What's happening now

COP26 make a plan.tiff
The 26th Conference of the Parties to the Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP26)  met in Glasgow, Scotland,  November 1-13, to strengthen World Leaders' commitment to the combat against climate change. See our blog for commentary.

A group of 50 young nuclear professionals performed an amazing song and dance in Glasgow to convey the message that Net Zero Needs Nuclear.

Standing Up for Nuclear in Berlin
 
An international rally for nuclear power took place in Berlin on Saturday 13 November.
Organisers included FOTA4Climate, Nuklearia,  Mothers for Nuclear, Africa4Nuclear, Les Voix du Nucléaire and Generation Atomic.

James Hansen spoke, regretting that Germany is trying to have gas treated as a clean energy although its total greenhouse effect is almost as bad as that of coal, but even the texts in schools demonise nuclear power.

But a change is in the air. A recent poll showed that “56% of Germans are pro-nuclear, only 34% against,” noted pro-nuclear activist Björn Peters.

And cheer up: the Melty Bears slew the fossil dinosaurs!

In 2011 Germany had 17 nuclear reactors, supplying 1/4 of the country’s electricity. Today, 6 remain, all  scheduled to be shut down by the end of 2022. (By contrast, coal-fired plants will operate until 2038).

Climate activists say that the nuclear plants provide safe, dependable electricity and save 70 million tons of CO2 a year. They plan regular demonstrations in front of the remaining plants, hoping to persuade policy makers to keep them running.

We Europeans need nuclear power!

Ten European countries have launched a plea in favor of nuclear power, arguing that nuclear energy must be included in the "green taxonomy" drawn up by the European Commission.

The IPCC is clear: our objective of limiting our warming to 1.5° or 2°C in the 21st century can only be achieved if we drastically reduce our greenhouse gas emissions in the next eight years.

The statement was signed by France, Romania, the Czech Republic, Finland, Slovakia, Croatia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Poland and Hungary.  Source

Dear Germany, please keep your nuclear reactors online
 
Germany is in danger of missing its 2030 climate target, despite all its efforts. Exiting nuclear power will only increase its carbon emissions further. This must be prevented. - from an Open Letter from leading environmentalists to all Germans,
published in Die Welt.
