  1. Ed, I wouldn't take this too seriously; online polls are notoriously inaccurate.

    Even assuming that nuclear power was accepted by the Australian public in the abstract, it's an open question whether those near a proposed plant will (regardless of the excellent environmental and safety record of nuclear facilities).

    Look at the fuss made about, say, the desalination plant at Wonthaggi in Victoria.
