If SHY says it's bad it must be good. She says nuclear is old hat, but if she had a shred of scientific nous (she knows more about superannuation! :->) she'd know solar, water, wind and storage are much much older and with miniscule energy density requiring humongously massive infrastructure to tap them.

For the LNP to gain more cred on climate it must embrace nuclear by the next election and bring the public along. It must do this by, amongst other things:

1) dissing the renewables plus fossil-fueled or grid-storage backup non-solution to lowering emissions and consumer prices while maintaining reliability and Australia's international competitiveness.

2) dealing sensibly with the concept of acceptable risk and fears over safety, waste and proliferation issues, meeting the 'Remember Chernobyl' brigade head-on who won't acknowledge advanced nuclear.

3) make the case for coal-mining to aid the third-world into affluence until they too can afford to nuclearize.

4) sack the Chief-Scientist, who is a closet anti-nuker and dotty-eyed renewablista.

5) investigate the employment practices of the CSIRO that cause its unquestioning renewables focus. "The Transition" is no such thing!

6) Clean out the education system of pro-renewables, anti-nuke ideology and materials and replace it with scientific skepticism.

7) adopting the eco-modernist, affluent-world position spruiked by the likes of Shellenberger and get out and sell it over the degrowth depopulation guff that underlies much of the anti-nuclear thrust.

8) doing a turnaround on a carbon-tax with income-tax and welfare payment offsets to make coal plants and renewables plus fossil-fueled backup less competitive, while enforcing a reliability standard upon electricity retailers equal to nuclear's capability.

The developing voting demographic is a threat to the LNP. It must also look at where it can compromise on NG, franking credits and CGT, which Labor will do better the next time around.

SHY also knows a lot about 'Sea Patrol".

SHY is no different than Hanson, both are not worth the air they breath
Sarcasm? no honestly held view their voters are vote wasters
Nuclear is our long term future

with so much cold and snow around we might need to mine more cold to stop us all freezing.

Dear Luciferase,

I used to be very concerned about the safety
aspects of nuclear reactors especially after
Chernobyl and also about the storage of
nuclear waste.

I've come across the following link that discusses
the pros and cons of nuclear power. I thought it
may help people understand things better - as it did
for me.

"For the LNP to gain more cred on climate it must embrace nuclear by the next election and bring the public along. It must do this by, amongst other things ."

Not sure why the LNP needs any credibility on climate change: they didn't start the hysteria on climate change; it was the LEFT - the ones who, if they think it's the greatest moral question of all time - should be embracing nuclear power, because it is the only RELIABLE source of EMISSION FREE energy there is.

What the LNP should be doing, in appreciation of the unexpected second chance given to Morrison, is dropping the whole crap show on climate, and returning to cheap energy - coal.

If LNP really wants to do something for our environment, it should also be scrapping mass immigration, especially now as our pathetic economic performance (1.8% growth this financial year) exposes the LIE that immigration boosts growth and the economy. We have had massive immigration, yet we are on the bones or our arse economically.
