If the Ukrainians destroy the cooling systems for Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant it will cause a meltdown and be the equivalent of a second, worse Chernobyl. That’s what they want. It’ll also tarnish the use of (and inhibit the calls for) nuclear energy throughout the West.
Who benefits from this? Green energy companies and backers of the Green New Deal, of course. They’re already vilifying nuclear energy as dangerous and environmentally unfriendly, despite the fact that it’s the safest and most eco-friendly energy source there is.
They promised the green transition would be “painful.” Part of that transition involves the closure, if not outright destruction of farms. We’re already seeing that in Germany and in the Netherlands. Nuclear fallout would just put it in overdrive.
Some people are so convinced that climate change is going to destroy all of the planet that they’re willing to starve much of the world’s population dependent on wheat crops.
You’re the carbon footprint they want to erase.
