Do you think other countries will follow Germany's lead and disable their nuclear power?
Compared to what? If we must HAVE energy to use then we have to look at the energy source and see what it takes to get power from it.
Coal: Many people have died getting coal out of the ground and into the firebox. Miners, handlers (train wrecks, truckers, locomotive engineers) Huge volumes of coal are required to make suitable quantities of energy. Think of how far a nuclear sub could go if it had to switch over to coal!
OIL: Same as above. A war ship like a carrier can use up to 300,000 gallons of oil each day! The logistics of keeping oil fired generating plants running reeks of danger.
SOLAR: Very safe, once installed, but material needs are frought with danger--lumber, steel, aluminum, glass, copper--all have their risks.
NUCLEAR: I think Germany is having a "knee jerk" reaction to the crys of an uniformed minority. What better alternative is there? Except to not use energy. Let them live with the trains, filled with thousands of tons of coal, rolling through their towns, day and night. A nuclear power plant can run for years on one fueling, and when the plant needs refueling, there still remains over 90% of the original uranium, which can be recovered and put into a new core. I'll take the risk of nuclear power!
