Sorry, renewable technology is NOT in it's infancy!
Perhaps for nations who have difficulties to fulfil the Kyoto protocol, or refuse to, like USA and China, but not for those who can fulfil them!
Green tech is effective and working, it is just NOT YET being installed in some lands, because another one is already running!
You simply don't invest money into another energy in a financial crisis, when you try to avoid bankruptcy and when you hold stocks of nuke plants!
Germany will phase out of nuclear energy. The exit dates were set under the Green goverment,.
When the conservative government took over, they delayed the exit times, and told us we CAN'T get out now, because we would get energy shortages!
Now, after Japan, and before elections, with 60 % of the People vehemently demanding an exit as son as possible, they put their delay plans on ice for 3 months and suddenly tell us now, that they will turn off at least one nuclear plant in Southern Germany, probably a few more, because now, all of a sudden, they are not safe enough anymore!
Huh??? In a high-tech- land such as Germany???
And SUDDENLY; we will not get an energy crisis through turning it off...!!
No, TRANSPARENT, when you study the matter in depth and over years.
Fact is, that the companies which run nuclear plants had top grade stocks, and politicians got hold of a few!
Btw, NOW all the nuclear experts Germany and Greenpeace have are being invited by the news channels to tell us more, and now, everybody listens and is waking up to reality.
Medium radioactive waste will radiate 15 000 years, uranium 200 000 years.
Where is Japan's nuclear waste stored?
What happened to it during the earthquake?
What will happen to ours?
We also get earthquakes, and what, if a plane falls onto a plant, or is being flown ionto it?
What , if a hacker virus messes the electronis up??
If our ancestors had begun with nuclear energy at Buddhas times, we would still be dealing with the waste today and for another 2500 years minimum!
Isn't it insane to even start something like this????
It is crazy!
AS CRAZY AS SAMSARA!
And just as hard to wake up from...
