Here is an excerpt from an article in the New York Times on June 20, 2006:

While you're at bashing Trittin and the Greens, do you know what kind of governemtn rules Germany presently? You should be bashing the SPD (and also the CDU).

1.0 billion kilowatt-hours went to address a decline in hydroelectric power in that period - which may be drought related.

How kind of you. In fact, other increases were in no small part also weather-related.

The growth in renewables cannot even keep up with the growth in demand.

Do you know what linear and exponential mean?

Germany's output of carbon dioxide increased by 15 million tons

Unfortunately, that involved primarily traffic.

Climate change will not be slowed without nuclear power.

Climate change will not be slowed with nuclear power. Even if giving all the flat baseload, it will be only a small part of primary energy use. (If I'm generous and assume future increases in efficiency, 15%.)
