[Y!] Germany to scrap nuclear power by 2022 - Page 9

Yes, there were design flaws, but go back to Tater Tot's comments, Fukushima was a 1st gen power plant that was designed in the 60's, and they stored spent fuel on site as well. Current generation light water reactors are very safe, but they are not allowed to be built because of the tree huggers who think that solar and wind power will be able to replace coal and nat gas right now, they are wrong. Someone needs to take away your keyboard.
I agree, but did you have to be so mean LOL

lol, so they'll have to buy their power from nukes in france. Also, pretty sure Germany doesn't sit on a major fault-line

How does decommissioning local plants protect them from continent-wide fallout, anyway? Nature doesn't recognise borders...

Will be interesting to see them replace 25% of their power supply with the loss of these reactors. If they can pull it off it'll be a good case to which to refer. However replacing 150 terawatts of power generation capacity will be a tall order and will require a ton of renewable power sources.

True, they are lucky they are practically immune from quakes, but Germany wants to be a leader in green energy, knoowing that other countries will follow if they can pull it off.

Have you ever seen how freaking green Berlin is? IN DOWNTOWN! Its amazing, I can only compare it to LA but I was speechless how green the entire city is ALL OVER

This could actually be a really good thing if it leads to new sources of energy that are low cost and efficient.. I don't think most countries should do this currently, but one economic giant doing it could prove to be a really good thing for the rest of us if they end up discovering something we've missed.

From what I have been hearing they are looking into windmills in the North sea as a possible alternative. However, this was a few months ago (before the CDU declared that they were going through with this).

I hear that Germany often expects to have magnitude 7+ earthquakes.

Oh wait...




What are they going to do then? Buy the energy from French nuclear reactors at twice the cost?

In South Africa, there have been plans to build a new Nuclear powerstation, but has been put on hold due to the fuss people are kicking up (Saw a bumper sticker the otherday saying: 'no nukes in thyspunt', that really annoys me)
Our main source of power comes from coal burning plants, and I wouldn't be surprised if that makes up 80 to 90% of all our power
how the hell can you not want to move to nuclear when we are burning thousands of tons of coal a day.
Not to mention, the plant in intened to be build in a developing industrious area, so it's not like it's being built in a residential area

Just annoys me when I see people acting like idiots, even though the idea of moving to green energy is a good idea, it's costly and not as efficiant as alternitaves. And they to short sight to see this, and will rather bash down the idea of nuclear power as the idea is dangerous if it suffers a critical failiar and keep the power source that is killing our plannet as we speak

Yes Nuclear power has risks, but how many times has a nuclear plant actually hit melt down?

The Germans better have an actual plan - otherwise they will end up buying their power from the former Eastern Bloc, where they operate obsolete and unsafe RMBK reactors.

I am all for more efficiency - but I don't think that handing cash over to the Middle East is a real solution...
