Env. min Hendricks against extending operational life of French nuclear plant
In a letter to her French counterpart Segolene Royal, German environment minister Barbara Hendricks opposed extending the French nuclear plant Cattenom's operational life, Germany’s Federal Government (Bundesregierung) said in a written answer to a parliamentary inquiry by the Green Party. According to the government statement, the plant near the German border is not safe against “seismic influences” - meaning it is not earthquake-proof.
