ABSTRACT
This article examines how Germans, who once opposed to the use of nuclear energy, are increasingly showing support for it as their economic situation worsens. While the German Parliament passed a law that would decommission all of the country's reactors by 2021, it appears that public debates over nuclear power will be reopened. Also discussed is growing support of nuclear energy in other European countries.
