  1. Bitcoin miners have no real environmental footprint (other than those that run off their own generators).

    They just use electricity it’s not their fault if the powers that be don’t cleanly generate that electricity especially as clean options exist (nuclear where available and solar/wind otherwise).

    It’s entirely the German governments fault that their citizens must burn coal and not the end users. It was the government that shut nuclear power plants not end users.

  2. tldr; Bitcoin miners, under fire for their sizable environmental footprint, are forging partnerships with owners of struggling nuclear-power plants with electricity to spare. The matchups have the potential to solve key issues facing each industry, executives and analysts say: Electricity-hungry bitcoin miners want stable and carbon-free power, while nuclear plants facing competition from cheaper power sources need new customers.

  3. The made up climate change is not about helping environment – anyway like 90% of gases (also other gases besides the heavily fetishized CO₂) are coming from China, India and such places.

    It is about political power.

    They will find a problem with nuclear power too, just you watch. Oh no my hecking radiactive waste. Oh no the pollution from mining uranium. Or anything they come up with.

    That being said, nuclear-powered Bitcoin is pretty cool :3

    Edit: yeah just look at comments. What a reddit moment: but the WW3, but atomic bombs, but nuclear waste. And one conspiracy theoretic that skipped logic “nuclear powers take power than they produce”… uh right.

What do you think?
