'Germany, Switzerland and Italy are all abandoning nuclear in favor of clean and safe renewable energy that don't threaten our homes and communities with meltdowns and radioactive fallout. People from Vermont to California are coming together to demand the same change here at home, and it's Obama and Congress that have the power to answer their call by shutting down nuclear here at home and investing in renewables like wind and solar'.

France to invest euro1 billion in nuclear energy

President Nicolas Sarkozy says France will invest euro1 billion ($1.4 billion) in nuclear energy despite a rise in concern about atomic safety following Japan's nuclear disaster.

Sarkozy says a moratorium on new nuclear reactors, as some countries have declared since the Fukushima Dai-ichi accident, "makes no sense."

He said Monday, "there is no alternative to nuclear energy today."

He may have said "there is no alternative to nuclear energy today" but in the same announcement that spoke of euro 1 billion in nuke investment, euro 1.5 billion in renewables was also made. That rather looks as though they know there is an alternative!
