Legalise Nuclear Power in Australia


Nuclear Power is illegal in Australia, it shouldn’t be.


Australia posesses enviable natural resources sought after around the world, and our energy sources are no different.  We have abundant natural gas, wind, coal, solar, hydro and uranium. We in Australia, along with many other nations, have the desire and means to pursue an energy transition toward low-carbon sources.


Nuclear Power is 10% of the world’s electricity generation, but it could offer us so much more!


However, our political landscape is such that the mere mention of nuclear power is met with derision and jeers by anti-nuclear groups, unions, and the media, and has been for decades.  Furthermore, the lack of forward planning, poor governance and asset mismanagement, and unjust legislative technology restrictions is threatening the stability of our electricity infrastructure.  


This cannot continue.


Australia has abundant resources, significant technical capability, strong relationships with other nuclear powered nations.  A robust, long-term energy plan that includes nuclear power could lead to easy access to cheap, clean power for all Australians.  This could be the basis for amazing national opportunities, we could:

Break our reliance on fossil fuels and provide cheap, grid-scale, carbon-free electricity,
Rebuild our faltering industries, and develop new ones,
Drought-proof ourselves with water desalination, irrigate arid land, bring security to our farmers' food production and ease pressure on valuable freshwater sources,
Develop infrastructure for decarbonising the non-electrical energy sector, such as process heat and synthetic fuels.

Innovation in energy technology is currently very popular, especially in the renewable space, but equally amazing developments are occurring in nuclear power generation, too.  The ability to seriously examine and consider these opportunities as well would be a great opportunity for all Australians.


We can utilise nuclear technology as an exceptionally powerful force for good, and humanity has only just scratched the surface of its potential.  An unjust law prevents Australia from fully engaging with this powerful technology.


This is where you come in:

The legislation against nuclear power, Section 140A of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act has no place in a progressive western democracy such as Australia.  It was promoted by fear and adopted through ignorance.


The EPBC Act is due for formal review this year, this is the time to abolish this unjust law.
