bm278 Radioactive Waste and Germany’s Nuclear Future

Flattr this!

Germany plans to phase out nuclear energy by 2021. But there’s some question if the government will really do it. Now the news has gotten out that radioactive waste has been leaking in the storage area that was supposed to be secure for many years to come. Will this speed up the nuclear phase out? What can be done about the dangerous waste and who is to blame?

Michael Scott Moore writes for Der Spiegel and has covered this issue. He also blogs at and he is the author of Too Much of Nothing. He joins me to explain what is happening and how the German media are addressing this issue.
