Scientifically, the cause is heard. The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre has demonstrated this in depth: nuclear power has no more impact on the environment or human health than other low-carbon energy sources already included in the Taxonomy of sustainable investments of the European Union in terms of moderation of global warming. It is even a better bidder on many criteria.
The issue of including nuclear in the EU’s Green Taxonomy has therefore taken a political turn, and the balance of power is changing.
On the one hand, the historic anti-nuclear bloc within the EU, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, and their contingent allies Denmark and Spain.
On the other hand, nuclear has lost a strong ally with the departure of the United Kingdom, but against a backdrop of raising the EU’s climate objectives and a growing energy crisis, active support for its inclusion is widening more and more.
