Now that the last of the country’s nuclear power plants is officially offline, the European economic powerhouse of Germany has created for itself a serious energy deficit, which it is addressing by purchasing nuclear-generated power from nearby France.
In a politically correct “green” move that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, Germany essentially abolished its own much-needed nuclear power infrastructure, only to replace it with nuclear power from another country that likely costs a lot more and is far less available than the domestic stuff.
As with most of Europe ever since Russia invaded Ukraine and the West responded with energy sanctions, Germany, France, and other countries are struggling to produce enough energy for their own needs. Many of them, especially in Western Europe, have been decommissioning energy production from earth-based fuels like coal and oil and trying to replace it with wind and solar, which has not been going all that well.
Part of Europe’s “green” transition involves shutting down nuclear power as well, even though it is “clean” – almost as if the European Union (EU) leadership wants countries like Germany and France to experience a serious energy crisis and subsequent collapse.

Dozens of scientists, Nobel Prize winners beg German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to turn back on the country’s nuclear plants
Recognizing that this is a very serious problem that will end up freezing and starving to death the European population, dozens of scientists, including multiple Nobel Prize winners, have written an open letter to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz asking him to turn back on Germany’s nuclear power generation fleet.
At the very least, Germany needs to restore the three nuclear power plants it recently shuttered so the country can continue producing the power it needs without having to rely on nuclear-generated power from France.
In their letter, the scientist and Nobel Prize winners pointed out that the three nuclear power facilities in question generated a total of 32.7 TWh of “climate-friendly” electricity in the year 2022. This is enough to power one-quarter of Germany’s 10 million households.
“Looking at the production data for the entire lifetime of the now closed Isar-2, Emstand and Neckarwestheim-2 nuclear power plants, they operated at an average utilization rate of 93 percent over their less than 34 years of operation,” reported Remix about the matter.
“In other words, the units operated at almost peak capacity and had not even reached their 40-year operating life, and therefore were still in good condition. The scientists argue these plants could have been safely operated and would have had enough fuel to keep them running.”
Ironically enough, Germany’s carbon emissions have actually increased overall ever since the country started trying to go “green.” Last year alone, the country produced 30 million tons more carbon emissions than in previous years as it has had to increase coal and gas power production to make up for the deficits created by its shutdown of nuclear and forced transition to wind and power, both of which are highly unreliable depending on weather conditions.
“At the same time, the demand for coal supplies has risen. Before the Ukrainian-Russian conflict, half of all coal imports came from Russia, but in the meantime, Brussels has also sanctioned Russian coal. German coal importers therefore source coal for power plants from South Africa, Australia, the U.S., Indonesia and Colombia,” Remix further revealed.
