Use Australia's uranium resources to generate power for desalination plants to supply water to large-scale horticulture.
Australia is rich in minerals particularly uranium. It also has vast tracts of remote, seismically stable, unpopulated land. Perfect for disposal the by-products from nuclear power and large-scale horticulture.
Australia has a climate with a lot of the attributes for food production but rainfall and water availability is a limiting factor. Why not harness the power of nuclear power to create fresh water from desalination? Jobs and wealth would be created every stage in process (mining, power generation, desalination, horticulture and waste disposal).
