Why nuclear alone is not the answer to climate change?

Our intern Eleni Vlachopulosová explores, in her latest blog, the question of "Why nuclear alone is not the answer to climate change?".

Climate change is one of the most serious issues affecting the world today. Extreme weather conditions, such as drought, heat waves, flood and heavy rain are becoming more frequent not only on the other side of the world, but also in Europe. The planet is suffering from other consequences, like rising sea levels and loss of biodiversity. These are only some issues; the proverbial tip of the iceberg.

The EU came up with a rather ambitious plan to help slow down climate change. Its target is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 % by 2030. The long-term goal is to achieve a climate neutrality by 2050. This issue is one of the key tasks for the new commission and for Ursula von der Leyen herself.
