Power bills are going up in 2018.
Georgia Power said on Wednesday that its customers’ bills would rise $12 a month starting in 2018 if the utility gains state and federal approvals to build two new 1,100 megawatt nuclear reactors at Plant Vogtle near Waynesboro.
You know, only France has a lower increase in greenhouse gas emissions than the U.S. From 1997 to 2004 the signers of the Kyoto Protocol excluding France increased their greenhouse gas emissions by 21.1%, the non-signors excluding the U.S. increased by 10%, the U.S. increased by 6.6%, and France by 5%.
I’ll note the irony that the non-signatories increased less than the signatories, though to be fair that’s mostly because those countries are crap holes in the deserts and jungles of the world without running water or regular electricity anyway.
In any event, France was lower than the U.S. due in large part to nuclear energy. We really need to get back to the atom in this country for power.
