“I think it is much, much better for Australia to be on the inside of this development pathway for India, doing all it can to build the institutional strength required to run a good nuclear sector, putting downward pressure on the greenhouse gas emissions of this global giant, and enhancing regional security through clean development and secure energy supplies.”
Over breakfast I read about the findings of an internal Indian Government report into the oversight of nuclear facilities. Continue reading
My two-part interview with Matthew Pantelis on 5aa radio.
I have my ThinkClimate Consulting hat on here for two interviews for a show called The Wire. The interviews are pre-recorded and cut and they then go out in a kind of news digest on 101.5 FM.
The first was done back in May while the negotiations of the carbon tax design were still under way. Here’s the link.
The second was done last week after the first day of debate in Parliament on the carbon tax bills. Here’s the link.
I had the genuine pleasure of talking to Rod Adams of the terrifc site Atomic Insights this evening, along with my friend Barry Brook of Brave New Climate, for the purpose of his Rod’s podcasting show. Rod recently came across Decarbonise SA and was kind enough to give the site a great write up, so I was delighted to return some of my time to him today.

Last week I gave this fairly lengthy interview to Stan Thomson of ABC South East in Mt Gambier ahead of my presentation that evening. We took four callers, which was great. Particular thanks to caller Geoff who gave my presentation a huge wrap, and acknowledged that he had now done a full turn around on nuclear. I think those voices are the most potent. Continue reading
Here is that ABC News Adelaide interview I gave after presenting to the Local Government Association State Conference. Lot’s of information for a mere 7 minutes of your life. A big thank you to new supporter Ian Mallyon for lending his audio experience to help me get this into an uploadable format. Much appreciated. Enjoy!
Ben Heard interview, ABC News Adelaide
It seems that having the cojones to remain a proponent of nuclear power in the current climate makes me quite media-worthy. Here are three radio interviews I have done recently. The first was a promotional piece for my March presentation (pre-Fukushima…). If I had to guess I would say Carole is far from convinced, but it was certainly a fair interview and good to take some calls from listeners.
Interview with Caroline Whitelock
The second is about 15 minutes with Stan Thompson on ABC Radio South East. Stan seems fairly open to the idea of nuclear power. I am heading to the south east to visit some clients in a couple of months, and intend to arrange a few presentations while I am there. Hopefully Stan will have me back to talk about it.
Interview with Stan Thompson
The third will be posted shortly. It was conducted immediately following my presentation to the Local Government Conference for ABC Radio National. I’m not sure what of this actually went to air, but I will post the full interview.
