“The winner is Gabriel”


The new bill on the responsibility for the disposal of nuclear waste, passed by the German Bundestag on Thursday, is a “step of historic proportions” for the federal government, writes lawyer and expert in energy law Olaf Däuper in a guest commentary in Handelsblatt. It was a compromise where the state and the nuclear suppliers made a big step towards each other and “contributed to restoring peace in the deep divides between the nuclear-sceptic civil society and the atomic corporations”, writes Däuper.
