Perestroika 2.0

"Germany signalled on Wednesday [May 11, 2011] that it could close the last of its 17 nuclear power plants in a decade, when a government commission said replacement wind farms and natural gas plants could be built by 2021.

A draft of a report by the so-called Ethics Commission said a step-by-step phase out was possible over ten years at the most, starting with the closure of seven plants idled by the government and an eighth currently under repair."
