  But surprisingly, opposition to nuclear power is rooted in a philosophy demonizing consumption as the underlying source of humankind's troubles. In his book An Essay on the Principle of Population, philosopher Thomas Malthus argued humans had a propensity to utilize abundance for population growth, rather than for maintaining a high. There are operable nuclear power reactors in the EU. Some reactors are being decommissioned, others are having their working lives extended, and several new units are planned or under construction. In addition to power reactors, a full range of fuel cycle plants (from enrichment to waste storage and recycling) are in operation in Europe. It is the responsibility of each EU.

Germany has measures on the books to close all of the country's nuclear reactors by Although a majority of people in Germany oppose nuclear power, there are conflicting views on just how to.   Nuclear power is a clean energy source that produces electricity without emitting any of the pollutants associated with fossil fuels, including greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane Author: Kristen Ferries.
