ACCI urges nuclear power rethink. 29/08/2005. ABC News Online

Australia's largest business organisation has called on the Federal Government to seriously consider nuclear power as a way of meeting Australia's energy needs.

Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) chief executive Peter Hendy says solar and wind power are not yet viable solutions and would cost jobs if implemented in a widespread way.

On the other hand, he says nuclear power is economically efficient and does not add to greenhouse gas emissions.

The ACCI wants the Federal Government to conduct a feasibility study into the establishment of nuclear power generators in Australia.

It concedes fossil fuels will continue to supply most of the country's energy needs but argues it is only sensible to look at all options.
