Then how does hydro alone generate more electicity than nuclear? http://www.pewclimate.org/technology...ew/electricity
Almost 78%, actually. Talking about statistics... It's nice to pull France out of your hat, as the outlier, and ignore developed countries like Australia, Denmark, New Zealand or Norway, which use no nuclear power.
The problem with NEW technologies is that they have to make ground. Denmark is already generating 20% of its energy using wind, and are planning to reach 50% in the medium term.
Germany is generating about a quarter of its electricity from nuclear, and they are all getting shut off soon. That's the way to go.
