Oh great. There are a lot of people out there who consider Nuclear power plants as a viable alternative to coal power plants because they are having less impact on the global warming.
Sadly, the global warming seems to have an impact on them and things become quite dangerous:
In any case, nuclear reactors are dangerous toys we should have never played with. Also, with the current technology, we can't tackle the climate change without reducing energy consumption (aka changing our way of living).
According to my local electric companies, demand for electricity for the Phoenix metro area has been flat for awhile, even before solar panels became big, despite larger population.
But that may be true for us, and not other regions.
Well, globally, that's not the case. E.g.
Of course, we should take into account that in some cases an increase is totally acceptable ,e.g. poor regions where the people buy house equipment, improving their living standards.
To my knowledge, we should change energy consumption habits if we want to avoid extinction. E.g. https://blog.p2pfoundation.net/can-we-trust-green-growth-diy-fact-check/2018/03/28
