In view of the energy crisis, Hamburg’s CDU leader Christoph Ploß has called for nuclear power to be expanded in Germany. “Not only do we have to replace Russian gas as quickly as possible, we also need significantly more electricity in the future to make the economy, mobility and heating of our buildings climate-neutral,” said the member of the Bundestag to the newspapers of the Funke media group (Tuesday).

Since the amount of electricity required for this cannot be covered by renewable energies in the foreseeable future, he advocates the expansion of nuclear power.
Ultimately, there are only two realistic options: coal or nuclear power, said Ploß. “Anyone who takes climate protection seriously cannot avoid nuclear power.” It cannot be that the Greens want to continue to rely on coal as a climate killer for ideological reasons.
