Nuclear is the new Oil?:Tuesday, May 23, 2006

I've spoken before about the virtues of using Nuclear Power. Personally I think it's a great alternative to Oil and Coal based products, is much cleaner (despite the hype) and Australia is in a position where supplies of this abound.

One important point that Peter Garret pointed out is that nuclear power is simply a smokescreen to avoid tacking energy issues in general. As good a nuclear power is, we still need to looks at cleaner and better alternatives, such as wind and solar power. Without these technologies, we are still restricted to a single limited resource, be it oil, uranium or coal.

Don't be scared of nuclear power, it's not the great evil many people would have you believe, but don't let the government pretend that it's the answer either. We need to free ourselves of resource based energy....
