German Nuclear Update

With the chances of the Green Party joining a coalition government dead, the possibility of a nuclear energy revival in Germany is still in the offing:

German opposition leader Angela Merkel said differences with the Greens are too great to schedule a further round of talks on forming a government, signaling that she's leaning toward a "grand coalition" with Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder's Social Democrats...

One key area of dispute between the parties concerns CDU and FDP plans to extend the life of nuclear-power plants to reduce energy costs for consumers and industry. In 2000, the Greens secured an accord with Germany's utilities to shut down the country's 19 nuclear plants over 21 years.
