Chris Kenny presents GOING NUCLEAR: THE CLEAN ENERGY DEBATE on SKY NEWS AUSTRALIA

- ADVERTISEMENT -

As the world pushes toward Net Zero emissions by 2050, Sky News Australia host Chris Kenny takes a closer look at the economic and practical challenges Australia and the world faces in meeting that target in the new documentary Going Nuclear: The Clean Energy Debate.

The one-hour informative documentary examines and debates the technologies and policies being proposed by governments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Going Nuclear: The Clean Energy Debate will explore the issues around a practical path to net zero emissions, with nuclear energy discussed as a possible long-term solution to Australia and the world’s emissions-free energy needs. It examines a compelling argument that the task cannot be achieved without employing nuclear energy. 

Chris Kenny said:

“Like it or lump it, we are heading to net zero. All major political parties, most nations and even big business are committing to this target, so the obvious questions is, how can it be done? We are being sold something of an untruth that you can get there with renewable energy and storage – in most countries that is impossible with current technology.

“Increasingly, environmentalists who worry about global warming are turning to nuclear energy as the technology that can produce high levels of reliable, affordable, zero emissions electricity. Yet in Australia – one of the world’s largest producers and exporters of uranium – we have actually banned nuclear power under the law. If you are serious about energy and prosperity, as well as low emissions, then nuclear must be part of the debate.”

Covering all angles of the debate, the documentary will feature interviews with prominent environmentalists, nuclear energy experts and renewable energy advocates.

Chris speaks with US activist, author and Time magazine ‘Hero of the Environment’ Michael Shellenberger, former UK Extinction Rebellion activist Zion Lights, and Professor Barry Brook who is Chair of Environmental Sustainability at the University of Tasmania.

As Microsoft founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates advocates for micro nuclear as a potential clean energy solution, investing more than $1 billion into TerraPower to build next-generation nuclear power, the documentary looks at the contemporary developments in nuclear technology.

Chris examines the small modular reactors, with experts including nuclear engineer and former CEO of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation Dr Adi Paterson, Australian lawyer, Helen Cook, who has worked extensively on nuclear issues, Federal Resource Minister Keith Pitt and Rolls Royce.
