Kelvin Kemm, South Africa: Advances in physics in fields such as quantum mechanics, which is linked to nuclear processes, have compounded matters for the public. A consequence is that the public is now really ‘spooked’ when it comes to the topic of nuclear power. A real ‘fear factor’ looms over the mere word ‘nuclear.’ Newspapers love this, and really push imagery like; ‘nuclear leak’ or ‘radiation exposure.’
Kelvin Kemm, South Africa: Perhaps the answer can be found in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. “There's no use trying,” Alice said. “One can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Kelvin Kemm, South Africa: I believe that,when people look back at the history of 1970 to 2015, they will wonder how a sophisticated, technological society could be so misled by proponents of human-induced climate change, when so much scientific evidence is available to show that clear logical alternatives are available to the hysterical incantations of the doom-and-gloom cult.

Kelvin Kemm and co-authors clearly explain that nuclear power is essential for national progress. South Africa is in a very unique position in which both the developed and developing economic forces operate within one country.
