Germany today uses coal as its primary energy source, thanks to 'eco' Merkel

In today's Germany, 'green' and 'renewable' energy providers are unable to supply the demand created by nuclear power's demise. So, how does Merkel and Germany's government respond? They shifted their focus to coal. Coal will be the country's major source of energy in 2021.

Angela Merkel is an excellent illustration of how a "green" leader may force his or her country to rely on the most polluting energy source available. Germany used to derive more than a quarter of its energy from nuclear power facilities, which produced no CO2 emissions. But instead of increasing zero emissions nuclear energy, Chancellor Angela Merkel announced on 30 May 2011, that Germany's 17 nuclear power stations will be shut down by 2022, in a policy reversal following Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.

This meant that Germany would have to generate its electricity from other sources. The German government promised that this would come from “green” and “renewable” sources. The German government did substantially increased their energy from green sources like wind farms, which now account for around 25% of Germany's energy production, however, that proved not to be enough.

Let's fast forward to the year 2021. Germany, like the rest of Europe, is experiencing an energy crisis brought on by unstable green (mainly wind) energy. Wind farms in Germany and around Europe cannot produce enough electricity due to a lack of wind.

In today's Germany, “green” and “renewable” energy producers can't meet the demand that was caused by the loss of nuclear power. So what does Merkel and Germany's gov do? They turned to coal. In 2021 coal is now the largest source of energy in the country.

Coal, in case people didn't know, produces more pollution than any other energy source. So in today's Germany the largest source of power is the one that causes the most pollution, while the energy source that provided zero CO2 emissions has been all but removed by the “green” and “eco friendly” German government headed by Angela Merkel./.
