Australia’s nuclear lobby steps up the spin, in fear of renewables’ success

The nuclear lobby fears the success of renewable energy. This is a pressing reason for stepping up nuclear spin in Australia today.

The cheerleader of pro-nuclear, anti-renewables spin is THE AUSTRALIAN newspaper. Their “environment editor” Graham Lloyd, is more of an Anti Environment editor. Today’s edition (27 Nov) has no less than three articles promoting nuclear power, and rubbishing wind energy.

We have  foot-soldiers of nuclear spin  – Jennifer Marohasy, Janet Albrechtsen, Martin Nicholson, Tom Biegler and Barry Brook getting coverage in the mainstream media.  And even Australian Radiation Protection Society getting lectures on how we need nuclear powered submarines, and the” ideal of having a national nuclear industry”

Minister for Resources, Martin Ferguson launched a technical paper that portrays nuclear power as an economic option for Australia

Internationally, papers are appearing on the theme of ionising radiation  being “good for you”.

The nuclear lobby has very little time, (with most nuclear reactors soon reaching their close-down date) to  market its product against its popular and fast-developing competitors – renewable energy and energy efficiency. – Christina Macpherson
