German energy policy is among the greatest threats to the European economy, and if there is a silver lining, it is that German voters are beginning to see it. Recent polls suggest that in a country that was a nuclear-skeptical country, a consensus in favor of nuclear power is solidifying. If only the politicians in Berlin would catch up.
The main controversy now concerns extending the life of the country’s three remaining nuclear reactors, which provide about 6% of electricity but are due to shut down at the end of the year. According to a survey by Spiegel magazine published over the weekend, 78 percent of those surveyed are in favor of operating these power plants at least until the summer of 2023, and 67 percent would be in favor of operating the reactors for another five years.
