The German parliament approved delaying the shutdown of nuclear plants until April 15, 2023[1]. The plants will run out of fuel around that time, so extending their life beyond April seems untenable.

@mndrix I mostly agree... I'm just puzzled because that information has been available for a while, and Metaculus hasn't moved much.

is predicting YES at 50%

@Chocobo I still think there is a chance that the energy situation will deteriorate sufficiently for the government to consider another extension.

Two of the three remaining German nuclear power plants are to be in reserve to supply electricity until next spring.

"New fuel assemblies will not be loaded and mid-April 2023 is also the end for the reserve"
