    The banning of nuclear power is only temporary. When the German people discover the consequences of banning nuclear power, they will change their minds.

    For climate’s sake I sure hope you are right. Have you seen any objective projections of how much utility bills will increase if all nukes are shuttered?

      I haven’t seen projections, but I would expect the increase to be sufficient to cause consumers to object strongly.
