Germany Shuts Down Their Last 3 Nuclear Power Plants


Germany is shutting down its three remaining nuclear plants. Nuclear is the cleanest energy we have. When the West sanctioned Russia, they lost about half their fuel. As they move to unreliable wind and solar, they will become dependent on China.

The government of Chancellor Olaf Scholz, which includes the fiercely anti-nuclear Greens, wanted to shut them down sooner but agreed to extend the life of the plants to April 15.

Coal still accounts for a third of German electricity production, with an eight percent increase last year to compensate for the loss of Russian gas.

The country would need to install “four to five wind turbines a day” over the next few years to meet its needs, Scholz has warned — a tall order given that just 551 were installed last year, Insider reports.

Germany also needs to more than double the rate at which it is installing photovoltaic equipment, according to the Agora Energiewende think tank.

People on Twitter don’t think much of Germany’s latest move.

Germany doesn’t even have enough land for their population. They will need a lot more for wind and solar.

Nations which cannot take care of themselves are bad allies, including Germany and the USA.

Traitor Joe has been on the wrong side of every foreign policy issue all his life! The collapse of Germany has also been Engineered by Traitor Joe. When the German Economy collapses, the European Economy will Collapse. Hold on Tight, the coming Worldwide Depression will Suck and Traitor Joe is the architect.

German engineering should be able to provide safe electrical power from nuclear fuel. The bias against nuclear fuel is based in emotional, non-scientific arguments.
The picture showing people that appear to be stone age is so appropriate.
Modern living requires safe water, healthy food, a sound transportation infrastructure and a steady supply of inexpensive fuel. Of course it takes real leaders and not power hungry and greedy politicians who care only for themselves.
To remain safe and productive a society cannot rely on essentials from a enemy who wants to destroy them r enslave them, such a Russia or China.,

And the madness spreads, and it is far more dangerous than any virus or other bug.
