Prof. Walter Starck 'a winner' (letter)

by Murray Mitchell

News Weekly, June 24, 2006

Is Prof. Walter Starck ("How to make Australia energy self-sufficient", News Weekly, June 10, 2006) the same person who writes about fisheries management?

If so, you have a winner there on current affairs.

His article on energy self-sufficiency is clear, well-stated and convincing; but you can bet on it that government will ignore it as long as the nuclear energy debate can be kept rolling.

And the media will ignore it for several reasons. In the meantime, the general public remains ignorant.

Murray Mitchell,
Bairnsdale, Vic.
