It’s what the vast majority of the German public wants, and now the government of Germany is responding.

Germany plans to shut down all its nuclear power plants by 2022. As Reuters reports, the government

said it planned to cut power use by 10 percent by 2020 and further expand the use of renewables such as wind and solar power.

Better to plan ahead and have a goal, than to have another disaster that leads to a full-on overthrow of the government. That’s bound to happen in the event of a sufficiently bad nuclear power plant disaster. Governments expanding nuclear power use have been warned.
