MAPW President: 'Nuclear delusions keep mushrooming'

MAPW President Dr Bill Williams has written to Australian PM Kevin Rudd to applaud the PM's 'recently expressed commitment to continue to reject nuclear power as an energy source in Australia'.

Dr Williams described nuclear power as 'a dangerous diversion of resources' in an article published in the Sydney Morning Herald (15 October 2009) and in The Age. Dr Williams says that predictions of a nuclear power rennaissance from the nuclear power industry may raise community expectations of nuclear power's potential, but do not hold up to closer scrutiny; and that existing renewable energy technologies provide a safe and affordable alternative.
