New Zealand: a Choice between Coal and Nuclear Power?
cover image from the video game "New Zealand Story"
This article in New Zealand's Otago Daily Times suggests that nuclear power stations will be operating in New Zealand by 2015 if coal is not used as a fuel source. Currently 40 of approximately 60 power stations in New Zealand are hydroelectric.
To me this seems a false choice. New Zealand produces more of its electricity from hydro-electric power stations than any other country. There's nothing stopping New Zealand utilising wind, wave, solar & tidal power to meet its future energy needs.
