Here's more evidence that Sweden is reconsidering its nuclear phase-out:
A survey into attitudes to nuclear power conducted annually by the SOM Institute and published by Svenska Dagbladet shows that 50 percent of Swedes want to keep atomic energy in the long term. According to the report, 33 percent of people questioned wanted to keep using the country's ten remaining reactors or to extend their active life.For the results of another poll from last November, click here.
Some 17 percent of Swedes want nuclear power to be expanded in the future.
The survey represents a shift in attitudes. In 1999 a majority wanted to get rid of nuclear power. Now only one in three Swedes favours this. This puts opposition to nuclear power at its weakest since opinions on the issue were first polled.
