The trains in Germany are ultra luxury and ultra reliable compared to the ones here! And ludicrously affordable. Believe me, I’ve compared. The €9 rail ticket deal sounds incredible as someone who has to pay the equivalent of ten times that for a return rail ticket to London Waterloo from within the south of England(!).Tell that to people who travel by train.
IMO there needs to be a Europe-wide Manhattan Project for renewables (I’m not anti-nuclear at all, I just realise it takes a long time, years, to get new nuclear power plants into operation). In the meantime, any European country who were aiming to shut down existing nuclear plants should really reverse their decisions on that..The one upside to the gas crisis in Europe is that there's a chance it'll get people to finally start looking into nuclear as a viable alternative. It's one thing to say "Oh we can just transition, very very gradually, to solar" when there's no deadline to wean yourself off fossil fuels, but when those fossil fuels have been forcibly cut off already...
