Australia urged to make nuclear leap            Why not?    Anti nuclear argument

Just Peace and Friends of the Earth are collaborating to commemorate the 35thanniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown.

The Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster is a reminder that Australia’s Federal Legislation 1999 that bans nuclear reactors and nuclear energy is under threat. Recently Australia has been urged by the nuclear lobby to “make a nuclear leap” to purchase small modular nuclear reactors from the U.S. arguing that only nuclear energy can provide adequate energy. President Biden has included nuclear power in his national energy plan.

SMALL MODULAR NUCLEAR REACTORS?

  • In March 2020 Australia has been urged to join the US in researching and building small “Modular” nuclear reactors ” Reversing Australian legal protection against nuclear power is also their goal. The Environment Protection and Biodiversity Act 1999 prohibits nuclear energy.
