“The the need for nuclear power is clear, but politicians in many nations are spinning fabulist tales of a rapid transition to zero-emission power without the use of the atom.“
@EasterbrookG review of the excellent new book by @pwrhungry
“Hospitals are being flooded with sick people who need ventilators and electricity to stay alive. If you were one of those patients, what would you choose to power your ventilator? Solar panels and wind turbines or a 2,000-megawatt nuclear plant?”
“Electric grids in densely populated cities should not be too reliant on any one fuel source. Yet that is what is happening: New York is concentrating on a single fuel: natural gas... Cuomo should order Indian Point nuclear plant to remain online”
Indian Point is 23% of New York’s emissions-free electricity
@NYGovCuomo is shutting it down because “environmentalists” including @AOC @NRDC @SierraClub @EnvDefenseFund want him to
They promote renewables to greenwash their pro-pollution agenda
The effort to close Indian Point nuclear plant is, literally, corrupt
It included bribery by a natural gas company of top aides to @NYGovCuomo
