Reader Response - Nuclear view

FORTUNATELY Premier Carpenter won’t be around for the years it will take Australia to recognise that uranium waste is safer stored in Australia than in other areas of the world. He will just prolong the debate because Australia possesses the world’s safest storage technology, which is synroc, and has the best geological and political stability necessary to guarantee future generations’ safety. Can the premier tell Western Australians where Iran obtained the materials they are enriching to nuclear weapon standards? Does he guarantee his grandchildren they will not have an air-conditioner for 12 months a year if the world cannot turn to nuclear power as their only alternative to carbon based generators? Does he understand that Australia’s climate will not only be affected by what Australia does? Does he believe that wind generation could replace coal or nuclear power when the existing farms cannot be operated in isolation because of their very significant and short cycle variation in output? Just where will he obtain the power to run banks of his saltwater desalinators that will clog our beaches? When I contacted him about the tides of the Kimberley and hydrogen as the future fuel for our cars, he was singularly disinterested; no alternatives just negativity. The debate in Australia need not commence with localities of the future generators; it needs to focus on Australia being a lessor of manufactured nuclear fuel rods, thus increasing job opportunities for Australians and the people of the world.
