I know for a fact the the NSW premier told the media that he would have no part in the project and that there would be no nuclear power plants in NSW whatsoever.
The main push towards nuclear is purely money driven. Australia has the largest reserves of uranium in the world. Given the fact that a contract has been signed with China to sell uranium that, will raise yellowcake production 100% in the next 5-10 years to meet their demand. Stop and think about that for a second, the current amount we produce per year, that's how much china wants to buy. But maybe they won't buy it, because some bright spark floated the idea of LEASING the uranium.
