Ofcourse Yonni, but I say do both. Scale up renewables and start building plants now, instead of building extra gas or coal plants as some countries are doing to keep up with demand (or even shutting down perfectly fine nuclear plants as octavious mentioned) :(

I would like the politicians to invest in both renewable AND nuclear, because I do not see pure renewables providing enough energy by 2040 (or 2050). Plus as you mentioned, I believe we should have some form of "guaranteed" energy production to balance the energy load across the day or across different weather when renewables can't keep up with demand.
