Contribution Of Nuclear Energy Worldwide Falls: A Civilization In Decline

The World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2014 shows that the share of global power production from nuclear energy has fallen to the lowest level since the 1980s. Even leaving aside the shutdown of Japan’s 48 reactors following Fukushima, the number of operating plants has fallen to 388, 50 less than the peak in 2002.

Nuclear power’s share of global energy production has dramatically fallen from 17.6% in 1996 to 10.8%. The shift in new generating capacity (as we know) has been to “renewables,” where in Spain, for example, more power is generated by wind than any other source, beating nuclear energy for the first time.

The average age of the world’s reactors has climbed to 28 years, and more than 170 units, or 44% of the total, are more than 30 years old. In the U.S., in particular, older, “non-competitive,” plants have been shut down, thanks to enormous government subsidies for renewables, and the temporary natural gas boom, thanks to fracking. New construction is not even keeping up with the shutdowns.

Of the 67 reactors under construction, at least 49 are behind schedule; some due to the hysterical temporary halt in construction after Fukushima; others, due to the inflationary increase in costs; and some because the depression-collapse in growth of electricity “demand” (so-called) has postponed when new capacity will be “needed,” leading utilities to stretch out construction.

    Nuclear energy can help increase the population and progress mankind just as oil did. The Club of Rome cannot allow this otherwise their Global 2000 agenda will crumble. To understand what is happening right now then please read a book called ‘Nuclear Power: Anathema to the New World Order’ by Dr John Coleman. What is strange is that this book is no longer pushed and at a time when it is most important.

    Nuclear Power: Anathema to the New World Order

    One of the greatest advances made by man was the discovery of nuclear energy as a source of cheap and safe electricity. It promised to transform the world within a time frame of a maximum of three decades. In order to understand world events in both the areas of politics and economics, one must have a thorough understanding of religion and secret societies which play a leading role in world events. Secret societies, more so in 2008 than ever before, greatly influence the course of momentous events. The rich and the powerful belong to secret societies that most ordinary people have never, even heard about, and it comes as a surprise to many to find out that such notable personages the Elizabeth, Queen of England is a member of a number of them, all of which play a big role in shaping the course of events.

    Nuclear power generated electricity is particularly hated by the leaders of secret societies, the men the Bible calls “spiritual men who walk in darkness and whose deeds are evil.” The Bible foreshadowed the coming of plague pandemics such as AIDS and SARS, ordained for the world’s “excess” population diminution by these leaders. Nuclear power is hated by the elite because it brings new hope to millions of people who will aspire to a better life once nuclear power is running and available in every city and town throughout the world. The very poor, the downtrodden and the unwanted see new hope in nuclear generated power, as the book goes to some length to explain, the very thing the Illuminati members are so much against. They don’t want an extension of life for those who would otherwise die at a very early age in such countries and India and China.

    The book makes it clear that if nuclear power is allowed to reach its full capacity and its full promise, the world will take on a new lease of life that will be of unmatched benefit to all people of all nations. It also makes it clear why there are powerful people who see this as an unmitigated disaster and who will do all in their considerable power to prevent nuclear power coming into full flower.

    where can we find this book?

      I have no idea and it is very suspicious. I wonder if its a similar situation to Freemason Lindsey Williams, remember when that liar claimed he was told to remove is energy non-crisis work? If this is true then Coleman may have been told by his masters to remove the book now we are right in that very time, it may have been okay before but not now. We do need to get a copy of this book!

    Yes! I want this one and a copy of Tex Marrs book about how oil is not from fossils or a different relevant book about it. Ive been really looking into the brics info and especially how it relates to energy. Ive also noticed that the gold bank is always being measured in “western” terms, i think this is a incorrect way to measure the value of the BRICS bank.
