The energy crisis is worsening

Countries such as Australia will require mature leadership at some point, and hopefully develop their collective intelligence sufficiently to recognise that they have no choice but to transition to new advanced technology nuclear power. Until nuclear power is fully adopted, they will be forced to continue using coal-fired power plants and, most likely, transition to gas-fired power generation in order to reduce emissions.
Australian households pay some of the highest electricity rates in the world, and their energy market has far too many fingers in the pie since deregulation and appears to be out of control.
