Open letter to include Nuclear Energy in the Green Deal

Dear Sirs,

On behalf of 100TWh, a civil society organization representing Belgian citizens, we would like to congratulate you for insisting at the December European Council meeting that nuclear be included among the energy choices for combating climate change under the European Green Deal. We firmly believe that nuclear has to be part of the solution for both the climate and energy supply security, and that you were right to reject the unscientific and politically-motivated opposition.

You have our full support.

We were delighted to see that your position in the Council was also backed by France, the UK, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria and Slovenia.

Our organization is campaigning for the continuation of nuclear power generation in Belgium because we are convinced that a nuclear phase out would be the wrong decision.
