Energy safety takes precedence over environmental safety?

Now that there’s much less fuel coming from Russia even Germany’s Greens need to improve coal manufacturing, which was being phased out, to generate electrical energy, Lidové noviny notes:

“Security comes earlier than ecology, but additionally earlier than logic. If Germany had not shut down its nuclear power plants, it could not should burn a lot coal, which pollutes the setting. But there’s a drawback: the concern of a nuclear accident is bigger amongst inexperienced activists than that of worldwide warming. … Admittedly, to make placing the nuclear vegetation into operation worthwhile they must be saved operating for a number of years, and never only for a brief interval. The Greens do not need to swallow this bitter capsule as a result of it might come again to hang-out them within the subsequent elections. But it could be higher for nature – and for Germany’s vitality independence from Russia.”
