Safer nuclear energy option (letter)


by Tom King

News Weekly, October 3, 2009
Sir,

The energy requirements of Australia again received expansion in Peter Westmore's two articles on the subject in News Weekly (September 5, 2009).

For almost four years I have communicated with federal and state representatives in respect to their attitude to thorium, as a relatively clean form of nuclear energy generation.

It was only NSW Senator Bill Heffernan who recently uttered the word during the ABC television discussion panel show Q&A (September 3).

The word thorium is derived from the name Thor, the Norse god of thunder. It has been proven in Europe to be the safest form of nuclear energy production. It also burns its own waste product. Will News Weekly assess and provide a report on it in a future edition?

Full marks for Senator Heffernan who so often delves where the others, from both sides, fear to tread.

Tom King,
Bray Park, Qld
