Do it, BHP!

In response to an article in The Australian where BHP was responding to the South Australian government telling them to build their own power station for the Olympic Dam minesite, after yet another power interruption, I wrote the following comment:

Do it, BHP! Build a nuclear power station. The government has given you the go-ahead. Build a nuclear power station and then sell the power to the entire state. You will single-handedly secure South Australia's energy supply and supply your own needs and have a new business in electricity generation.

Just do it and set the bar for the rest of Australia. You guys have the resources and the grunt to get it done. Just do it.
