It was mostly just replacing a big chunk of coal-fired electricity with natural gas as the fuel. Obviously, more needs to be done. Nuclear power needs to be a big part of the solution.

But the first thing the environmentalists want to do is shut down all of the nuclear plants. As long as this is their policy, nothing meaningful will ever happen. See Germany for its Energiewende failure. Shutting down nuclear was priority #1. Now, Macron wants to imitate (or placate) Angela Merkel.
