No to Paris, yes to nuclear: Bernardi

Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi has repeated his calls for the Turnbull government to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord and to legislate to allow the consideration of using nuclear power to generate electricity.

The release this week of a report by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission which made recommendations to fix our “broken” energy market has again revived debate on climate policy and how Australia generates power.

Senator Bernardi has told 2GB’s Chris Kenny, the slavish ideological adherence to costly climate policies will ultimately destroy the Australian economy and our way of life.
