The German Energy Transformation – on the Path to a Safe Climate Without Nuclear and Fossil Fuels?

Synopsis:

Germany’s Energiewende (energy transformation) is one of the most ambitious energy policies of advanced countries these days. With a broad consensus of all major parties, the country has set out a path to leave nuclear energy behind by 2023 and significantly increase the production of renewable energies.

Hans-Josef Fell will take a look at Germany’s path towards those goals and also take the opportunity to discuss issues from his new book “Global Cooling – Strategies for Climate Protection”. The book represents an attempt to redefine climate protection measures and to readjust climate protection targets in line with what is scientifically necessary and economically feasible. The reader is provided with an overview of recent developments and failings in and successful instruments for fighting climate change and global warming.
