First Peter Garrett went wobbly on his lifelong opposition to nuclear power. Then Nicholas Kristof urged increased uranium use. And now Australian science minister Brendan Nelson—admittedly not the most stable isotope in the Howard nucleus—wants the same:
Lashing out at the “hysteria” of its critics, federal Science Minister Brendan Nelson advocated nuclear power as a solution to global warming.
It generated 16 per cent of the world’s electricity and avoided 600 million tonnes of carbon emissions each year, he said.
“Is it not time to consider in the longer term the most obvious power source – nuclear power?” Dr Nelson said.
Hmmm…’Nuclear power as a solution to global warming’? I don’t think so… Who are they kidding? Hello…Isn’t ‘nuclear power’ considered a ‘weapon of mass destruction’… Remind me again- why did we invade Iraq alongside of the US? How would the US react to us possessing ‘nuclear power’? Would they threaten to invade Australia too? Or do they just do that to the Islamic countries? …Sounds a bit like double standards to me…When will we ever learn?
A milligram of uranium could power that low-watt mind for 100,000 years.
