Behind the scenes on False Dawn for New Nuclear in Africa shoot.
I'd been waiting for a couple of weeks for the right conditions for this shot. The weather was inconsistent and unpredictable.
I woke up early 4am quite a few times to see what the weather was like and eventually got my shot.
While I was there I took the opportunity to get some landscapes - which I put up on my landscape page @jaycabozlandscapes - check it out if you like my work! ------
On the other side of the argument, there is a claim the ruling is an overstatement. Kelvin Kemm, Chairperson of the South African Nuclear Energy Corporation (Necsa), called for caution when interpreting it. The nuclear physicist argues that the court ruled on an administrative process, not on the wisdom of nuclear power. ⠀
“A false impression has been created that this judgment is anti-nuclear. It is not and comment to that effect is premature and regrettable,” says Kemm. ⠀
“One positive aspect of this ruling is that it presents the opportunity for the facts and truth to be fully aired and debated so that rational people can think and decide on realities not hearsay. The anti-nuke lobby has had the platform to themselves, not least because the nuclear industry has been quiet. This will change. Necsa and the nuclear industry intend to step up efforts to put the facts before the court of public opinion and to present a balanced and evidence-based case for nuclear energy as the right energy option for South Africa.” ⠀
