Poll: Finland’s support for nuclear power at all-time high

Support for nuclear energy in Finland is at an all-time high, according to a survey commissioned by the Finnish Energy Industry Association.

Sixty percent of the respondents were in favor of nuclear power, while 11 percent were against it.

Among the electorate of all parliamentary parties, there are clearly more supporters of nuclear energy than opponents.

According to the energy industry, awareness of the problem of climate change, rising prices for fossil fuels and the need to abandon energy cooperation with Russia have increased the popularity of nuclear energy.
