Nuclear’s New Dawn: Small Modular Reactors Offer Ever-Reliable CO2-Free Power

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 – unlike the unreliables, wind and solar. One of the feeble ‘arguments’ against it, is that nuclear power plants are of such […]

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 […]

‘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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Nuclear No-Brainer: Why Australia’s Ban on Nuclear Power Generation Defies Common Sense & Logic

  Every day we’re bombarded with warnings about CO2 incinerating the planet, wiping out entire species and otherwise spoiling our day. For those subscribing to the ‘end is nigh’ scenario, all that seems fair enough. But what doesn’t stand much scrutiny is the fact that the planet’s doomsayers run silent on the need for nuclear […]
