The news magazine Cicero has been locked in litigation with Robert Habeck’s Ministry of Economic Affairs, seeking the release of documents that might shed light on the April shut-down of the final operating nuclear power plants in Germany. Ministry officials have refused to cooperate, but yesterday a court in Berlin finally ordered them to hand over whatever they could find.
Okay, so the German Economics Ministry hid the facts because they wanted the last nuclear power generating plants in Germany shut down, and the facts contradict their proposal. I'm still curious as to WHY the Economics Ministry would support such disastrous policy in the first place.
The decision making layer of our nations have lost their minds. I am tired waiting for normals to realize this.
These policies are absolute madness. I cannot believe it is all a globalist machiavellian plot. Much of what we see is the result of cult-like adherence to plans designed to be grandiose to satisfy the narcissists and psychopaths who make it to senior levels.
The very existence of grandiosity itself is jarring in a country already suffering from concrete issues they should be focusing on like the loss of industry and dangerous demographic changes from rapid immigration.
What a farce our world has become.
Germany has survive many catastrophic events, but can it survive its own bureaucracy? Doesn't really look like it...Even Gretchen the wonder child said it's dumb to shut down nuclear power once it's running....
I cannot understand how eliminating nuclear power plants is a sensible long-term solution. Especially for a nation in a northern latitude, the electric generation from solar panels is negligible.
I was in Scotland earlier this year, and a tour guide proudly directed our attention to the solar panels on rooftops. In Scotland. (I'm sure the king is delighted.)
It's one insanity after another: Covid. Racism. "Transgender." Climate change.
If the Greens love to be Green, why don’t they love to be Green.
Green Party extremists are watermelons, green on the outside and red on the inside. All this as Germany heads towards winter and if it is not as kind as last winter maybe the nukes will be fired up and EU cap and trade be damned. Where the Hell is Enron when you need a good trading scam?
Germans are (literally) killing their economy and people in order to say, with their heads held high:
"Take that Putin!"
Meanwhile, the Eurozone is in recession already and has many dark years ahead of it. But at least they can smell their own farts and be pleased.
I thought us Americans were trying our best to destroy our country, but the Germans have us beat. You gotta give Germans credit. They're really efficient at anything they want to do.
Greens who object to nuclear power are lying about being greens.
Wait! The Ukraine war was used, by the German govt, as an argument in favour of REDUCING Germany's energy independence?? Did this same Energy Ministry ask the US to seal that deal by blowing up Nordstream??
These bureaucrats are destroying the world in the name of saving it.
I wish I knew where on earth I could escape these fools.
I have to say I'm not sympathetic. The Greens are outwardly misanthropic, anti human, and most importantly anti German. Yet they still command significant support. Bring on more pain.
Re-open the closed nuclear plants and build more.
There are vast unpopulated areas on our planet, if we can go to the moon we should be able to create safe places to park spent nuclear fuel rods or maybe even find a second life for them like EV car batteries. Think of how much CO2 you could stop if more nuclear power was in use.
