SA State Government urged to run proposed Adelaide desalination plant on nuclear power

According to Craig Bildstien, the City editor of The Advertiser (13/9/07, p. 23), the State Government has been urged to run its proposed Adelaide desalination plant on nuclear power.

Labor entering Fed govt would delay nuclear power debate: On 12 September, Professor Kemeny, a founding member of the International Nuclear Energy Academy and former consultant to resource giants Western Mining and Hamersley Iron, was one of three speakers at an Adelaide nuclear energy forum sponsored by the Property Council. Opposition Leader Martin Hamilton-Smith addressed the forum, as did the chairman of the Federal Government’s 2006 Review of Uranium Mining, Processing and Nuclear Energy, Dr Ziggy Switkowski, and international anti-nuclear campaigner Dr Helen Caldicott. Switkowski said the nuclear power debate would “go on the backburner” for a long time if Labor won the next federal election.
