Sep 7th, 2010 | By | Category: Featured Story

Every since Chernobyl puffed its radioactive plume over Europe in 1986, Germany has been deeply suspicious of nuclear power. Opposition to Atomkraft is at the center of the country’s green movement, and almost a decade ago the country decided to phase out its nuclear plants by 2021.

Yesterday, however, Germany’s coalition government decided to extend the life of the country’s nuclear power plants by an average of 12 years.
