Success or debacle of Biden’s climate plans depends on whether modern nuclear energy is central component; Comparison of France and Germany since 1980 proves that nuclear reduces carbon and lowers costs, while German method of dumping nuclear for solar cells and windmills yields more carbon and increased costs; The choice depends on public opinion and Congress!
