A problem with nuclear power I hadn’t thought of until I read Jeremy Rifkind’s Book The Zero Marginal Cost Society. 43% of France’s fresh water goes on cooling nuclear reactors and when it is returned to the earth it can’t be used for agriculture. During a heat wave in 2009 a third of France’s nuclear reactors had to be shut down. Don’t put too much trust in nuclear, therefore. Google Anita Flash “Heat spells trouble for France’s nuclear reactors”.
