So Simple: Fixing Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Crisis Easy As One, Two, Three

Solving Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity means killing subsidies for wind and solar and kickstarting nuclear power, by removing the ban that prohibits it. As Rafe Champion details below, there are three easy steps that would resolve the current debacle: killing off the subsidies for intermittent power generation; adding a capacity market to the […]

Anti-Nuclear Knuckleheads: Time to Scrap Australia’s Idiotic Ban on Nuclear Power Plants

  Australia holds the world’s largest uranium reserves and, despite its shifting policy of limiting the number of mines and states that have banned them, is the world’s third-largest uranium exporter. That Australia, among the world’s largest uranium exporters, doesn’t rely on nuclear power astonishes those from the 30 countries where you’ll find nearly 450 nuclear reactors currently operating – […]

Getting Serious About Serious Power Generation: China Leads Global Nuclear Power Push

Any student of economics wondering how important reliable and affordable electricity is to economic growth and industrialisation, need only look at China. The CCP may not be the flavour of the month at the moment, but its role in China’s economic success can’t be dismissed so readily. In less than 25 years, China has dragged […]

Rank Hypocrisy: Climate Warriors Not Promoting Nuclear Power Simply Can’t Be Serious

In a post Covid world, anyone railing about carbon dioxide gas and not promoting nuclear power sounds positively unhinged. If CO2 really was about to destroy the planet, Extinction Rebellion, Greta and her worshippers would be talking about switching to nuclear power like their lives depended on it. Instead, for reasons that escape the logical […]

Jobs First: Australian Workers Unite to Slam Unreliable Wind & Solar and Push for Reliable & Affordable Nuclear Power

Workers unions have worked out that the key to reversing soaring unemployment is reliable and affordable power. One of Australia’s most powerful, the CFMEU has slammed chaotic wind and solar as too costly and unreliable to power anything – except virtue signalling egos. Instead, itys Victorian Mining and Energy Division has laid down an altogether […]

‘Green’ Cult Chief Finally ‘Sees The Light’: And It’s Powered by Nuclear Energy

  Extinction Rebellion’s pasty-faced and ghoulish-looking members aren’t renowned for their common sense on energy matters. But – in a road to Damascus moment – one of its leading lights, the aptly named Zion Lights has, indeed, seen the light. And it’s one powered by nuclear energy. Instead of dressing up like an extra in […]

Oh So Close: How Australia’s Nuclear Powered Future Almost Began In 1980

  That Australia, one of the world’s largest uranium exporters, doesn’t rely on nuclear power astonishes those from the 30 countries where you’ll find nearly 450 nuclear reactors currently operating – including the French, Americans, Canadians, Japanese and Chinese. Another 15 countries are currently building 60 reactors among them. Nuclear power output accounts for over […]

Planet Saving Power: Nuclear Power Cleanest & Safest Form of Energy on Earth

The fact that very few climate warriors are out there seriously promoting nuclear power, speaks volumes about what’s really driving them. If CO2 really was about to destroy the planet, these characters would be talking about nothing else but nuclear power, and how to deliver it to all and sundry. Instead, for reasons that escape […]

Grow Up Now: America Tells Australia to Get With The Program & Go Nuclear

The USA, the world’s largest nuclear power generator, has 99 nuclear power reactors in 30 states, operated by 30 different power companies, and in 2016 they produced 805 TWh. Since 2001 these plants have achieved an average capacity factor of over 90%, generating up to 807 TWh per year and accounting for about 20% of total electricity […]

It’s Time: Fixing Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Calamity Starts By Removing Ban on Nuclear Power

In the midst of a RE-driven power pricing and supply calamity, the only thing worse than talking about nuclear energy, is not talking about nuclear energy. Australia has never had a nuclear power plant, and in 1998 placed an outright ban on nuclear power generation. Which seems a trifle odd, given Australia is the world’s […]
