German Panic Button: Political Leader Calls For Abandonment of Green Energy Transition
The deputy leader of the parliamentary Christian Democratic Party (CDU), Arnold Vaatz, has called for a U-turn regarding Germany’s planned nuclear phase-out and for a complete revision of nuclear policy. On Tuesday evening, Vaatz questioned the Government’s entire green energy transition. Vaatz justified his push by pointing out the fact that renewable energy sources are incapable of generating base-load electricity. Therefore the “immediate repeal of the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG)” was required, albeit while protecting legitimate expectations. “We will have to keep coal, gas and nuclear energy,” he said.
