Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

Australia should note the UK experience. There, government promotes costly nuclear power, solely to secretly fund and supply nuclear submarines.

After years’ long research, Phil Johnstone and Andy Stirling have produced a report   –  https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/24724718.2021.2012351 –   it’s a seminal study of how tax-payers’ money goes secretly from ”beneficial” megaprojects to the nuclear weapons industry. In the UK, this means specifically- to nuclear submarines.

The money to the nuclear submarines cannot be measured, cannot be counted – it is so hidden in the world of energy projects, civil nuclear energy. But this explains why the governments persist doggedly with nuclear power projects that are clearly uneconomic, (and no use in combatting climate change – too late, even if they did work)

The sad and shocking thing about this – is the sort of groupthink that has pretty well everyone on the bandwagon – politicians, media, academia, business, education – and not just those who have been bribed by the nuclear industry. It’s a sort of groupthink treadmill, and they can’t seem to get off it, lest they look unpatriotic, or worse, – silly.
