper power prices, while pow­er­ing this na­tion, lit­er­ally, in an en­vi­ron­men­tally safe and re­spon­si­ble way. I also re­called how in re­cent years there has been a spike in heat­wave in­ci­dents in Ja­pan.

Could th­ese heat­waves be a direct re­sult of Ja­pan’s move away from nu­clear power since the Fukushima melt­down? Just a thought.
