Is Nuclear Power Europe’s Only Chance of Survival?

It’s one of the greatest movie quotes of all time.

In The Godfather: Part II, there’s a scene where Michael Corleone is talking to Hyman Roth about the unrest he witnessed in Cuba.

Corleone says, “I saw a strange thing today. Some rebels were being arrested. One of them pulled the pin on a grenade. He took himself and the captain of the command with him. Now, soldiers are paid to fight; the rebels aren't.”

Roth responds, “What does that tell you?

Corleone says, “They could win.”

In real life, we know how that unrest in Cuba panned out.

They, the communists, did win. 

And to this day, the Cuban people continue to suffer under one of the most brutal dictatorships in history. 

But this quote can also easily translate to today’s crisis in Ukraine.

Nothing to Lose

On Monday, after renewed shelling near the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station, the largest nuclear power plant in Europe was disconnected from the grid, thereby leaving critical cooling systems vulnerable and having to rely on emergency backup power. 

Invading Russians also initiated fighting at the now-defunct Chernobyl power plant back in March.

Vladimir Putin is playing a very dangerous game here, putting innocent civilians as well as his own troops in danger by toying with these nuclear power plants' vulnerability. 

As I’ve always said, it’s not nuclear power that’s unsafe, it’s people. And nowhere is this more apparent than with Vladimir Putin.

Make no mistake — he’ll burn down the whole damn place if he has to.


Even with nearly the entire international community condemning his actions, he doesn’t care.

Just like the rebels Michael Corleone spoke of, Putin can absolutely win because he’s got nothing to lose. And this is a reality that can’t be ignored. 

Truth is, Putin has every intention of suffocating Europe’s energy economy because that’s really the only leverage he has. And he’s going to use it. He already is. 

Look, we’re not far off from winter, and that’s when this is all going to get very real. 

Most of Europe is not equipped to handle cold weather without a steady supply of Russian energy. And with coal-fired power plants being shuttered and even some nuclear power plants shutting down, this winter is going to be a glimpse of what life is going to be like as Europe rapidly transitions away from Russian energy reliance. 

And while we know that solar and wind will absolutely be a very big part of this transition, nuclear power is also on the table again.

But this time, it’s not about centralized power plants that are sitting ducks just waiting to be attacked by psychopathic dictator gangsters. This time, energy gatekeepers in Europe are looking at a new nuclear technology that is not only far cheaper than conventional nuclear power plants but also far safer as this technology cannot be easily attacked or risk catastrophic meltdowns. 

The company behind this technology is public too, and you can buy shares of it today — before winter hits.

The technology is outlined in this special Energy and Capital presentation, as well as information on how to get a piece of this action for yourself. 

To a new way of life and a new generation of wealth…
