Default Re: Washington Post - Germany to Close Nuke Plants by 2022

This is sad to see, people need to educate themselve in nuclear technology. Heck hydro power has killed more people than nuclear. The big thing this story does not touch on ate that the plants Germany plans to close are older Gen I plants. These should be closed at this point no question.

What needs to happen is investment needs to be increased for Gen IV nuclear technology and start building Gen III+ plants. Gen III+ plants have very limited amounts of spent fuel and produce an exponentially larger amount of power for the fuel they use.

Once fussion becomes feasable, the need to power will be solved. We just have to get to that point and fusion is really the only way.
