The ‘nuclear comeback’?

Screening of new documentary Uranium: Is it a Country?
Followed by discussion with Jim Green, National Nuclear Campaigner, Friends of the Earth

With debates about energy sources and how to tackle climate change, there has been a push for Australia to take up the nuclear option in power generation. Ziggy Switkowski, head of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation says, Australia is ‘out of step’ in rejecting nuclear energy. There is also a push to expand Australia's uranium mining.

What do climate change activists say about the push to put nuclear back on the agenda?

Uranium: Is it a Country? is a new documentary that traces the journey of Australian uranium from the outback to the European nuclear plants.
