So Germany is shutting down its Nuclear Plants.
What are they going to use for energy — Unicorn Farts?
No, Coal. From the German English language news site The Local:
Germany to fund new coal plants with climate change cash
The German government wants to encourage the construction of new coal and gas power plants with millions of euros from a fund for promoting clean energy and combating climate change.
The plan has come under stiff criticism, but the Ministry of Economics and Technology defended the idea. A spokeswoman said it was necessary as the government switches from nuclear to other renewable energy sources and added that the money would promote the most efficient plants possible.
Funding for the initiative is limited to five percent of the energy and climate change fund’s annual expenditure between 2013 and 2016.
Annual funding for the new plants could total more than 160 million per year between 2013 and 2014 alone, the Berliner Zeitung newspaper reported on Wednesday.
