[Machine Translation] On the road to ecological transition? An energy expert decrypts the president’s words on nuclear power. Fessenheim, the oldest French nuclear power station still in operation, will close its doors in a few months at the end of a soap opera as political as ecological. If other closures should happen by 2029, for Emmanuel Macron it is neither a priority nor even necessarily a direction to take. He would rather bet on the end of fossil fuels, as he announced in an interview on France 2 last December. But then, in the face of the climate emergency, what do the president’s words tell us about his vision of the environment and the ecological transition? Decryption with Mycle Schneider, world nuclear expert.
