Queensland says no to nuclear.

Around 70 people from unions, conservation groups, the general community, and of course the Communist Party of Australia gathered to hear Speakers from the Conservation Council and the Electrical Trades Union at an LNP office in Brisbane. The speakers outlined the problems contained in the federal opposition’s proposals for nuclear power.

Speakers called for the Coalition to stop withdrawing from climate action.

The problems of nuclear power which included costs, nuclear water disposal, as well as the cost of inaction on renewables.

The fact that coal fired power stations are being closed right now indicates the need to continue a stable approach to just transition.
