Bruno Comby, President of Environmentalists for Nuclear: 120 billion euros have been wasted in France in recent years, just before the country is entering a major financial crisis caused by the COVID 19 virus and a violent economic recession. This is the total cost of the existing program for wind and solar in France. The money would have been better spent using half of that amount (60 billion €) on building 15 to 20 brand new modern hospitals and upgrading the excellent but with a constantly decreasing budget health care system. Instead the French government prefers to halt operations at the highly profitable, recently modernized (post-Fukushima) NPP of Fessenheim, and announces another 12 similar NPP closures, based on absolutely no technical or safety issue.

France - Nuclear Power Station Fessenheim is being closed down prematurely due to anti-nuclear power politics. Meanwhile, a new coal-fired plant across the Rhine River far down stream in Dateln, Germany is coming on line. But Germany is switching from coal and nuclear to wind and solar. Don't try to understand the logic of politicians, wind and solar fans and extreme environmentalists. German and French engineers will do their best with whatever energy technologies the politicians mandate.
