It seems somebody’s started to notice that there are an awful lot of independent scientists and academics – especially physicists – out there who are starting to speak out against anti-nuclear nonsense, so they’re trying to run defence by implying that these academics and scientists must clearly be shills of some sort.
“It is possible for Australian universities to divest and resist new funding and declare institutions nuclear-free.”
I have a sneaking suspicion that these people wouldn’t accept that a university was “nuclear-free” until such time as they abolish any Nuclear Engineering teaching or research, any nuclear or atomic physics teaching or research, and any teaching or research involving the use of radioisotopes.
In other words, the vast majority of all serious physical science.
They better get rid of the smoke detectors and radioluminescent exit signs while they’re at it.
“Assoc Prof Sevior, along with the other academics from the University of Melbourne, paints a picture of a department in favour of nuclear power, whilst it is claimed that they have “no particular vested interest”. “
They don’t have any particular vested interest. If they do, why don’t the critics put forward the evidence? Put up, or shut up.
