People claim nuclear power mitigates CO2. What these people do not look at is how much CO2 is emitted in the mining of the ore, transporting of the ore, processing of the ore into yellow cake, transporting the ore and then making the reactor rods, transporting the reactor rods. Then these people do not consider how long the waste material takes to decay in a half cycle. Its something like 500,000 years. A very long time.

CLIMATE CHANGE MUST BE TACKLED WITH DRASTIC MEASURES LIKE
" DECOMMISSIONING OR SHUTTING DOWN AT LEAST 1 OR 2 OF THE TOTAL 5 TO 6 CO2 / CARBON EMITTING TOWERS !!!
THIS WILL GO TO ' NIP THIS MENACING PROBLEM IN THE BUD ' !!!
AND IMAGINE THE DIFFERENCE THIS WILL MAKE TO THE GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT IF THESE DRASTIC MEASURES ARE ADOPTED GLOBALLY BY , SAY , CHINA & INDIA !!!
SO LETS TAKE THIS BULL BY IT'S HORNS & NOT ACT LIKE A BUNCH OF COWARDS !!!
NATIONS AROUND THE WORLD CAN SWITCH TO SOLAR ENERGY A.S.A.P.
AS THIS IS BOTH FREE & ABUNDANT >> SO WHY THE 'LETHARGY' & INACTION GIVEN THE FACT THAT TIME IS RUNNING OUT ON THE PLANET!!!
TAKE THE EXAMPLE OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL >> HERE EVERY HOME CARRIES A SOLAR PANEL FITTED TO IT & WATER GETS SUFFICIENTLY HEATED BY SOLAR ENERGY !!!
SO LET AUSTRALIA GIVE UP THIS ' LETHARGY ' TOWARDS ADOPTING EXCELLENT SOLAR ENERGY ALTERNATIVES TO HAZARDOUS COAL ONCE AND FOR ALL !!!
