So, after 7 hours of sleep in a quiet hotel for this father of two wakeful kids had rushed past, my alarm went off for day one of the conference. I had barely silenced it when the phone rang. A friendly producer from 3AW was telling me that I was quoted in The Australian, and that the show wants to talk about how nuclear power can save us money. Would I be ready in 45 mins?
The answer to such questions is always yes…Now, what they mainly wanted to discuss was work by Martin Nicholson, but our media releases had both been drawn upon for this article and I got the call. Fortunately I am a big fan of Martin’s work, so I had read his excellent paper and knew what it was about. (How nuclear power would impact the Australian economy – Full Paper)
What ensued was a rather enjoyable dance with the morning radio hosts, in which I think some great information went out. Enjoy!
