Just in, Germany has announced they will go nuke free after the nuclear disaster in Japan, they have reassessed the potential for disaster in their country and will abandon nuclear energy by 2022.
Yea for Germany for looking at the potential and understanding that there are other ways to give for their country. Geothermal, solar, and wind to name a few. The nuclear power head in Brussels says it is pure politics to cut nuclear power. I for one think it is a move in the right direction. Japan is a teaching all of us that nuclear power is not safe and that it has dire consequences.
This move will create new industries for new energy and I welcome the change and hope that the United States gets on the bandwagon. We need to look at alternative sources of power, and be creative when it comes to utilizing our natural resources.
