“Nuclear power is a clunky technology borne out of a bygone Cold War era. Its best days are over and it cannot form a key part of sustainable energy policy.”
Professor Derek Abbott, our guest speaker,
is a physicist and electrical engineer based at the University of Adelaide.
He’s written many articles about the long-term future for energy production.
He gave a talk, based on the article in the current Australian Quarterly,
in which he outlines why Nuclear Power is in decline.
