    The German nuclear “solution”

    The German nuclear “solution”

    Kathleen

    Despite the fact that it is nowhere near a tsunami-prone area, the German government announced that it will phase out nuclear power over the next decade. Currently, Germany receives roughly a quarter of their energy from nuclear sources and no alternatives were cited in the announcement.

    Angela Merkel, whose CDU party lost handedly in spring regional elections, diverted from a previous plan to keep nuclear power in Germany through 2030. As a result of several reactor shutdowns last year, Germany has recently gone from being a net exporter of energy to a net-importer, and this measure will only increase the price of energy (as well as unemployment).

    This is a terrible idea. Dirty and expensive coal and gas-powered plants will replace the nuclear reactors (which do not even emit greenhouse gases). Merkel’s coalition claims that “renewable energy” replace the void made by the absence of nuclear power.

    I hope the fools who pushed for this are held accountable when they see their utilities go sky high.

    What happens when the new USSR cuts Germany's supply of East bloc gas?

    I hope that America's coal producers and handlers will be laughing all the way to the bank. I live near one of the major east coast coal loading sites, Norfolk Southern Rwy's Lambert's Point piers. The last couple of times that I have flown back from being out of town, we've swung out over the entrance to Chesapeake Bay and I've counted 15 to 20 colliers riding at anchor waiting, that's right waiting! for the pier to open up to load them.
