PORT AUGUSTA NUCLEAR POWER STATION

South Australia's power supply is in such a precarious position that blackouts are a certainty in the future. Greenie Premier Weatherill has allowed this to happen. Olinta Energy has closed down the Leigh Creek coal field that fed the two coal power stations at Port Augusta, and these too are closed with the loss of hundreds of jobs. Port Augusta is now the boxing ring for two companies, Solastor and Solar Reserve, to fight out who will build a billion dollar plus solar thermal power plant for the region.

I suggest we get the Federal Government to take over the power supply of South Australia because the Labor Government has proved to be so irresponsible and outright stupid in its management of the National Power grid. Wind farms are everywhere and these all need a base-level power backup for when the wind doesn't blow, so why build them in the first place? Answer, they are good money SCAMS for the developers.

The Port Augustans seem to want to be at the cutting edge of power development, and have already destroyed two coal power stations in their madness, so I suggest their town be the site of Australia's first nuclear power station. Tell these Solar Energy companies to get lost ....for we're going nuclear. The world's first commercial nuclear power station, Calder Hall, in the UK opened in 1956 and was decommissioned in 2003, but I'm not suggesting the Brits build one here....no, get the Russians, who are experts at building small, modular nuclear power stations, and using them to power remote settlements in their vast Arctic Region, and these would be ideal for our desert mining towns.

We could make Adelaide the center of the Nuclear Industry in Australia, after all we have the world's largest uranium deposit in South Australia, at Olympic Dam. In the Flinders we could build our nuclear waste dump and help the world dispose of its radioactive waste that comes from us selling them uranium. Adelaide's universities would become world renown for teaching courses in nuclear technology, necessary to provide technicians to run the nuclear power stations found all over Australia.

What exciting times for Australia. Our PM Malcolm Turnbull will be so enthralled by this idea that he will be on the phone to Mr Putin to ask if the Russians have a spare 400MW nuclear reactor for Port Augusta and if so, please send it down before the lights go out. It will come on that huge Russian transport plane that recently visited Perth, the An 225, that carried a 120 ton electrical generator, We must inform the Port Augustans of this change in plan for South Australia's power supply......so get lost Greenies, Premier Weatherill, Dr Hewson, and the UN, for our PM Malcolm Turnbull has come to our rescue.

PS: comment by Allano
The South Australian State Government has the responsiblity of supplying RELIABLE and CHEAP electricity to the whole of the State community ...it is not doing this, but going off at a tangent by promoting some eco-religious anti-carbon bullshit that eminates from the Greens and United Nations. Greenie Premier Weatherill even took a film crew with him to the Paris IPCC Confernce, to record himself swanning around the big-name delegates. South Australians have had enough of stupid Weatherill.... we will not accept any more wind farms, and we have the right to expect ASAP reliable base-load power generation, NOT some airy-fairy experimental bird frying solar set-up now being considered.
