Germany pulls plug on nuclear energy once and for all

Just how backward is Australia when it comes to Climate Change?

Germany is breaking with atomic energy once and for all, announcing the country’s last three operating nuclear power stations will be shut down over the next 12 months. The move draws the final curtain on its decades-long use of atomic power and stands as a testament to the national commitment to clean, green energy. The decision to phase out nuclear power and shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy was first taken by the centre-left government of Gerhard Schroeder in 2002.
