Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You know that in countries without nuclear, every MWh of wind power is less coal (or gas) being burned. I do not question your push for nuclear at all, but it would be nice if you could acknowledge that wind can be a significant part of the solution.

It will never be the sole solution, and I have never claimed it will be. But it is a real part of the solution. and in terms of PR, nuclear will probably be a lot more palatable if it is presented as being used to "a bare minimum" after renewables have been pushed as much as possible.

As you point out, that will still leave a major role for nuclear, but it's a much smarter position to take in public ("filling the gap" rather than "the only realistic solution"). Think about it!
