For what it's worth, my guess is that no new nuclear power station will be commissioned in western Europe. From what you say, Italy may be the exception, but I doubt even this.


By italy i'm not sure but we will know more in June about that after the public opinion poll.
The exception will be France with more then 50 nuclear plants i don't think they care about one or two more.

Because they are afraid of a nuke accident obviously. If you aren't willing to accept the risks of your particular location, if you BELIEVE your own press, you MOVE. If you do not, you stick around and take your chances.


Yes, and I suspect many of the people living near Fukishima may have worked in the nuclear industry all their lives, doing very nicely thank-you. And many might even have worked father and boy. It's certainly the case in the UK that the workforce surrounding most nuclear installations (i.e. the majority of the population surrounding the facility) DON'T want the facility closed down, thank you very much; given a vote they'd want it expanded and open forever. If they can put up with Sellafield (aka Windscale), site of one major accident in the past, they can put up with anything.

As for Fukishima: well, it occurs to me that once they've nicely buttoned up the wrecked reactors in concrete, they'll have an excellent seawall protection for new build of improved reactors.

"May have a role to play" is a bit dubious. All the people who put "yes" might, for all we know, be resigned to the government choosing nuclear as part of the energy mix, rather than be wanting it.

Also it is becoming more and more the case that, without seeing the original questions and their rubric, it is difficult to interpret results because "leading" questions or combos of questions can't be identified (at least this one takes the trouble to repeat the questions verbatim, mind).

As to the OP's survey, I jalouse it's not written in his mother tongue (so some of the words have "associations" in our culture of which he might be completely unaware, and some make no sense at all unless you speak one of the Romance languages) and he makes the basic mistake of asking the "category" qs (age, sex social-status...) first.

I could go on...

No doubt at all that nuclear will have a role to play in our overall energy mix in the future. They are not going to be all closed down by tea time tomorrow...and that's still several hours in the future. Daft question.

The work is not only based on the communities but also on the politics in the European Union. And here only Germany and France are really against nuclear power. Italy for example is just getting back in nuclear power.


The "politics of the EU" is soon going to change rather radically. The eurozone either has to break apart or become much closer together. I personally suspect that the political differences will dictate it is the former rather than the latter. It's not just nuclear power the different european nations can't agree about - it's lots of other things too, and some of them are critically important.
