Germany's Nuclear Phase-out Isn't New - It's Been Planned For Decades

An anonymous reader writes "Princeton's Alexander Glaser examines the long-planned nuclear phase-out in Germany and points out that it really didn't start with concern over the Fukushima accident in Japan. Several events mark the beginning of Germany's nuclear phase-out, among them the huge protests over the Brokdorf reactor, which began in 1976 and led to civil war-like confrontations with police, and the controversy over the Kalkar fast-neutron reactor in the mid-1970s. Because of these and subsequent developments—including the 1986 Chernobyl accident—by the 1990s, no one in German political life seriously entertained the idea of new reactor construction."
