    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    Superphenix The Greens putting stipulations on the closure of plants and whether they can be considered “green” but when backed up against the energy dilemmas of today, they want to extend their licensing at the last minute and ease regulatory pressures. This creates uncertainty to scheduling...

    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    Yeah, they only just managed to shut down a successful Fast Breeder Reactor and thwart the research and development of any future reactors with more modern technologies and systems.

    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    That’s what happens when Green-party assholes get in the way of development and maintenance. Now we have to rely on unreliable renewable energy on the interm that was promised to be cheaper but has been anything but.

    Scholz Opens Door for Extending Nuclear Power in Germany https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-07-22/scholz-opens-door-for-extending-nuclear-power-in-germany Now why would Scholz want to do that if Renewables Über Alles?

    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    Easy to say such bullshit when half of the NPPs in France are undergoing pandemic-deferred maintenance. Nevermind the fact that Germans are paying more for energy than most of the EU. Weird given that renewables should have the opposite effect. I guess their inability to provide a reliable and...

    Russia and Ukraine

    Can we also not ignore the fact that the design of the reactors at Zaporizhzhia NPP share nothing in common with the RBMK design of Chernobyl? The reactors cannot simply explode in the same fashion and cause a disaster an order of magnitude worse than that of Chernobyl.

    I didn’t know we had Russian bots on FinalGear.

    Nice! I've always been intrigued by these, a guy try to sell me his with an RS500 kit on it. I'm still too busy with my SVO.

    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    It's expensive now but will it always be expensive in the future? Russia is already operating two fast breeder reactors and China is right behind them. I'm going to guess western technology for breeder reactors is more expensive due to overregulation rather than due to a lack of technical...

    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    Million-year storage is unnecessary once you have transitioned to breeder reactors, I imagine some time down the road civilization will realize that nuclear proliferation was nothing more than a political bogeyman.

    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    Importing so they can maintain their exports to UK, Italy, and Benelux. The plants being down is temporary. A 5c matters little when the prices in Germany are still 2x-3x higher. Gov't intervention is recent. One can look back at prices historically and see that renewable transformation has...

    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    Well, when the average consumer in France is paying 12.92 euro cents per kWh vs. 32.10 euro cents per kWh in Germany, its clear there are some pricing shenanigans going on. Do those figures account for the CO2 emitted in Poland and Czechia on account of German power needs? I don't think so...

    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    I stand corrected but my guess is that market has been manipulated such that it is more advantageous for France to sell power to the UK, Italy, and Benelux than it is to Germany. Either way, the CO2 output since the Nuclear phase out is embarassing in addition to the fact that Russia will now...

    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    Based on increases in energy importation from France and energy generation via Natural Gas the latter now resulting on a dependence and reliance relationship of said Natural Gas from the Russians. Sounds like a great strategy moving forward.

    This strategy has really not worked well for Germany.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. I thought it was some cheap-y Chinese slip-on but once I looked it up I noticed that it's quite a nice piece.

    Thanks! It's somewhat stock only has Heli Riser clip-ons and a Micron slip-on. 28k miles. I know what you mean, I found this really nice one locally that has all the right farkles: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/scz/mcy/d/santa-cruz-99-honda-vfr-800/7145809716.html I don't need 3 VFRs...

    I bought another yellow 2000 VFR lol This one belonged to a friend of mine that had the usual Stator/RR issues, he had a friend try to fix it but he ended making it worse. They both decided to throw in the towel so I was able to scoop it up for a song. Plan is to flip it.
