France, especially (and in spite of the decisions of the new French president that decided to close the oldest French power plant) still continue to promote and to support the idea that the only good way to produce energy is to use it ad vitam eternam
"Currently, there are 440 nuclear reactors in operation, and 60 more are planned." around the world, and let's not forget China and India that actually see their power needs literally explode... and without a good alternative, there's no doubt that they will continue this way:
Mainland China has 14 nuclear power reactors in operation, more than 25 under construction, and more about to start construction soon....
India had 16 nuclear power reactors in operation generating 4,560 MW while 4 other are under construction...
When this madness will stop??
