Exploding Australia's nuclear delusion

A new survey shows just how little Australians know about nuclear power and the potential for explosion – and this is preventing the country from having a real debate about nuclear's potential.

France has been producing most of its electricity using nuclear power stations for an average carbon dioxide intensity of about 80 grams of CO2 per kilowatt hour (gm-CO2/kWh) for two decades. In that time, Australia's electricity has just gotten dirtier, rising from 817 in 1990 to 841 gm-CO2/kWh in 2010.
