Can we make the ecological transition without nuclear power?




by humus » 10/11/21, 09:19

We do not always realize it, but the energy transition that we must operate to face the ecological emergency, requires in most scenarios a change of society. Because energy is at the heart of our lives, so ubiquitous that we don't even realize it anymore, until its prices rise or we no longer have access to it.

Therefore, what social project do we want for our energy transition? Can we imagine a future without nuclear power? And how to make this transition to a more sober future? We are going to answer all these questions with Yves Marignac, Négawatt spokesperson for this new Blast interview on our energy futures.

Negawatt offers a purely ideological solution without nuclear power. The problem is the distorted view we have on nuclear waste.

The real question is:Can we make the energy transition without oil?
Nuclear power accounts for 16% of our energy (France) and barely 5% in the world, so this is a bad question.

He, returned, is now lobbying for Andra. What a great personal development! And Izy takes over, of course. : roll: :(

I did not know that nuclear power was simply part of an option in the plan energetic transition... since it is a mining energy therefore fossil and exhaustible ...

Wind turbine manufacturing also consumes a lot of fossil fuel. Not to mention recycling ...
I have a little trouble understanding what this is about renewable energy.

But present everywhere on land and at sea and above all does not release GEZ by "burning". RTE included it in its plan

Yes now that political politics have scuttled French know-how, it will be hard. We will be fixed fairly quickly on the possibilities of current private projects, as well as Chinese.
And then our president in his last speech promised a "timid" revival, since we realize that betting everything on renewable energies is a utopia, just good to fuel finance ...
