Anything but nuclear power!
If the Greens, SPD and environmental organizations have their way, the last 3 kilns will have to be taken off the grid by the end of 2022, despite the energy crisis. Because of this: Miscellaneous!
But are they right?
BILD exposes 5 lies of nuclear opponents
Claim: Germany has a problem of heat, not electricity!
Economics minister Robert Habeck (52, Greens) says: “Nuclear power doesn’t help us at all.”
The fact is: the more gas that is used for electricity generation, the less is left for heating. If nuclear power plants remain connected to the grid (6 percent of electricity generation), there is more gas left for heating.
Hebek’s own ministry also fears power problems: Secretary of State Patrick Gretchen (50) recommended companies buy emergency generators to compensate for power shortages.
Claim: Safety Checking of Nuclear Power Plants Takes Too Long!
The fact is: reactors are checked regularly. A TUV report (March): Power plants could be “safe” and “continue to operate with some additional measures”.
I Assertion: Social consensus on nuclear power shutdown should not be jeopardized!
Says, among other things, Green Party leader Britta Hasselman (60). According to the INSA Institute, 64 percent of Germans are in favor of the long term – and even 40 percent of Greens voters.
Claim: New fuel rods are not on time!
The fact is: kilns could operate in “stretching mode”. This means that the fuel rods are used beyond their intended expiration date. TÜV Conclusion: “possible”!
Claim: Not Enough Employees!
The fact is: the same problem exists with coal-fired power plants, which are restarted at Habeck’s request.
Operators also say: will not fail because of the staff.
