extremely detailed and interesting conversation about the most important issues for South Africa. As Hugo points out France has re-nationalized EDF and is building more nuclear power stations.This interview continues with many highly interesting insights such as:
Nuclear provides baseload demand :the basis of industrializing the economy.
Zuma wanted to fast-track additional nuclear to provide 9.6 Giga watts of nuclear energy. If the environmental ngos such as Earth Rise had not destroyed this, South Africa would have minimal LOADSHEDDING today
Cost: nuclear becomes cheaper over time. Solar/Wind increase in cost
Cheapest energy for South Africa is coal > natural gas> nuclear> and the least cheap is wind/solar
Why does the `green/renewable ` lobby call for using natural gas in South Africa? Because it has to be imported. Why would South Africans choose to become geopolitically dependent on another country? Who is pushing for that? The National Endowment for Democracy is pushing for that.
Replacing coal plants in Mpumalanga, Limpopo Province, with solar/wind : this is a scam! It will enrich Patrice Motsepe and his crowd and will further impoverish the current landowners. Germany commits national suicide. Andre de Ruyter`s destructive mission.
