The Czech Republic bets heavily on nuclear


To the Huffington Post : ” Defying growing global skepticism over the use of atomic energy, (the Czech Republic) is planning to dramatically increase the country’s nuclear power production.

” (…) Other former Soviet bloc nations, now in the European Union, are following the Czechs’ lead on nuclear power – reflecting diverging economic needs between east and west. ”

” Slovakia is currently building more nuclear facilities. And Poland has engaged in talks with firms about know-how and technology for its first nuclear installation to be completed by 2030.

This is a sharp reminder that even if Germany and Switzerland are ditching the atom for renewable energy, many nations are planning or plan to build reactors in Europe and around the world.
