Environmentalists are undermining their own goals by shutting down zero carbon energy plants.
The announcement last month that California’s largest utility, Pacific Gas and Electric company, plans to close the state’s last nuclear power station sent shock waves through America’s electric utility industry and should send a chilling message to anyone worried about the warming of the planet due to greenhouse gas emissions.
Let’s for a second imagine a world without nuclear energy. That’s a tough one but let’s try. No nuclear bombs, of course, no Chernobyl and Fukushima, no worries about Iran and North Korea. A wonderful world, maybe?

You seem to believe that intermittent wind and solar can power America more cleanly than nuclear power. This is not the case. Wind and solar arrays cover vast amounts of territory, often destroying pristine wilderness areas that were home to many animal and plant species. The energy provided to the grid is weak and intermittent.
Germany has abandoned plans to set out a timetable to exit coal-fired power production and scrapped C02 emissions reduction goals for individual sectors,
NIGEL Farage has declared victory with a barnstorming speech declaring June 23 Britain's Independence Day.
The rooftop panels and churning turbines of booming solar and wind energy are helping make U.S. nuclear power plants, with all the safety fears and rising costs they bring, obsolete, some experts say. So much so
