Electricity generation – renewables vs nuclearPosted: March 14, 2010
In my post on 10 March, We need to be more strategic about how we tackle greenhouse gas, I argued that we should give priority to making electricity carbon-free ahead of other actions like investing heavily in public transport. The post attracted a comment from Matt. For those who didn’t read it, he left an interesting link to beyond zero emissions on the potential for renewables to replace coal in generating electricity.

I attended the public debate in Melbourne Town Hall on 4 March where the proposition on the table was “that we should embrace nuclear power”. Here therefore in the interests of balance is a link to Brave New climate, which makes the case for nuclear.
