Greta Thunberg advocates keeping nuclear power plants open: ‘It is wrong to replace them with polluting coal-fired plants’ | Instagram news VTM

Replacing nuclear power plants with polluting coal-fired power plants? For Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, this is not a good idea. According to Thunberg, Germany would make a mistake by “stopping nuclear power plants to switch to coal”.

Betting on coal or lignite power plants is still, according to Thunberg, a “bad idea.” This is what she said in an interview with the German public broadcaster ARD.

Germany has been suffering from the country’s energy problem for some time. Originally, the ruling coalition of Social Democrats, Greens and Liberals wanted to shut down the last three nuclear power plants by the end of this year. However, under the influence of the energy crisis, Chancellor Olaf Schultz’s government decided to keep two of the three plants open until at least the spring of 2023. At the same time, it was decided to keep many coal-fired power plants open until the spring of 2024. Coal-fired power plants should disappear by 2030.

Schulz’s partner in the liberal coalition FDP argues in favor of keeping all three nuclear power plants open. Liberal Finance Minister Christian Lindner is happy with Thunberg’s ruling, he said on Twitter. In this crisis, everything that supplies electrical power to the grid must remain. The reasons speak for themselves, both economically and physically.”

The German opposition also welcomes Thunberg’s comments. Even if the patron saint of the Greens spoke in favor of expanding existing nuclear power plants, it is clear what kind of ideological error Robert Habeck. (Vice-Chancellor Green, Editor) And his party is over,” says Florian Hahn (CSU).
