In the face of the energy crisis and global warming, nuclear energy has found a new lease of life. Germany, which was planning to phase out nuclear power, has decided to extend the life of its last three nuclear power plants. In Switzerland, the pressure is stronger than ever to keep the existing plants running, while in France, where 70% of the energy produced is nuclear, the government is being reinforced in its pro-atomic options. So, is nuclear power once again the energy of the future, a ‘green’ and decarbonised energy capable of ensuring a smooth transition to large-scale solar power? Or on the contrary, the risks of this form of energy, reminded by Chernobyl and Fukushima, make it necessary to give it up now and definitively, all the more urgently as Ukraine demonstrates the risks of a power plant such as Zaporijia, which has become a target of war? These are some of the questions that will be discussed during our debate.
