The article reports that Europe's anti-nuclear environment ministers have reacted to increasingly pro-nuclear statements from European commissioners by restating their concerns over nuclear's role. Six environment ministers from Austria, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Latvia and Norway, signed the communique. The environment ministers' statement said energy efficiency, renewables and a reduction in deforestation were more sustainable responses to climate change, and nuclear power was "not compatible" with sustainable development.
