Coal and nuclear to manage energy crisis and a German state’s unwillingness to aid Ukraine

This week, our Beyond the Byline podcast focuses on several EU countries’ decisions to prolong using coal while others, like Germany, mull whether existing nuclear power plants should continue. So how does the European Commission plan to tackle the issue, and what is at stake for the Green Deal?

To hear more on this story, I spoke to  Aneta Zachova from EURACTIV Czechia, Niko Kurmayer from EURACTIV Germany, and our Environment and energy reporter Kira Taylor from Brussels.

We also discuss why a proposal that regional political parties provide financial aid to Ukraine was halted in Western Pomerania. I spoke with Julia Dahm from EURACTIV Germany to find out more.
