Nuclear Nudge: Everyone Talking About Nuclear Power After America’s Deadly Big Freeze

Shattered dreams, dashed hopes and heavy hearts are the order of the day amongst wind and solar acolytes – thanks to the avoidable energy disasters playing out in America and Germany, during a bitter northern hemisphere winter. Sure, there are a desperate few still hanging on to the hope that it will all blow over, […]

From Little Things Big Things Grow: Australia’s Nuclear Powered Future Starts With SMRs

STT promotes nuclear power because it works: safe, affordable and reliable it’s the perfect foil for those obsessed about carbon dioxide gas – because it doesn’t generate any, while generating power on demand. One of the feeble ‘arguments’ against it, is that nuclear power plants are of such vast scale that they take longer to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Adults Only: Australia’s Nuclear Powered Future Requires Common Sense & Political Maturity

  The best time to build a nuclear power plant was 20 years ago, the second-best time is today. Except, in Australia’s case, a group of hysterical intellectual infants managed to ban nuclear power plants, outright. Australia holds the world’s largest uranium reserves and, despite its shifting policy of limiting the number of mines and states […]

Australia’s Energy Crisis: High Time For Government to Grow Up and Back Nuclear Powered Future

  You’ve probably reached peak stupid when a troubled teenage girl gets to berate adults about global economic and energy policy, and a purportedly educated class sit awestruck, applauding in earnest. Greta the Fretter was front and centre in the (predictable) climate cult hysteria about the bushfires that have swept Australia this summer. Amongst renewable […]

Energy Essentials: Clean, Safe & Ever Reliable Nuclear Is The Obvious Choice

The well-worn meme about the dangers of nuclear power doesn’t stand first contact with reality. As Katie Tub details below, nuclear power not only delivers a reliable and affordable stream of electrons, it does so in a manner that’s a whole lot safer than anything else humans engage in. Katie tallies up the tiny number […]

Powering Ahead: Safe & Reliable Nuclear Power Obvious Answer to Clean Energy Future

Anyone gifted with our good friends logic and reason knows chaotically intermittent wind and solar can never work. Sunset and calm weather are both real things. Sensible Australians, facing a renewable energy inflicted power pricing and supply calamity have forced politicians to at least begin using the dreaded ‘N’ word in public: nuclear power generation […]

Atomic Reaction: Self-Inflicted Wind & Solar Debacle Means Australia Needs Nuclear Now

Sensible Australians know chaotically intermittent wind and solar can never work, forcing MPs to demand ever-reliable nuclear power, instead. True it is that coal-fired power provides around 80% of the electricity consumed among those states connected to the Eastern Grid (Queensland, NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia). But, as a result of the obscene subsidies […]
