German Nuclear Shutdown Will Damage European Economy

Germany now plans to gradually shut down all of its nuclear plants, with the last being closed in 2022. This is bad news for Europe in general and Germany in particular as it will lead to higher electricity prices, especially given the fact that the anti-"climate change" zeal will prevent or at least limit its replacement with coal.

The decision rested apparently on the tsunami-induced problems of nuclear power in Japan. In other news, following the same logic, Singapore will soon invest heavily in snow removal equipment and Nepal will soon invest in a Navy.

Idiocy from a country once known for its technical brilliance in manufacturing. How can you continue to manufacture anything without inexpensive power from nuclear in Germany? A real shame.
