May 11, 2009: Dr. Ziggy

In order to further broaden my understanding of global warming and the energy challenges that Australia must face, Lisa and I attend the presentation “Energy Options in a Warming World” at the University of Western Australia. Dr. Ziggy Switkowski is the Chair of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization. In 2006 he chaired the Australian Prime Minister’s Review of Uranium Mining, Processing and Nuclear Energy. The subsequent question/answer session was informative but also indicated the divide between Australian conservation groups and the nuclear lobby/industry. I speak to Dr. Switkowski after the discussion and at his invitation email him some specific questions and enquire for further information. He responds promptly and provides more food for thought.
