Minerals Council puts in its bid to overturn Australia’s laws prohibiting nuclear power

Lift nuclear power ban: Miners, Australian Associated Press
January 10, 2018  The peak mining body has urged the federal government to lift the ban on nuclear power in Australia in order to help shore up the nation’s energy supply.

The Minerals Council of Australia made the call in its pre-budget submission.

“Nuclear power has the advantage of being able to generate baseload electricity with very low CO2 emissions over its life cycle,” the submission says.

The council said the ban on nuclear power in Australia is hampering an open debate about future energy and climate change management and stands at odds with Australia’s export uranium mining industry.
