Switzerland Nuclear Energy Vote: Keep Reactors Humming
Monday, 28 November 2016 A Switzerland nuclear energy vote on Sunday calling for a quick shutdown of the country's five nuclear power plants failed, allowing the reactors to keep humming for more than 30 years.
The swiss have rejected the Green Party’s initiative to speed up the phasing out of the country’s nuclear power plants by 54.2% in a nationwide referendum.
Only six out of the country’s 26 Cantons in predominantly French-speaking areas came out in favour of the proposal.
