Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

Abandonment of nuclear power in Germany has NOT meant an increased use of fossil fuels.

In Germany, has the abandonment of nuclear power been accompanied by an increased use of fossil fuels? German net energy production is increasingly less dependent on fossil fuels. While a new thermal power station was inaugurated in 2020, around twenty have already been closed in ten years.

Has the withdrawal from nuclear power really been accompanied by an increased use of other fossil fuels across the Rhine? Has there been an increase in energy production from lignite (coal rich in sulphide and lower in carbon than hard coal, and therefore both more polluting and less energetic)?

In short: it is wrong to assert that the deployment of renewable energy in Germany has been accompanied by an increase in the share of energy attributable to the coal-gas mix, or by an increase in the number of coal-fired power stations.
