A final word on climate change | Coober Pedy Regional Times July 17, 2010 The ETU does not accept the argument that nuclear energy is an answer to the harmful impact on the world’s climate of burning fossil fuels.

Mr Simpson said you do not solve one problem by creating another, more dangerous one.

“How can anyone credibly argue that the answer to global warming or atmospheric pollution is to significantly increase the risk of people getting cancer or them giving birth to deformed babies?

“This is a classic example of the intellectual laziness we so often see in sections of the corporate sector, as it progresses its vested interests at the expense of the wider community. It is also a classic example of the innovation laziness we so often in the corporate sector.

“They so often would rather take the easy, but high risk route, rather than do the hard work on developing and expanding renewable energy sources. We don’t need to mine uranium and build nuclear reactors, we just need to reduce, through technology, the release of pollutants into the atmosphere. Necessity is the mother of invention, so get on with developing the safer alternatives and leave the uranium in the ground,” Mr Simpson said.
