The federal government is sticking to the nuclear phase-out in mid-April – Environment Minister Lemke emphasizes the uncontrollability of nuclear power.
Federal Environment Minister Steffi Lemke has confirmed that the use of nuclear power in Germany should end in a good four weeks. “The nuclear phase-out in mid-April will remain,” said the Green politician to the newspapers of the Funke media group. “The risks of nuclear power are ultimately unmanageable.”
After a word of power from Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD), the red-green-yellow federal government decided last year that the three remaining nuclear power plants should continue to operate until April 15, after the end of operation that was actually planned for the end of the year. After that, the use of nuclear power should be over in Germany. The deputy chairman of the FDP parliamentary group in the Bundestag, Lukas Köhler, had recently warned against a rapid dismantling of the three nuclear power plants. The Union wants to keep them at least operational.
