EU: Nuclear energy must be called totally green
  • In Europe, voices are louder and louder in defense of nuclear power plants, which have become fashionable to close in the past decade.

    Group of 46 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from 18 countries wrote a letter to the President of the European Commission, Ursula Gertrud von der Leyen, calling for nuclear energy to be included in the EU's list of green investment categories. Eliminating nuclear power, they said, would help implement a strategy that is “clearly inadequate” for decarbonizing the region's economy.

    The letter argues that, to please several Member States, the Commission is making decisions that interfere with the normal development of nuclear power. Among other things, this leads to false media coverage of the harm of nuclear energy to human health. There are scientifically proven justifications for the safety of nuclear power at all stages of production for the environment and human health. False claims in the media not only interfere with this type of energy generation, but also threaten the entire decarbonization program of Europe.

    Nice thing.
