Climate change hitting France’s nuclear power – the technology that’s supposed to solve climate change !

Electricity prices across Europe are expected to rise as the heatwave sweeping Europe has crippled nuclear power output in France. State-owned electricity provider EDF must reduce or halt nuclear output when river temperatures reach certain thresholds under French legislation.

This is to ensure that the water used to cool the plants won’t harm the environment when it is pumped back out. Climbing temperatures in the Garonne River mean that production will likely be slowed at the Golfech nuclear plant in the South of the country from Thursday, Electricite de France SA said.
