Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Could not have happened at a better time. Vattenfall is running a big campaign right now on nuclear power.

As you mentioned the differing regional connections between the parties and energy interests, I'll point to the programme the SPD has in Hessen, which is pretty damn good. Could have been taken directly from the greens. Read the PDF here.

Fascinating. I am sure they would have run it even if we hadn't changed to a more pro-nuke government in Sweden. And the German nukes were bought during a soc dem government.

The government forces Vattenfall to close reactors in Sweden, then sends the very same stateowned company shopping for German nukes.

Politics are just awful.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
