A special online Roy Morgan survey conducted in mid-September shows that 51% (up 16% since July 2011) of respondents say Australia should develop nuclear power to reduce the nation’s carbon dioxide emissions. Some 34% (down 24%) say Australia should not do so, while 15% (up 8%) can’t say. However, without the reference to reducing carbon dioxide emissions, only 45% (up 11% since March 2011) of respondents say Australia should develop nuclear power plants to supply electricity, while 40% (down 21%) say Australia should not, and 15% (up 10%) can’t say. This special online survey on Australian attitudes to Global Warming was conducted from September 11-15, 2019 with an Australia-wide sample of 1,006 Australians aged 18-64 years old.
