Macron Pushes to Shut Down Nuclear Power Plants

This is a fascinating story. French President Emmanuel Macron has been aggressively pushing to shut down France’s nuclear plants. Nuclear power if you weren’t aware is the primary source of energy for the country.


French President Emmanuel Macron has said the country will move more slowly than promised to cap the amount of energy it derives from nuclear energy.

Amid daily protests about high energy prices, Mr Macron said France will shut down 14 nuclear reactors by 2035 out of 58 now in order.

He said France would cap the amount of electricity it derives from nuclear plants at 50 per cent by 2035, which is a delay compared with the goal of 2025 set by his predecessor Francois Hollande.

France depends more on nuclear energy than any other country, getting about three-quarters of its electricity from its 19 nuclear plants.

The French leader promised to develop renewable energy instead, saying his priority is weaning France’s economy from fuel that contributes to global warming.

What's noteworthy about this is that nuclear energy does not emit carbon dioxide. It's a green energy that the co-founder of Greenpeace has endorsed as a solution to global warming. So even if you believe in this retarded global warming/climate change hoax, eliminating nuclear power does nothing to help with that.

So just as Macron pushed to implement a fuel tax on the French people to fight climate change, he has also been trying to shut down the nation’s nuclear power plants. And again, this is a source of power that does not contribute to climate change.

You can’t square the two. The only explanation for this is that Macron is deliberately advocating an anti-energy agenda that hurts the French people. You can’t say that a tax on fuel has to be implemented to fight climate change just as you are trying to dismantle infrastructure which provides a source of green energy which does not emit carbon dioxide.

Macron is purposefully trying to increase energy prices. That’s the only logical conclusion one can make after analyzing everything he is doing. It’s no wonder the French people are pissed off.


The environmental lobby is very powerful and well-funded. They get most of their money from zillionaire jew financiers in order to promote globalism. And they have been vilifying nuclear energy for decades as something that is too dangerous, even though nuclear power stations are the safest places on Earth.

Proposals for “renewable / green energy” are based on lies. Solar and wind power will never produce more than a fraction of the world’s energy needs. And what happens to all those discarded batteries used in electric cars? Eventually they get sent to toxic waste dumps in the third world.

I don’t know what that Negro-loving faggot Macron is up to but it looks as if he is trying to hold France hostage by screwing around with their energy supply. He needs to be publicly executed for his crimes.


I 100 percent agree. Nuclear power has worked out very well for France yet he’s trying to dismantle the infrastructure for “renewable” energy. What’s remarkable is how he’s pushing this insanity in the midst of a popular uprising against the government.


what they never tell you is that ALL NUKE PLANTS LEAK RADIATION but it never poses a danger to the public… and… WE STILL DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THE HIGHLY RADIOACTIVE WASTE which is the main very dangerous problem with Fission reactors. it was the stored waste at Fukushima that blew up and has created a huge nuclear contamination site which is being dumped into the ocean… and another thing that they won’t tell you is that without gov subsidies, the nuke power industry would not be profitable.


@MightyWhitey It was a dumb idea for the japs to build a nuclear power station on top of an active fault line. We aren’t getting the full story about Fukashima but unless someone provides proof to the contrary I don’t believe the radiation from it is going to inflict massive amounts of damage to people and the environment.

As far as “nuclear waste” goes that too is overblown. The only waste I know of comes from spent uranium rods. There is no radioactive, glow in the dark green sludge like you see coming out of Mr. Burns’ nuclear plant on The Simpsons.


it was the spent rods that blew up at Fukushima and it wasn’t built on a fault line. the earthquake happened far out to sea and created a tsunami… the highly radioactive waste is a HUGE problem.
