Graeme Batterbury Submission to Senate – Keep the ban on nuclear power, and save the Earth.

Submission no. 64 re Environment and Other Legislation Amendment (Removing Nuclear Energy Prohibitions) Bill 2022

To Committee Secretary, Senate Standing Committees on Environment and Communications,
I implore you not to lift the ban on nuclear power!
Nuclear is the most expensive energy option available
Nuclear is slow. It can take decades to build and would require a decade or more to develop the
legislative framework
Nuclear is dangerous. Either through human error, disaster, or as a military target the catastrophic
consequences of a nuclear disaster would permanently pollute.
Nuclear is unwanted. There is long standing popular opposition to nuclear power in Australia
because of the issues above as well as the unsolved problem of nuclear waste and the link to nuclear
Alternatives like renewables, storage and energy efficiency are faster, cheaper, more deployable and
enjoy much more public support.
Save the Earth.
