Nuclear power plants have so much shielding that EMP and solar flares would not affect them. The vulnerability is in the grid. Closing older carbon-fired plants is a leftist strategy. They want us to think green energy can replace fossil fuels and nuclear energy. That is a utopian pipe dream.I'll agree with you on everything but the build more nuclear plants. Only time I'd be amenible to seeing more of those built is if we harden our freaking grid against solar flares and EMPs, otherwise they are accidents waiting to happen. Also close or update all the older plants that should have been retired a decade ago.
