The German Government’s decision to phase out nuclear plants & concentrate on renewables like wind power & solar power is exciting & enlightened. It does offer a small glimmer of hope that the planet can be saved. It is probably too late for the human race & most other mammals but it is never too late to do the right thing. Angela Merkel is an interesting person. From the old DDR & a conservative politician she has arrived at enlightened politics. We should all rejoice & be grateful & happy about this.
