Nuclear energy: the debate Australia has to have

ABC 666’s Genevieve Jacobs will talk with three of the nation’s most compelling experts (Professor Barry Brook, Professor Ken Baldwin and Ian Hore-Lacy) on an issue we cannot continue to ignore.

The world is hungry for low cost, low emissions energy, but in Australia nuclear energy is still off the agenda. Will other low emissions technology be enough? Why do we keep avoiding the nuclear power option? How dangerous is nuclear energy? How long before our entire region is powered by nuclear energy, leaving us as the odd one out?

These and other pressing issues will be addressed at the fifth STA Topical Science Forum. Make sure you don't miss it.
