Invest in nukes for
hot water in rivers damaging plants and animals
while there’s less water for agriculture and cities
and droughts and summer heat waves cause power shortages.
That’s Europe’s experience.
Or we could profit by their experience and get on with
reliable renewable solar and wind power.
France has shut down the equivalent of four nuclear power stations
as the heatwave eats into the country’s electricity generating
capacities. With temperatures in French rivers hitting record highs,
some power plants relying on river water to cool their reactors have
been forced to scale back production.
Why is Plant Hatch Unit 1 running at well below capacity?
Saturday 19 Jan 2013 that nuclear plant was
at 100%, according to the NRC,
yet Sunday it was down to 45%, then 40% Monday and 64% today.
What's going on at Hatch 1?
And what happened to nuclear supposedly being 24/7?
