The Nuclear Power Endgame in Germany
San Francisco Chronicle and AICGS Advisor
Kraemer, R. Andreas 2011: "The Nuclear Power Endgame in Germany". San Francisco Chonicle, A - 22.
"Germany may well be regarded as the nation where the endgame of nuclear power began." Economics, risk assessments and public pressure lead many countries to halt nuclear power and shift to green energy. After an Op-Ed in the San Francisco Chronicle, R. Andreas Kraemer of Ecologic Institute explains in the AICGS Advisor the German decision and its impact on nuclear proliferation.
The Op-Ed piece [English] was published by the San Francisco Chronicle on 17 June 2011.
The arguments behind the short article are laid out in more depth in an essay [English] published by the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies in their AICGS Advisor.
