German nuclear power station’s cooling towers demolished

The two cooling towers of a former nuclear power plant in southwestern Germany were demolished early Thursday in a pair of explosions. Such demolitions usually attract many sightseers, but large assemblies weren’t allowed given the measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Philippsburg plant’s two reactors were shut down in 2011 and 2019 as part of a plan to exit nuclear power.

If this is one of the decommissioned plants that happened after Fukushima it is an incredibly absurd decision.

Germany: Wants to reduce C02 emissions. Also Germany: Let's not use any nuclear power.

Being beholden to Putin for power is a stupid stupid move. But, that's what you get when you vote in Merkel election after election.
