I do not think nuclear power, still beset with insurmountable problems of risk particularly in waste storage, is the solution to global warming problems. But we do need a vigorous debate about how to respond to climate change - with all options subject to the same scrutiny and charged with the same requirements of producing energy that is clean, safer and sustainable.

The future is unfolding before our eyes. Canada’s Inuits see it in disappearing Arctic ice and permafrost. Australians see it in fatal heatwaves and extended droughts. Scientists see it in tree rings, ancient coral and bubbles trapped in icicles. All of these things reveal that the world has not been as warm as it is now for a millennium or more, and that the last years have been the hottest on record.

Climate change is so big that people who study it.. and many do.. need to speak to it. They must present scientific papers, they must appear in public, they must speak to the media and we must hear their voices. In order to get policy right, policymakers.. governments.. need to make decisions based on sound science.

The challenge for governments is to adopt policies that address the increasing energy demand but within the long-term context of climate change. Many elements can be considered: ways of making coal cleaner; rapidly developing and supporting a suite of renewable energy technologies with an emphasis on increased energy efficiency; carbon caps and trading; and, of course, looking hard at ways of reducing and localising energy demand.
