We’ve got the fuel. We sell the fuel. But we don’t use the fuel.

Australia mines uranium and thorium, and exports them to the US, India, China and Japan – among others. But we’ve never yet had a commercial power generating nuclear power station.

It’s amazing, then, that this meeting happened at all. Let alone in Canberra. Let alone under a government of Labor – the party which instituted the ridiculous three mine policy. Virtue signalling before virtue signalling had a name.

Ben Fordham on Sydney radio 2GB interviewed Dr Adi Paterson, former head of ANSTO (Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation).

Dr Paterson:

We need firm, reliable sources of energy that are low carbon.
The most stable and safest form of energy today is nuclear power.

The doctor makes some interesting comments about the Finnish Greens, who support nuclear power. Listen to the interview here.

Meanwhile, Energy Minister Chris Bowen thinks 80% of our power needs will come from renewables by 2030. That would require the setting up of 22,000 new solar panels a day, and 40 large wind farms a month. Ben Fordham again here. He describes Bowen as ‘the Mayor of Fantasyland.’

Chris never was a prize winner when it came to arithmetic.
