Australian state of Victoria will keep ban on nuclear power

Parties agree Victoria will remain nuclear-free state, The Age, RICHARD WILLINGHAM, October 20, 2010 VICTORIA will remain a nuclear-free state, regardless of who wins next month’s state election. Nuclear power is not needed in Victoria because it is expensive, dangerous and obsolete given the state’s abundance of energy options, say Premier John Brumby and Opposition Leader Ted Baillieu.……. Mr Brumby said yesterday: ”Nuclear power is expensive, there are some risks with it and we have had a long-standing policy in Victoria about a nuclear-free state.”

He said his government was focused on renewable energy.

Mr Baillieu said Victoria did not need nuclear power, particularly given its wealth of other resources.
