France went all-in on nuclear power back in the 1970s and it’s paying dividends.
According to the Financial Times, French households now pay nearly half the price for electricity as “green”-powered Germany, which has been shutting down nuclear power plants and dumping money into “renewables.”

France’s treasonous leader Emmanuel Macron, who revealed plans to shut down 14 nuclear reactors after getting elected, has done a complete 180 ahead of the French election come April in a bid to salvage his poor poll numbers.
Though Macron has spent the last four years funneling billions of euros into “green” energy schemes, on Tuesday he unveiled a new plan to “invest 1bn in nuclear power by the end of this decade,” FT reported.
“The number one objective is to have innovative small-scale nuclear reactors in France by 2030 along with better waste management,” he said while announcing a “France 2030” investment plan on Tuesday.
Polls have shifted in favor of nuclear power now that energy prices are surging and the lies we were all told about the dangers of nuclear power are being debunked.
National Rally leader Marine Le Pen responded to Macron’s plan by saying she would not only build more proven, full-scale nuclear power plants and support investment in small-scale reactors but also “end all subsidies for renewable energy” and “take down France’s wind turbines,” Reuters reported Thursday.
“Wind and solar, these energies are not renewable, they are intermittent,” Le Pen told RTL radio. “If I am elected, I will put a stop to all construction of new wind parks and I will launch a big project to dismantle them.”
That’s a plan I can get behind!
