After last week’s damning ACCC report into the energy sector, Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi is calling for nuclear to be considered as a possibility in Australia’s energy mix.
Though debate has been dominated by the ideologically polarised coal and renewable camps, Senator Bernardi says the parameters of discussion need to be broadened so that Australia can rethink nuclear energy’s prohibited status.
In 2016, Australia exported $900 million in uranium to our international counterparts, though not one iota was used here.
Senator Bernardi has told Sydney radio station 2GB this is symptomatic of some serious hypocrisy.
