Point: Nuclear Energy is a Viable Energy Option

Squires, Morgan
March 2018
Australia Points of View: Nuclear Energy;3/30/2018, p2
The article presents an argument for the use of nuclear energy in Australia. The author argues that Australia's energy needs are not met by its reserves of fossil fuels, particularly coal, and that nuclear energy provides an environmentally sound alternative. Australia's uranium deposits, carbon dioxide (CO2) production, and energy consumption are discussed. The risk associated with nuclear power production are also examined.
