Change to Renewable Electricity

Reduce your CO2 output by approximately 20% and cut the financial basis of power providers that sell electricity made from fossil fuels or other dirty resources at the same time. Change to a company which sells renewable energy. This is very easy and takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes because your new provider will deal with everything that is required.

If you live in Germany have a look at naturstrom GmbH or Stadtwerke Schönau.

It will be a bit more expensive but if even students on tiny budgets can manage that, you can handle that too. If you own your house you can think about installing photovoltaic energy yourself and becoming independent. Start to save money and CO2 by monitoring your power consumption. Switch off power as often as you can. Switch off standby mode and adapters. Use LED lights.

Nuclear power is NOT GREEN.

The radioactive waste it produces is unbelievably poisonous and stays that way for an incredibly long time.

We have still not found a way to deal with it because there is no way to deal with it. Politicians and profit makers pretend they can look 10,000 or 100,000 years into the future and can promise to keep the waste safe over this period of time. But who can guarantee that we will still have a functioning society that far into the future? In Germany, they are just about to hand the future costs to the taxpayer (10/2016).

They also promised that, statistically speaking, there would never be a core meltdown i.e. worst-case nuclear power accident. But since the start of commercial nuclear power in the 1950s we have had two so far (Chernobyl and Fukushima). And is any nuclear power station on this planet even prepared for a solar flare like the one that almost hit earth in 2012 and definitely hit earth in 1859, from August 28 to September 21 (see below)?

For those who still support nuclear power: Here are two great BBC documentaries, one historic and one from 2016, on how advanced Western states like the UK `deal with it´:

Many are also concerned about the bad state of the nuclear reactor in Tihange, Belgium. In the summer of 2016, the state of North Rhine-Westfalia ordered billions of additional iodine tablets, in order to try to protect its
