PRESS RELEASE: EU-Energy Minsiter: Nuclear power to be washed green
EU-Energy Minister: Nuclear power to be washed green
“It’s hard to believe: nuclear power is once again to be made socially acceptable through the back door. After France already wanted to make changes afterwards in the negotiations on taxonomy, i.e. the setting of criteria for sustainable investment, efforts are now being made to save the nuclear industry from decline. It is particularly perfidious that the energy ministers want to delete the safety aspect for this. Nuclear power is neither safe nor sustainable!
The Federal Republic of Germany, in particular, which decided to phase out nuclear power, must not sacrifice the security of European citizens to the interests of the nuclear lobby. I expect Mr. Altmaier to say no to this Council decision and to work towards a reform of the EURATOM Treaty and a Europe-wide nuclear phase-out within the framework of the German Council Presidency.”
