It has a lower environmental footprint than renewables because it is a dense form of energy. Uses less input materials, less land area and produces less waste. It is also the safest form of generation.

Labor should differentiate themselves by backing and leave the Greens in the land of unicorns.

Hypocritical as these elements are used in hybrids, EVs and wind turnbines.

3% of electricity demand is estimated to be coming from video streaming alone, expected to triple by 2030. In order to maintain current living standards, needs to be maintained/added. 100% renewables is feasible if we intend to live like hobbits in the future.

If you like science and you are not aware of this one, it’s worth trying out. A cracking episode which has nothing to do with nuclear energy but there are some distinct parallels. Bullish for

“the people who went back to live in the Chernobyl Zone, over the period of 25 years, accumulated about a CT-scan’s worth of radiation.” 🤯 We missed that part from

Turns out that building 10 EPRs would be sufficient to ALL of the Dutch electricity demand... We could do it in 10 years, and shut down our coal and gas plants much earlier than planned, reducing our carbon footprint with 900 Megatons...

Sarah, as a proud South Aussie, I am too all for no coal & reduced carbon output That to me = nuclear. You would have my vote if Greens used commonsense & supported nuclear Qld farmers should be able to grow sustainable & profitable cotton with the water they're entitled to

It means a significant portion of the electorate understands that high penetration VRE on it's own won't work. Something needs to do the heavy lifting and is the obvious choice (low environmental footprint & safe).

Which brings me to nuclear - a 24-hour news cycle cluster-f*ck. All it got. The best tech for proven decarbonisation - a stone to throw at your opponents. The most promising tech to maintain and sustain the power-based communities who lose from cutting coal - dismissed. Stupid.

Unfortunately you're completely out of touch with working Australians, particularly in central QLD. If you're serious about lowering emissions, you need to accept the 'Inconvenient Truth' ~ is carbon free and is a reliable base load power source ☢🌲🌻

Labor’s climate change hard line was almost 100% based on a deep wind+solar platform. Folks, wake up. That story is stale. Our grid is struggling because of a chaotic, unplanned move to VRE. This *is* true and people are *not* completely ignorant.
