The Federal government has rescinded the license extension of the Turkey Point nuclear power plant, located near Miami. The stated reason is that global climate change will cause sea levels to rise, and the plant’s environmental impact statement didn’t take that into account.

So instead, we will continue to rely upon coal plants. There is no way that wind and solar can make up for the loss of this plant. That plant produces 12 gigawatt hours of electric power per year.

In comparison, every solar panel in the state of Florida produces 7.5 gigawatt hours each year, combined.

I wonder what would happen if DeSantis just said ‘screw you, we’re continuing to operate it anyways’?

    There would be a mysterious accident that would kill a lot of people and be all DeSantis’ fault. Likely be prosecuted, mauve civil war.

    I hope he does it

      Considering the competence displayed thus far by our so-called betters, they’d botch it.

      And at that point things get REALLY squirrelly.

“In comparison, every solar panel in the state of Florida produces 7.5 gigawatt hours each year, combined.”

Only when the sun is shining.

    That’s a total production number, taking periods of darkness into account.

      I figured so, but my tongue-in-cheek remark was meant to point out that solar power is only available less than half the time 🙂

I’ve never seen such single-minded devotion to the idea of “let’s make the normies suffer.”

Even if sea levels do rise, and there’s plenty of evidence that most of the claimed sea level rise is actually from the land holding the tidal gauges subsiding, it’s not like they’re going to go up three feet overnight. Why shut down the power plant now when there are decades to prepare?

The only possible explanation is to hurt people. They’re terrified of nuclear power. They’re terrified of that which they don’t understand.

Won’t this make it easier for the sea turtles and their hatchlings return to the sea?

Think of the children……

Is the “science” these morons follow telling them that all this globull warming is going to happen overnight ? If so, why aren’t their political leaders moving from their beachfront mansions yesterday ? And how about Chocolate Jesus , Obarky the Enlightened One ? Isn’t he building a beachfront love nest in Hawaii to cuddle with Big Mike ?? This is just another piece of the fear and control puzzle. Weak-minded followers will charge over the cliff like the lemmings they are. There has to come a point when we tell them “NO” and make them understand we mean it. THEN the Great Culling can occur, and we’ll ensure this crap never happens again.
My apologies if I have offended anyone; haven’t had that second cuppa yet….

By shutting down Turkey Creek the manatee population is threatened. The outflow channel is a prime breeding, wintering and calving location for manatees.

Be funny if they have to keep the plant open to keep manatee numbers up.

    Nuclear One in Russellville, Arkansas, had operated for decades without any problems. At least until some out-of-state “activists” showed up.

    N1 has several cooling towers, but it also uses nearby Lake Dardanelle as a heat sink. The discharge temperature is several degrees higher than the rest of the lake, which the local fish find to be quite hospitable. It’s a favorite location for fishermen, and tournaments are held there.

    So, the “activists” swanned in with their “destroying the lake ecology” propaganda, and wanted the reactors shut down instanter. They were probably used to cowering Utility Commissions and sympathetic media; that they came up against were thousands of ANGRY fishermen and the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission, which had been part of the approval process for the power plant, and had meticulously kept records of how the lake was changed by it. (for the better, as far as the locals were concerned)

    The activists blustered a bit and then skedaddled back to Yankeeland where they came from, tails between their legs.

In the event of a sea level rise Nancy Pelosi’s mansion is a wash / awash. The nuke will be shutdown as the new Florida barrier reef won’t need the electricity. There, we took your silly climate change argument into consideration.

They want you in the dark starving because then you are easier to control.
Control is always the real motivation and the issue is never the issue with lefty Long Marchers.

    Should food supplies get to that point, politicians, “elites”, and their servants and followers are made out of meat.

one of the big ticket items of the “global reset” is a lot of people need to die…they don’t care how as long as people die…shortages of food, made up viruses, even worse vaxxes for made up viruses, people freezing to death or dropping dead in florida and texas…they want to limit the amount of people on the planet…
