Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

I don't think storing spent nuclear fuel in a deep geological repository is as large of a technical challenge as you believe it is. I also think that the scale and immediacy of climate change is greatly understated in your comparison to the dangers of spent nuclear fuel. (But I likewise don't have ...

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

Selective reading is all the rage these days eh? For absolute clarity, since you lot who disagree with me seem to only want to cherry pick bits of what I have said: 1. I believe Fission is every bit as bad as fossil fuels, as they swap qty for toxicity and longevity. It is the ultimate curse to hand...

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

Hahaha - its comparatively cheap ( about $60K AUD capex)

Also - thank you for proving your spurious turdity (turdness? not quite sure but I'm sure you'll set us all straight).

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

@ Kestas, I'm not saying that at all. I've said all along that we need to take action on global warming. My arguments were against the singular use of per capita emission as the only benchmark - and I demonstrated why above: per capita emissions falling, but overall emissions increasing. IN an immig...

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

Lying is a strong word Octavious, and even I haven't used it in reference to anyone else, and I'd ask you not do the same to me. I have a good faith belief in everything I've said. Stating that I might be wrong would be an opinion of yours, but asserting that I knowingly publicise falsehood is somet...

Re: The Ashes 2021/2022

The Hundred? Also Test Cricket is still the highest form of the game. I can't watch 20/20 at all - drives me insane - 50/50 is OK.

What has happened to English cricket though - just one of those re-building phases or something more serious?

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

I read a lot of dumb stuff and false propaganda from the climate change deniers, but clearly the proponents of alternative energy, renewable energy are not immune from similar behaviours Yet it's odd isn't it? Some people cite no sources at all, ramble endlessly, and moralise - then throw stones. F...

Also just for you MM and Kestas - the Australian Governments own projections of changes to our energy mix out to 2030 with 69% provided by renewables.

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

Using nuclear power in Australia is pure fantasy. Australians are some of the worst NIMBYs on the planet. No-one will want this near them AT ALL. Just look at the fight that went on with Sydney airport. It took almost 50 years to break ground on it (it was originally proposed in 1973). I remember t...

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

MM, the point I have been trying to make is that there is inherent bias in any benchmark you try to use. Per capita is no more valid than absolute measures - is is actually just a lever to use for political purposes. I'm actually fine with that, until people demand the use of Nuclear fission to subs...

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

OK Octavious, whatever. No one else has provided evidence for any of their claims, but whatever I provide will be hatcheted. I'm not diving down this rabbit hole. When you provide me evidence that I am wrong I will respond. Otherwise you're still just another groupthink opinion.

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

No one talked about emissions from shipping being negligible, so let's not feed that particular straw man. What I asked is if you can show me some figures demonstrating the impact of shipping on the per capita emissions of an Australian and how it is significantly worse than that for Americans and ...

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

Hang on, its easy to fact check my assertion that transport and shipping is not negligible, and cited it as the third largest contributor to Australian emissions. Are you saying unless I provide a link to substantiate that, you consider it invalid? If you go further to state that I am running agains...

Re: Nuclear power: yes or no?

Sorry, Wusti, I find your arguments utterly ludicrous. But thank you, you have helped form what had been a mere assumption that Australia can be usefully measured by the same per capita standards as everyone else into a firm and fully informed opinion. It has been a productive discussion. Right bac...

Some pretty spurious and, dare I say glib, pronouncements there Octavious. Likening intra-country travel to international travel to make a point sounds good, but is logically flawed. If your assertion were correct (regarding equivalence of Welsh to European travel to Sydney Melbourne traffic), then ...
