“Technology and democracy are growing apart”, says Robert Spaemann, a german philosopher. His opinions on nuclear energy are expressed in his book “After us, the nuclear meltdown”.

„On the one hand, we have the interests of society to house the permanent disposal site in the geologically most suitable soil, and on the other hand, are the people living at this location who may not want this but will nonetheless have to accept it against their will. The traditional European moral is enough to make the correct decision in these matters and needs neither new answers nor a new moral. It’s a question of balance. We simply need to use the intellectual tools that already exist.

Ortwin Renn is a professor of environmental and technology studies and he says:
“#Nuclearpowerplants belonging to the so-called third generation are safer than their predecessors, and it’s safe to assume that with these reactors, the accidents in Chernobyl or Fukushima would have been far less grave or would not even have occurred. (...)#nuclearenergy would seem to be indispensable, and acceptance is correspondingly high.”
