Switzerland - Bern says yes to nuclear power plant

Phase-out and moratorium laws are falling in Europe (Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands and Italy) and US States (Minnesota and Kentucky) to name a few.

And now Switzerland

In a public referendum, the Swiss Canton of Bern has voted in favour of building a new nuclear power plant in Mühleberg to replace the old one there. This trend is evidence of the growing recognition of nuclear energy's role among currently available, demonstrated no/low emission energy generating technologies and Switzerland's commitment (with their Alpine-based hydro generating capacity) to a sustainable, green energy future consistent with the theme of the video linked below.
