An increasing number of countries are expanding their nuclear generating capacity, while environmentalists are still split over the issue.
Goronwy Price, environmentalist, adventurer and businessman will be standing for EFN-Australia in the Bradfield by-election on December 5. Your first opportunity to vote for substantial climate action !
The Age yesterday released an Age/Nielsen poll demonstrating that 49% of Australians believed nuclear should be on the nation’s list of potential power options, with 43% opposed.
This is a major change from a level of just 38% in a 2006 Newspoll, with 51 per cent opposed.
According to the most recent Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change**, nuclear has greater potential for greenhouse abatement by 2030 than any other energy source, and is second only to hydroelectricity in least cost per tonne of CO2 saved.
With all the political talk about emissions targets, it is hard to get a solid reference point. Here is one such reference. Taking the long term sustainable emissions level from the Stern Review (UK Government 2007), we find that a 97% emissions cut will ultimately be required in Australia’s case.
