‘Nuclear is neither green nor sustainable” – Austria to sue European Commission if it approves nuclear power for financial incentives

 Austria’s chancellor responded to the news by saying “nuclear power is neither green nor sustainable”. “I cannot understand the decision of the EU,” Karl Nehammer said. He said he would back his environment minister, Leonore Gewessler, in pursuing legal action at the European Court of Justice if the plans go ahead.

“This decision is wrong,” Ms Gewessler said. “The EU Commission today agreed its greenwashing programme for nuclear energy and [the fossil fuel] natural gas.” Luxembourg has also said it will
join in legal action. The EU has set itself a goal of becoming climate neutral by 2050 and the Commission argues that to get there, a great deal of private investment is needed. Its proposals are meant to guide
investors.

    Thought for the day: One gallon of petrol is composed of 89 tons of prehistoric organic matter. 89 tons. An average pine tree weighs 2 tons.
    Think how inefficient your car really is.
    Think about the uranium radium and heavy metals that have accumulated in that crude oil over millions of years and is dumped into the environment from oil refineries and residues that are not completely distilled from the oil, to burn with the gas into car exhuast
    Humans are so stupid

    On the same day we surpassed 900,000 American cumulative confirmed Covid deaths, yet another near 4,000 lost lives.
    This is horrifying, getting so little attention relative to the mostly unnecessary, seemingly boundless toll of deaths
