In Global Energy Crisis, Anti-Nuclear Chickens Come Home to Roost

https://foreignpolicy.com/2021/10/08/energy-crisis-nuclear-natural-gas-renewable-climate/

In virtually every country that has closed nuclear plants, clean electricity has been replaced with dirty power.

For years, the proponents of wind and solar energy have promised us a green future with electricity too cheap to meter, new energy infrastructure with little environmental impact on the land, and deep cuts in carbon emissions. But despite the rapid growth of renewable energy, that future has yet to materialize. Instead, many of the places that are furthest along in transitioning to renewable energy are today facing a crisis of power shortages, sky-high electricity prices, and flat or rising carbon emissions.

Germany is looking at the biggest jump in greenhouse gas emissions in 30 years thanks to the efforts of the Green party to replace nuclear with coal.

The Labor Party in Britain famously marched for decades against nuclear power and against the closing of coal mines.

We need to look in the mirror and realise that global warming crisis is too important to allow chicken littles to continue to dictate the burning of natural gas and coal.
