Just watching the 7.30 report and cant believe howard's using nuclear power as his get out of jail free card on the carbon debate. Liberals have sat on their hands for far to long in regards to Australia's energy needs and not signing the kyoto agreement (siding with america) certainly reveals howard's old school way of thought concerning the environment.
Stated on the program clean coal and nuclear energy are both a minimum 10 years off. Why on earth are we considering nuclear power when renewable sources such as wind, tidal and solar can be bought on line far quicker and with less expense and with no waste to deal with.
Australia is one of the most backward countries when it come to pollution why?
