France extends lifetime of its oldest nuclear reactors via Star Tribune


PARIS — France’s nuclear safety authority agreed Thursday to extend the operational lifetime of the country’s 32 oldest nuclear reactors by a decade to as much as 50 years.

The public electricity company that operates the nuclear plants, EDF, is in charge of ensuring the safety of the reactors, which had previously been intended to run for 40 years.

The nuclear authority said in a statement that it finds that measures planned by EDF “open the prospect of continued operation of these reactors for a further ten years.”

Nuclear energy currently provides about 70% of French electricity, more than in any other country. France aims to reduce that proportion to 50% by 2035 while boosting renewable energy.


Most nuclear reactors were built in the 1980s, meaning they could be shut down in the 2030s.

Germany’s environment minister criticized the nuclear safety authority’s decision.

    Recently I came across a dark link that I quickly followed to find that my wife and I were on a site with over one hundred thousand other members. I found it while I was scouring the dark web looking for information on the dark web. I quickly realized that there were plenty of sites such as ours, but most were either not in existence or too aged to be of any use. So, what was the point of joining a site which was only half made and just waiting to die off? I soon learned that by making use of a dark link finding tool that I could easily find sites that were just dying out because they were never taken off the server.
