Description:  “With the increasingly evident reality of global climate change, there is an imperative to change the ways in which we create and use energy, in all its different forms and applications. Many human activities have an impact on our planet’s biosphere. The majority view of scientists around the world is that greenhouse gas emissions have to be brought under control. With atmospheric carbon dioxide at the highest level ever, we need to take urgent action. The former Howard Government proposed nuclear power as a solution to global warming and proponents continue to advance that proposition. The Briefing Papers available on this website discuss key issues in the debate around the suitability of nuclear power for Australia’s electricity needs, and the problems that surround this technology.”
