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 […]

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 […]

Time to Get Serious: Fretting About CO2? Then Nuclear Power’s The Only Solution

If you’ve tuned in to someone banging on about ‘carbon pollution’ (aka carbon dioxide gas) and they aren’t banging on about nuclear power, it’s time to tune out. STT promotes nuclear power because it works. Reliable, safe and affordable it’s the only stand-alone power generation system that does not generate carbon dioxide gas during the […]

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, […]
