Fossil parties in retreat

Nuclear is rocking German politics. The 3 fossil (sorry mainstream) parties are scrambling. They got it wrong over the banking crisis. Now they are all at sea over nuclear which supplies 17% of UK electricity even before the programme for 11 more plants.
We have to call for a permanent moratorium over expansion. Public opinion will be on our side. The German Greens are leading on this and we have to raise the issue here more stridently.
Blending this into an alternative programme (Green New Deal) of energy, manufacturing & energy efficiency along with wealth redistribution will carve out a solid space for the Greens and get a lot of people listening.
