Full-Steam Ahead: Nuclear Power’s Exponential Growth In Power Hungry China

No country serious about growth, industry and jobs is seriously relying on wind and solar power. China is building coal-fired power plants, hand over fist. And its efforts to build nuclear-powered plants are on the same trajectory. China Plans To Dominate The Global Nuclear Energy Push Oil Price Haley Zaremba 3 June 2020 China has […]

Michael Shellenberger: Sorry, But I Cried Wolf on Climate Change

If climate change is a problem, then wind turbines and solar panels aren’t a solution: heavily subsidised and unreliable wind and solar are an economic and environmental disaster. When climate alarmists managed to hijack energy (and with it economic) policy it was a case of lunatics taking over the asylum. In every breath they exhort […]

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 […]

Australia’s Completely Nuts: World’s Third Biggest Uranium Exporter Maintains Ban On Nuclear Power Generation

Australians fed up with crushing power bills are talking about a nuclear powered future, like there’s no tomorrow. Having recognised that climate alarmists will never relent in their crusade against carbon dioxide gas – being a proxy for eradicating cheap, reliable and affordable coal-fired power – anyone interested in a future where hot showers and […]

Atomic RE-Action: Wind & Solar’s Proven Unreliability Makes Nuclear Obvious Choice For Clean Energy Future

  Chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar are central to Australia’s self-inflicted power pricing and supply calamity. But, as the adage has it, out of every crisis comes an opportunity. And for uranium rich Australia that opportunity is nuclear power. Whacked with a legislative ban over 20 years ago, nuclear power has been […]

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 […]

Setting It Straight: Nuclear Power Sets the Gold Standard For Safe & Reliable Power Generation

The French get 85% of their power from nuclear plants and haven’t suffered so much as a scratch since they started in 1962. By contrast, the wind industry (which really only got off the ground in the late 1990s and still generates a trifling amount of electricity) has clocked up around 190 fatalities, so far (eg, […]

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 […]

Game Changer: US Start-up’s Small Nuclear Plants to Make Big Difference to World’s Energy Future

Anyone banging on about carbon dioxide gas and climate change, and not promoting nuclear power, can’t be taken seriously. Nuclear power is the only stand-alone power generation source that does not emit carbon dioxide gas during the generation process. And, unlike chaotically intermittent wind and solar, it’s available 24 x 365. That the world’s third largest […]

Worried About Cutting CO2 Emissions? Then Nuclear is the Only Solution

  As Greta the Fretter and her acolytes would have it, the obvious solution to Australia’s summertime bushfires is covering the country with wind turbines and solar panels. Whether or not this nonsense represents ‘peak stupid’, is a matter for another day. Although wits might retort that large tracts of South Australia – across the […]
