Nuclear Luddites ~ Euro's Abandoning Future...

In a knee-jerk reaction to recent Japanese tsunami disaster and safety malfeasance, both Germany and Switzerland have renounced nuclear power joining even more backwards Italy. This neo-Luddite move signals that incompetents are in charge and listening to the greenie-weenie protesterati. According to the AP...
"Europe's economic powerhouse, Germany, announced plans Monday to abandon nuclear energy over the next 11 years, outlining an ambitious strategy in the wake of Japan's Fukushima disaster to replace atomic power with renewable energy sources. Chancellor Angela Merkel said she hopes the transformation to more solar, wind and hydroelectric power serves as a roadmap for other countries. "We believe that we can show those countries who decide to abandon nuclear power -- or not to start using it -- how it is possible to achieve growth, creating jobs and economic prosperity while shifting the energy supply toward renewable energies," Merkel said. Merkel's government said it will shut down all 17 nuclear power plants in Germany -- the world's fourth-largest economy and Europe's biggest -- by 2022"
How disgustingly stupid.
