Going Fission

Episode 8 Part 2 - Dayne Eckermann

May 5, 2019

Going Fission Speaks to Dayne Eckermann, General Manager of Bright New World.  This became quite a long discussion, and I have elected to release this in two parts.

Dayne has worked for several years as a Senior Policy Advisor with the South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy (SACOME), a state based representative body for the mining and oil and gas industries, which is invaluable for Bright New World.

Australians! It's time to repeal 140A, visit One Click Politics and tell your minister that you support nuclear Power for Australia!
