Uranium Mining in NSW
Of course the O’Farrell Government is right to attempt legislation to permit uranium exploration in NSW. I said this two months ago.
The Federal Government has expanded uranium mining and opened exports to India. South Australia boasts what will become the world’s largest uranium mine. The ban for NSW reflected the anti-nuclear sentiment of the 1980s and it is irrelevant today when to beat global warming we urgently need every available source of carbon-free energy.
Shooters Party MPs and the Christian Democratic Party would be well-advised to vote for this legislation on common-sense grounds.
