Calling Fear of nuclear devastation ideology is pretty stupid, we all know the downsides of nuclear power.Saksan sähköntuotanto oli 655 terawattituntia ja Ranskan 529 terawattituntia vuonna 2017.www.tekniikkatalous.fi
I'm sorry about the source's language. I'm not reading english newsites so forgive me pls.
Energy production in France: 72% Nuclear energy, 10% hydroelectric, 10% coal and natural gas, 5% wind power and 2% solar energy
In Germany: 38% Coal and Brown Coal, 33% renewables, 12% nuclear, 13% natural gas and rest from other fuels.
Now, this is the point I'm trying to make: 1 kwh produced, on the avarage, 72 grams of CO2 in France when in Germany some number was 764! 10 times more
Really the problem with ideology policy in nuclear power is that the energy need to be made in otherways. And unfortunately renewables are not efficient enough and reliable enough ( other energy sources are needed to flatten the unavoidable drops in wind and solar energy).
No solution for long term storage.
Multiple examples of serious failings that lead or almost lead to gigantic disasters and uninhabitable land.
Exploding costs especially if you include storage (and not even the long term storage)
Ecologically questionable, especially with rising temperatures potentially no more cooling water from rivers like the rhine, causing massive numbers of dead fish.
So instead of focussing on yet another destructive power source it is much smarter to go totally renewable while investing into storage research.
Btw Germany bought the long term storage responsabilities from the energy companies, as they would get bancrupted by those costs n the long run (same for the coal mines in the Rhineland, which will cost trillions over many years to come)
