3 more, and 3 to go, no more nuclear plants in Germany by the end of 2022.
This is the biggest Mind F*%ck in modern history. We have half of the planet clamoring for reduced CO2 emissions, and we have the small group of nuclear protestors getting enough inertia to shut down the cleanest,safest form of energy that we have. Nuclear.
Did you know that the ONLY nuclear power plant where people lost lives was the crappily designed reactor in Chernobyl? There were no fatalities at Three Mile Island, there were none at Fukushima, and none anywhere else. I’d be willing to bet that more people have died installing solar panels.
The “not in my backyard” syndrome (NIMBY) has meant that no nuclear plants have begun in the U.S. for the last 30 years.
Maybe we deserve rolling blackouts that California suffers frequently.
