Nuclear power is the most unpopular source of energy in Europe, according to a new opinion poll conducted by the European Union. Only 20% of European citizens said they were in favour of nuclear energy, compared to 80% who favoured solar energy and 71% who favoured wind energy. Even coal, oil and gas were preferred to nuclear power.
