Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Checking further, I found two different things.

On one hand, there really was an SPD politician who made that claim, but it was current party chairman Kurt Beck.

On the other hand, I find that the below referenced Öko-Institut numbers come from a study asked for by Gabriel's ministerium (the full study is here (pdf!)), which looked separately at CO2 per 1 kW electricity production and combined 2kW heat and 1kW electricity production. Only the latter comparison shows only block heating gas as better than German nuclear+oil heating, so I think Gabriel shouldn1t be the person arguing for coal beating nuclear.
