Nuclear Energy and Climate Change
A Consideration of the Risks

Felix Christian Matthes

Deutsche Fassung


The debate over climate change has made nuclear energy socially acceptable again. However, the uses of nuclear energy do not offset the risks connected with it. Other alternative energy sources and greater energy efficiency can also reduce CO2 emissions. It is therefore possible to stop global warming and abandon nuclear energy.
