Report Concludes Nuclear Is ‘A Viable Possibility’ For New South Wales

The council said the report, prepared by the New South Wales legislative council, represents another major step forward in the national debate where nuclear energy is at last being considered on its merits of providing reliable, affordable zero-emission power.
