NSW Deputy Premier proposes debate around nuclear power

Just when you thought most politicians are way far GreenLeft – up pops an exception – The ABC says – Nuclear power on the agenda in NSW as Deputy Premier claims ‘we’ve been led by fear and mistruths’ – Surely he is misquoted re France – which has had a large fleet of nuclear power generators for decades. Any ideas for good practical sites around Sydney? Could Lucas Heights be enlarged?

  1. There were proposals to build one at Jervis bay which is a naval base on commonwealth land. The aborigines nearby just out side the Commonwealth land might be a problem.
    Lucas Heights is no longer suitable – too much housing.

  2. It would be good if we could avoid light water reactors (LWRs). At Fukushima they only suffered a loss of flow, but still ended up with hydrogen explosions and melted fuel (and a massive evacuation as a result). A loss of coolant would be worse. Can we buy into a project looking at molten salt reactors? Or alternatively, what happened to the modular pebble-bed design that was much talked-about a few years ago? These reactors are smaller (than typical LWRs) and probably better suited to our grid.
