Nuclear plan is correct

Bravo Hulot! (Minister to delay decommissioning nuclear power stations).

It might be the smallest of steps in the right direction but at last someone has realised the obvious: the wind doesn’t blow to order, the sun doesn’t shine at night and electricity cannot be stored, so for France to arbitrarily commit to reducing its nuclear capacity and rely on so-called renewable sources of electricity will either hugely increase carbon dioxide emissions because of the need to burn coal, oil or gas to compensate or our lights will go out and our heating off.
