Should we turn to nuclear power?
Nuclear energy is among the cheapest power sources available to Australia under a carbon price. But, do we really want to go nuclear? John Stanley discusses other technologies that may be more competitive.

New mandatory requirements are being proposed for aspiring teachers in a bid to lift NSW education standards. Jason Morrison on the proposal to study maths and science, or are there better ideas to consider.
YES well should be using nuclear power.
5 years ago I would have said different.Liberator Thursday 2 August, 2012 - 9:59 AM
In a word; yes. Wind and solar power are too unreliable, expensive, disruptive to people's lives (in the case of wind power) and are unable to provide base-line power. Therefore, either coal or nuclear power is necessary in any event. Unless of course, the Greens get their way and we go back to subsistance living in caves and eating tofu.David T. Thursday 2 August, 2012 - 9:43 AM
What about the waste--where does that go--we haven't found a safe way to store that yet--and what about the mess Japan is in now--and Chernobyl --still radioactive--radiation causes more deaths than coal ever will and for a longer time. Nuclear is a HELL of a way to boil waterJay Thursday 2 August, 2012 - 7:54 AM
Jason; Because of this damned rotten tainted hypocrite liar Juliar Gillard Labor government, we now have the dearest electricity in the world, when we clearly should have the cheapest electricity in the world, especially with our abundance of black gold coal resources, enough to last us for thousands of years. Australians are now freezing in their homes unable to afford Labor's greedy electricity costs, damned...SILLY JULIAR Wednesday 1 August, 2012 - 8:35 PM
Nuclear is the only way to go. Most other progressive countries are using it. It is economic, saves burning coal and I fully support it. Forget about the dangerous greens party for they would have us living on forest floors in loin cloths where we humans would progressively fade out of existence - permanently. A greens party dream come true indeed! Lets get on with nuclear power now!Sam Wednesday 1 August, 2012 - 3:10 PM
The greenies cannot have it both ways. Australia is in a relitivly earthquake free zone, we have the Uranium and we have hundreds of thousands of square kilometers for a spent rod repositories. The only thing stopping a Nuclear Powered Australia is the guts to say go!Peter Wednesday 1 August, 2012 - 2:36 PM
