The European energy crisis has caused most of the German population to change their minds about nuclear energy. Most are now in favor of it. The ruling class still wants to eradicate fossil fuels by plundering them to create insufficient windmills and solar panels.
Currently, Germany has three existing nuclear reactors that produce roughly 6% of the country’s power supply, a far cry from the 1990s when 19 nuclear power plants produced about a third of the country’s electricity supply. But nuclear energy has done a great job of reducing the carbon the ruling class wants to eliminate.
In fact, over the past 50 years, the use of nuclear power has reduced CO2 emissions by over 60 gigatonnes, according to IEA.org.
The genesis of the current state of affairs can be traced back to 1998 when a new center-left government consisting of the Greens party and Social Democrats started demanding that the country moves away from nuclear power, a long-held objective of the Greens. The Greens became prominent in the 1980s after they started rallying against the dangers of nuclear energy and nuclear weapons against the backdrop of the Cold War. Indeed, the last new nuclear plants to be built in Germany date back to 2002 after which plans were put in place to phase out all existing plants over the next few decades. –Oil Price
In spite of the rulers’ attempts to coerce and convince the public that “going green” is the best way to save the planet, the people are beginning to realize that carbon isn’t necessarily, the enemy. We are, after all, carbon-based lifeforms and plants need the carbon dioxide we exhale just as we need the oxygen they release.
But the meltdowns at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan soured the public’s mood on nuclear power and forced Germany to do another about-face on this policy. Originally, the plan was to phase out nuclear power by 2022.
Germany is now rethinking its nuclear phaseout strategy, and the public is falling in line. “We will need more electric power in the future. That’s a fact. And 6% can be a lot to miss when there is nothing new [to replace it]. We’d be losing 6% when we really will need more, “German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has told Deutsche Welle.
Nuclear energy is seen as a preferred energy source over burning coal.
The world is slowly figuring out that they’ve been lied to in order to keep them compliant controllable slaves under the thumb of sociopaths. What happens next? Hopefully, the abolition of the last form of acceptable slavery on this planet.
