Germany says NO to Nuclear Energy

Wall Street Journal; by Dave Duncan

Germany on Monday said it would close all of its 17 nuclear reactors by 2022, a sharp policy reversal that will make it the first major economy to quit atomic power in the wake of the nuclear crisis in Japan. Germany’s move marks a contrast with the U.S. and other countries that have largely stuck to plans to continue pursuing nuclear power. WSJ’s Patrick McGroarty is in Berlin and he has the reasoning behind this decision.

  1. I think it's funny that in the amount of time it will take Germany to close 17 plants, it will take the united states to just build one.

  2. I'm happy to see Germany weighing it's options, with the events happening in Japan, nuclear power is a great, but dangerous method of creating power.
