"the Conservatives, Your ideology stands in the way of a more effective climate change policy"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. More and more now realize that nuclear power needs to be part of the solution if we are serious about addressing the climate threat, but the Greens and their top candidate in the EU elections Alice Bah Kuhnke refuse to accept this. Instead, she and the green Party become faktaförnekare who let their ideological kärnkraftsmotstånd stand in the way of a more effective climate change policy.nnAllt suggest that it is not enough to curb global warming to two degrees, but instead we must really keep it under 1.5 degrees.nnDet requires a more aggressive climate policy of developed trading system, increased aid for climate measures and to continue to increase the share of renewable energy. But we also need more nuclear power. "
"Europe has a particular responsibility to show the rest of the world that it is possible to combine economic growth with reduced emissions. Neither Sweden nor Europe can tackle climate change on its own. The EU accounts for less than ten per cent of the world's total carbon dioxide emissions. China releases on your own out more carbon dioxide than the EU and the US together. "
"Europe's role in the global climate policy is, therefore, to convince countries such as China, India and the united states to take responsibility. We can do this by showing that the reduction of emissions and high growth can go hand in hand. Europe should be setting an example."
"It requires that we take the facts from the UN's intergovernmental panel on climate change. In all the calculations in their main scenarios identified renewable energy and nuclear power out as essential sources of energy for us to be able to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees."
"today, around 40 per cent of electricity production in the EU from the combustion of fossil fuels, like dirty coal or natural gas. Coal power must therefore be phased out and replaced by carbon-free sources of energy."
"Shall we make up with our dependence on fossil energy sources, we can not ignore one of the most important tools: nuclear power. Especially not when the energy consumption globally is expected to increase by 50 percent over the next 30 years. "
"just relying on renewable energy is simply not enough. Nuclear power and renewable, must complement each other. It is against this background that the Green party kärnkraftsmotstånd is so difficult to understand. "
"There are important questions which need to be resolved related to nuclear energy, as a sustainable disposal and new nuclear power plants that are built must be secure. But nuclear power has a big advantage. It can deliver carbon-free electricity around the clock, every day of the year and is not dependent on weather or wind."
"Germany's snabbavveckling of nuclear power should also serve as a cautionary example of how mere symbolic policies, in practice, lead to increased emissions. Which is now replaced nuclear energy by coal and Russian gas. "
"But the green Party has become climate policy faktaförnekare. Together with the Centre party is pushing a policy that dogmatic turn a blind eye to nuclear energy is a crucial piece of the puzzle to save the climate. Not even when the UN intergovernmental panel on climate change indicates that nuclear power is needed, they are prepared to change their view."
"the Conservatives will instead stand up for a climate policy that makes a real difference."
"Our policy delivers the serious response to how Europe can combine growth with the reduction of emissions and thus be a model that the rest of the world want to take after. "
"That is why we are pushing for the EU to double the funding to nuclear power and to invest in research and security, and make it possible to export more climate-resilient electricity in Europe. "
"the Choice is thus between a modern climate policy, which invests in both renewable and nuclear power, and those who lack a serious plan to tackle the climate problem."
