Coal And Nuclear On The Nose

In an article titled The energy [r]evolution has begun i found this great little graphic. For all the different energy types, it shows the amount installed and the amount dismantled.

In the article, they highlighted the shift away from coal - with more stations being closed than opened. I also noticed that further along, the same things is happening with nuclear. Nuclear people like to say how much nuclear energy there is in Europe, but they don't often mention that it's from decades ago, and being phased out.

Also, it's great to see that wind and solar PV in the top 3 for energy being installed. Let's just hope that the non-European countries begin to see the light. (That wasn't meant to be a solar pun)
