It is true that the elections for the European Parliament of next May 25th are special. Because the juncture the European Union is going through is special and also the response to the crisis that marked the last five years is special. Do we have to maintain an exceptional policy –austerity and budgetary stability– that allowed the survival of the euro and the stabilization and consolidation of the European Union? Do we have to strength and legalize –we can say, return to normality– this exceptional policy?

Prensa Germany’s Grand Coalition: SPD and the Lessons of the Past

More than four months have elapsed since CDU/CSU and SPD formed a coalition in Germany. This time, the aim was to avoid the errors made by both parties in the previous coalition of 2005-2009, after Gerhard Schröder’s defeat and the election of Angela Merkel as Chancellor. The result of said coalition was not satisfactory to either party, but was especially harmful to SPD. The Social Democratic Party decreased by more than 11 points in the following 2009 election and CDU/CSU had to form a coalition with the Liberals to continue in office.

La energía es un factor estratégico y de competitividad para cualquier sociedad y, por sus implicaciones económicas y sociales, precisa de un marco regulatorio adecuado y de una responsabilidad política por parte del Gobierno. La decisión de cerrar la central nuclear de Garoña ha puesto de manifiesto tanto la falta de una política energética en España como la incapacidad del actual Gobierno para tomar decisiones en beneficio del interés general. El XVIII Observatorio Económico de FAES, celebrado el 20 de julio de 2009, reunió a Manuel Pizarro, Juan Velarde, Honorato López Isla, Pedro Rivero y Roberto Centeno para analizar la situación energética en España. Se defendió el uso de la energía nuclear y se reclamó una política responsable a largo plazo que, como elementos clave, busque garantizar la seguridad del suministro, la competitividad y la sostenibilidad.

La energía de fisión nuclear garantiza el abastecimiento energético, es barata en términos relativos, es operativamente segura, se ha demostrado inocua para la salud y se revela ventajosa en términos medioambientales al no generar emisiones de CO2 u otros gases de efecto invernadero. El progreso técnico reporta ya soluciones satisfactorias para los residuos, si bien es necesario seguir reforzando la investigación en este terreno. La elevada dependencia energética española y los compromisos de Kyoto refuerzan sus ventajas para España.
