Nuclear power plants use nuclear fission to generate energy, generating radioactive waste products that, in view of the health risk they pose, require permanent, safe storage. To date, no repository has been set up worldwide to meet this requirement. Nevertheless, hundreds of nuclear power plants are in operation. The risk of a meltdown has also been underestimated for a long time and most recently, in the disaster in Fukushima, Japan, it was made clear in a terrifying way. Ultimately, this also led to the decision to phase out nuclear energy in Germany. However, eight reactor blocks are still in operation in Germany. It is scheduled to be switched off by 2022 at the latest. (fp)
