Germany’s renewables experiment is over.

By 2025 it will have spent $580B to make electricity nearly 2x more expensive & 10x more carbon-intensive than France’s.

The reason renewables can’t power modern civilization is because they were never meant to. forbes.com/sites/michaels…
It gets worse. In order to prevent electricity prices from rising further, or becoming overly dependent on Russian natural gas, Germany will next year destroy the ancient Hambach forest in order to mine the dirty brown coal underneath it.

Now, it is threatening to destroy “a mystical place full of giant, gnarled, centuries-old trees, rare animals and fabulous castles... the home of the Brothers Grimm's fairy tales & the oldest nature reserve in Germany.”

Why? To throw up wind turbines:

“Wind areas border on natural habitats of wild fauna & flora in which strictly protected bats have found rare refuge”

“‘It makes no sense at all. It's the headlong and forced adoption of wind power no matter the consequences... all this from the Green Party. That's astonishing’”
Now, scientists in Germany say wind turbines are contributing significantly to the “insect die-off.”

“A 27-year long population monitoring study in Germany revealed a dramatic 76% decline in flying insect biomass.”

The problem with nuclear is that it demands neither the radical remaking of society nor the fantasy of harmonizing with nature

All it does is grow societal wealth while decoupling the economy from environmental destruction

No wonder they hate it so much
