Germany Pulls the Plug on Nuclear Power

Hosted by

Last year, the center-right coalition of Chancellor Angela Merkel pushed an unpopular plan to extend the life of nuclear power. Now, Merkel wants Germany to abandon nuclear power in the next 11 years. Her plan comes after Japan's nuclear crisis at Fukushima and after a regional election, which became a referendum on energy policy.  But it's a policy that may be easier to propose than to accomplish.
