All you need to know as Peter Dutton goes nuclear – what we know now, when the new policy details will be revealed – and the key questions needing answered

Climate crusader Simon Holmes à Court has posed a series of 18 questions that he says Dutton must answer if he wants the Australian public to support nuclear energy.

Mr Holmes à Court has a Climate 200 fund that backed the ‘Teal’ independents at the last election – many of whom won previously safe Liberal seats in affluent parts of Sydney.

– Where nuclear reactors will be located

– How the Coalition plans to lift state bans, as nuclear power is currently banned in Victoria, NSW and Queensland

– What will happen if the local population objects

– When will the reactors start generating energy?

– How much will they cost?

– How is the waste managed?

– Who provides disaster insurance?

– What will be the impact of the emissions

He said: ‘Without good answers to the above questions, the coalition cannot be taken seriously.

“Any plan that makes us pay more and inflates our carbon budget is a poisonous joke.”
