Nuclear energy is not the solution to climate change

The Greens/EFA group has always opposed nuclear energy and instead defended and promoted a decentralised and transparent energy-provision system that is based on energy efficiency and renewable energies.

Yet, the problems are very far from been solved and the neighborhoods are still bearing the scars of the earthquake and tsunami. Clearly, the world must learn lessons from the Fukushima catastrophe. The Greens demand that the EU turn its back to this dangerous and expensive energy source as quickly as possible and invest in renewable energy sources instead...
