Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry into Nuclear Prohibition

In Australia right now there are three separate inquiries underway into nuclear energy - Federal, New South Wales and now, Victoria.

The Victorian Legislative Council’s Planning and Environment Committee is currently inquiring into Victoria’s prohibitions on participation in the nuclear fuel cycle.

Nuclear power is a dangerous distraction from real movement on the pressing energy decisions and climate actions we need. Rather than fuel carbon emissions and radioactive risk through domestic coal power plants and the export of coal and uranium, Australia should embrace the fastest growing global energy sector ‒ renewables ‒ and become a driver of clean energy thinking and technology. Renewable energy is affordable, low risk, clean, and popular. Nuclear is not. Our shared energy future is renewable, not radioactive.
