ZDF German TV: Documentation on Nuclear Power in Germany: Presumed Dead but Still Kicking
The German ZDF TV network aired a 45 minute documentary on the history, economics and politics of as well as lobbying action for nuclear power in Germany, featuring R. Andreas Kraemer of Ecologic Institute. The film by Ulrike Brödermann and Michael Strompen reveals how political influence can trump economics and risk management for a comeback of nuclear power (in German only).
The statements by R. Andreas Kraemer shown in the ZDF documentary are based on the Workshop Summary and Conclusions: A Transatlantic Agenda for Global Nuclear Governance.
