Another leader in the global environmental movement has broken with orthodoxy, and is now openly advocating the expansion of nuclear energy on a global basis. From Sunday's edition of The Australian:
THE outspoken chief of environment group WWF Australia has gone to London to lobby the international organisation to overturn its anti-nuclear stance.Keep an eye on London this week.
Greg Bourne flew out on Friday, a day after he rocked the environment movement by declaring Australia was "destined" to expand uranium mining.
Mr Bourne will attend a WWF International global energy taskforce meeting this week with senior managers of one of the world's biggest and most influential conservation groups.
The taskforce aims to formulate an energy policy model for dealing with climate change and restraining global warming to an average 2C above the Earth's global average temperature.
Mr Bourne, former president of BP Australia, will argue the case for nuclear energy to be a part of that energy policy.
