 SPD and Greens open: Do the nuclear power plants stay longer? In the debate about an extension of the run times of the three remaining nuclear power plants beyond the end provided for December 31, there is increasing movement within the traffic light coalition. The FDP has been making it clear for weeks that it advocates a runtime extension of the Meiler Neckarwestheim 2 in Baden-Württemberg, Emsland in Lower Saxony and Isar 2 in Bavaria.
