Recently somebody came here with the information that in the Germany they have at peak already the whole "12.1GWh" produced daily from solar and implying that if anything then we need the nuclear power only from our sun.
So let's look kids how much the 12.1GWh in the Germany is.
In 2008 they consumed 631 TWh in Germany. It is on average 1727 GWh a day. 1727 divided by 12.1 = 142. So then 1 divided by 142 = 0.007. -Seven thousands of the consumed electricity in Germany, the leading solar superpower they already produce using the solar powerplants. Perfect.
This stunning figure we see 10 years after the year 2000 when the Germany passed the nuclear phase-out which will close all the evil nuclear powerplants until 2021 (pushed through by the prime minister G. Schroeder, who then became the CEO of the natural gas pipeline company Nordstream, planning to bring the natural gas from Russia, after having been hired by the investment bank Rothschild just after he strucked a billion euro deal with Gazprom) and after all the large subsidies pushed by EU. What a progress.
What a perfect source which has at the night exactly same wattage as the nuclear powerplant (now in Fukushima). What a wonderful renewable power source - it renews itself every morning!
In the evil nuclear powerplants the Germans (still) produce 23% (27.2% in 2004!) of electricity. 0.23 divided by 0.007 = 32.85. Multiplied then by the ten years of the previous promising development since 2000 = 328 years.
So here are the good news for the Germans: Just another 328 years of the same promising solar energy development and they'll produce from it the same amount of the electricity as they do now in the nuclear powerplants. It will work just during the day, but it will perfectly help the German industry of candles...
And now for the bad news: From coal and natural gas they produce in Germany 61% of electricity now. In the splendid year 2339 with the present speed of the solar energy growth in Germany (said to be the fastest in the world) will this industry get on par there with the present electricity production from the nuclear powerplants. But even if the power consumption will rest the same as now - as it doesn't much look likely - there will be no, but really NO coal (maybe a piece in a museum) then. Nowhere. According to the World Coal Association there are coal reserves for 119 years. The known natural gas reserves are estimated to be 190 trillion cubic meters. The present world consumption of the natural gas is by the UN estimated to be more than 3.3 trillion cubic meters yearly. 190 divided by 3.3 = 58. Which means that even if the world natural gas consumption would remain the same from now on then the known reserves of the natural gas will last just 58 years. And with the promising so called fracking, which needs loads of fresh water we already now have problems to have enough, it will be presumably also very precarious then.
From what the Germans will produce the 77% rest of their electricity if we assume they'll have same energy consumption then? From the wind? And what if it will not blow, there will be January and night? Will the vast majority of the Germans supporting the brilliant Greenpiss ideas about the nuclear energy freeze and starve to death including the local Turks by the year 2339, or very possibly much sooner, and the Czechs will expand to the west and the French their evil nukeplants to the east, or they'll eventually come back to their senses?
The world apparently wants to be deluded. So should we abandon the reasonable argumentation, which anyway often ends just with the name-calling from the side of the "valued members" and start fervently support the magnificent green ideas in whole the temperate zones except our countries -to let finally e.g. the Germans, Americans, Italians... simply the nations with the exuberant histories of the fascist government and with the dully public supporting it same way fervently as now the nuclear power phase-out too -to spontaneously cease from the face of this Earth?
