University of Adelaide pushing the false idea that nuclear power is “zero carbon”
The University of Adelaide has set up The Environment Institute – claiming to tackle some of the most serious environmental challenges facing Australia and the world. What a pity that this wonderful sounding think tank or whatever it is is looking very much like nothing more than a front group for the nuclear lobby.
Led by Barry Brook and Ben Heard, this pro nuke spruikfest is now claiming that nuclear power is ”a zero-carbon generation source”
Well – it’s just not true. )and the diagram below doesn’t even include the carbon emissions from digging the burial places for nuclear wastes and dead reactors)
They make the statement on their Facebook page. Brett Stokes challenges them with this comment:
Warning to The University of Adelaide.
“nuclear power, a zero-carbon generation source”
This is a false statement.
The making of this statement amounts to fraud with malfeasance.
Please qualify or retract this statement immediately.
So it has now been 29 days that this false statement has been published here.
So it has now been 29 days that I have been requesting immediate retraction or qualification of this false statement.
This is unacceptable behaviour by The University of Adelaide.
The persons responsible need to be identified and dismissed.
The false statement needs to be retracted and repudiated by The University of Adelaide.
This fraud must stop. Corrective action is needed now.
I now warn The University of Adelaide.
