Spotify should run its servers on 100% rebewable energy. Other music streaming portals do it! Why not Spotify?

Marked as new idea.
Why would you care what energy is used as long as it works and btw renewable energy isnt the cleaniest energy nuclear energy is much cleaner heres a video explaining this: https://youtu.be/lL6uB1z95gA
Dude dont redirect our topic i was talking about the way things work not about things that work, that was very stupid example... i mean even comparing cars that use different fuel would be a better example but lets talk about nuclear energy now...
Okay lets add up Fukushima and Chernobyl disasters and nuclear energy still will take less lifes compared to other energy sources including renewable energy and if we will look at todays statistics less than one person per year dies because of nuclear energy, also nuclear power plants take much less space compared to renewable energy which can take upto 1/5 of the country to power it all, also the only subproduct of nuclear plants is nuclear waste which is recycled and the parts that cant be recycled are safely kept in the containers but who knows we might be able to recycle these too in the future, and if we will talk about lifes many many more people die building and maintaining these sturdy renewable energy sources and we need much more resources like metal compared to nuclear plants, also renewable energy is much worse for nature, tons of birds die every year just by getting sucked into wind turbines, many fertile fields or forests are cut just to build those solar panels and if you will look at countries like France and Germany you will see that french people with their nuclear power plants pay less money per kilowat compared to Germans with their renewable energy, also renewable sources dont produce energy continiously because sun doesnt shine all the time, wind doesnt blow all the time, and water sources like lakes can freeze in different seasons and geographical zones, but nuclear power plants produce energy continiously for years without stopping, bonus points is that to cool down nuclear plants use water making warm water cheaper for people of that country...
I hope you understood now that nuclear energy is much cleaner compared renewable energy and if you didnt understood until now other music services using renewable energy is just cheap marketing trick to make them more appealing to people.
Sure all people have their own opinion even if it's wrong and the one missinformed and missing huge points is you, if you dont believe everything i iust sayed you can google it and please next time find some information about the topic before writing your comments because you might look foolish
I actually dont know anything about state of nuclear power plants in Germany, but power plants in other countries are actually fairly safe infact because of all safety measures cancer rates around power plants are usually lower than in other places, also the chance of meltdown is very low, todays power plants are much weaker than russias chernobyl ones and are built by many of specialists with many security measures and if we're still talking about safety i found some actual numbers, its how much people die because of each source per 1 trillionth kilowat:
What this means is that nuclear energy still takes less lifes than other sources per trillionth kwh including fukushima and chernobyl accidents and in the U.S that never had these accidents nuclear energy takes 0.1 lifes per trillionth kwh while Hydro energy takes 5 lifes.
I agree with you that nuclear waste takes huge amounts of money to store, but price per kilowat in countries like France shows that these investments are still cheaper than investing into renewable energy and in the end the tax payers will pay less.
And yes the nuclear waste takes some place to store but it doesnt take up 1/5 of a country and i think that its better to store some waste in a hole underground than not being able to use 1/5 of a country.
Also people every year find new ways to recycle this waste, not long ago some guys made a diamond battery using nuclear waste, sure its output is weak but it could power low power devices like IoT for decades (around 5000 years), and people find new ways to recycle that shet of a nuclear waste.
Sure i agree that nuclear energy isnt perfect, but i think that its the best thing that we can do until we will create nuclear fusion plants
