US News FDP calls for quick order of new nuclear burns
"Give them a advice": traffic lights on Twitter
are battle that the political talk shows during the summer break are not stopped by heated discussions: On Monday evening, Ralf Stegner (SPD) and Marie Agnes Strack-Zimmermann (FDP), of all things, two members of the government coalition of an exchange of blows on the federal government's Ukraine policy-publicly visible to everyone on Twitter.
in the coalition dispute over the nuclear power period, the FDP has raised new demands, while the Greens reaffirm the adherence to the nuclear phase-out. FDP parliamentary group leader Christian Dürr told the "Spiegel": "We have to order new fuel rods in the next few weeks." A so -called stretching operation with old fuel rods is not sufficient, since the remaining nuclear power plant could not produce electricity under full load. The Green politician Katrin Göring-Eckardt emphasized on Friday: "It stays with the nuclear phase-out. This is how we agreed in the coalition."
Dürr confirmed his party's demand for a longer operation of the three nuclear power plant, which was still on the network. Since extension is not sufficient without new fuel rods, "we should agree on a term extension of the German nuclear power plants by spring 2024," said the FDP politician.
London approves the project of new nuclear power plant Sizewell C, of which EDF is partner

The British government announced Wednesday July 20222 Having received the Minister of Energy's "Development Authorization" for the project to build a new nuclear power plant, Sizewell C. EDF is the main partner of the project. It is part of the objective of reaching carbon neutrality in 2050.
Bundestag Vice President Göring-Eckardt spoke of a "sham debate". She told the portal "t-online.de": "Anyone who wants to discuss nuclear power is not interested in the question of how we become independent of the energy. But only to choke the green one in." Göring-Eckardt pointed out that "nuclear power doesn't bring that much". It is one percent gas and six percent electricity. This could also be obtained through savings.
The second stress test will show whether a "real emergency situation" is imminent for energy supply. "We then see how you have to help in an emergency," said Göring-Eckardt. "But it will certainly apply: no extension of the term, no new fuel rods."
With a view to the Bavarian nuclear power plant ISAR 2, the Greens politician also indicated a possible exception. "No new nuclear power plant will be put into operation and not all three previous ones will certainly run longer," she said. The discussion of whether Isar 2 had to run longer if necessary is "a Söder problem", Göring-Eckardt added with a view to the Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU).

Germany-France: Schäuble so that Germany finances French nuclear deterrence © Reuters/Axel Schmidt Schäuble so that Germany finances French nuclear deterrence Berlin ( Reuters) - Germany should contribute to the financing of the French nuclear arsenal in the face of the risk of conflict in Europe following the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, declares the former German Minister of Finance Wolfgang Schäuble in a Interview published on Saturday.
"Bavarian politics has led to not enough wind turbines were built and lines were laid. This is now revenge," said Göring-Eckardt. "Instead of simply calling for nuclear power", Söder has to do everything possible to save energy to ensure the supply.
CDU general secretary Mario Czaja said to the address of Göring-Eckardts, apparently it applies to the Greens: "First the party, then the country". However, the federal government "had the task of averting damage from the German people," wrote Czaja on Twitter. "That is why we need nuclear power to mitigate the energy crisis in winter," said the CDU politician.
A first stress test of the Federal Ministry of Economics for electricity supply in spring had shown that Germany's security of supply was guaranteed even under difficult conditions. A second exam is currently underway, the result of which is expected in the next few weeks. The three remaining nuclear power plants Isar 2, Neckarwestheim 2 (Baden-Württemberg) and Emsland (Lower Saxony) would have to leave the network at the end of December.
Linken-PartiVicee Lorenz Gösta Beutin called the discussion about the construction of the nuclear power company in the ZDF "Morgenmagazin" a "ghost debate". He criticized "that many are sensing the favor of the hour, going out of the nuclear phase -out and ultimately not only making extensions, but also enforcing a runtime extension". Beutin added: "We know that the FDP in the government puts massive pressure on the Union parties and that the nuclear lobby is also putting massive pressure."
