mr. leveretts, it's position on the world. food market. as millions of people are threatened by hunger and new technologies and the future of flying, have long been the focal points of the berlin air show. when i'm at the war, ukraine priorities have shift and chris global. welcome to the program. certain industries and germany have to shut down. the economy minister says, should there not be enough russian gas come winter? russia has already cut supplies delivered through the baltic sea north stream pipeline, and could decide to keep the taps completely closed after scheduled maintenance work in july is over. meanwhile, a discussion is gaining momentum whether germany should extend the lifetime of its remaining nuclear power plants. fukushima 2011 an earthquake trigger it tsunami. it destroys a nuclear power plant. the accident shakes the world leading to fears the same
6:46 pm
could happen elsewhere. the accident also prompts germany to exit from nuclear power earlier than planned. is he guns, austin's as a proponent of the peaceful uses of nuclear energy? i want to be very frank. the events in japan of change my opinion on nuclear energy in that in 201117 nuclear power plants west still on the grit. now, only 3 remain active. they're supposed to close down by the end of the year, but the warn your crane and surging energy prices could affect the timeline. since russia's invasion of ukraine, the price of natural gas has jumped around 80 percent, many politicians and business lead us a calling for the nuclear plants, tory maine and operation. so energy supplies are secure in a north that was in an emergency situation. we have to physically secure our energy
6:47 pm
supply at any time and anywhere but the german chancellor made it clear that there won't be any changes to the nuclear shut down. currently and nuclear plants account for 6 percent of electricity in germany. the chancellor says, keeping these nuclear plants would have little effect. the survey, however, shows more than 60 percent of the population on favor of continuing the operation of nuclear plants due to the looming threat of an energy crisis. let's get more of us from clemens 1st. he is the president of the e 4 institute, one of germany's most renowned economic research institutions. welcome back to the program clemons. why would it be wise to keep germany's 3 remaining nuclear power plants in operation? we are facing an energy crisis, rising energy prices, that means we should use all options to stabilize supply or to increase supply.
6:48 pm
nuclear plants don't produce gas or they may help to keep her energy prices of tricity prices lower in the situation of high uncertainty. it's unwise not to use all options. now. changing the schedule for the nuclear plants is costly. uncomplicated, yes, but it's feasible. and i think we in the situation we should use options rather than giving away one without very good reasons. and let's address somebody's. somebody's issues here, i mean we heard the chancellor saying everything is geared towards phasing out nuclear power this year. retina comes to maintenance intervals when it comes to the fuel rods. so how can this be overhaul before the crisis, a lot of things were good in directions that have to change. now the question is really, is it feasible to change the schedule for shutting down the no kill the nuclear
6:49 pm
plants? love experts say yes, it is feasible, it is complicated, but of course, the longer we wait, the more complicated these things become. i think we should do what's necessary to make it possible to keep these plans open. i think that would be the wiser move, rather than saying just because we were on some calls, we don't change it. we're changing a lot of things at the moment. we need the flexibility and that we should apply that to look glance as everything else. i given the fact that amid this ukraine war longstanding, political positions in germany are practically changing overnight i, i see that argument. nevertheless, experts say that getting the necessary fuel elements could take between 12 to 18 months. that's wrong. as far as i know, i'm no engineer about the existing elements can be used to live longer and it's
6:50 pm
possible to procure new ones as well. so it's technically possible to continue running these plans. there are papers about that that to live at one, maybe not all 3 plans, but maybe it's just 2 of them. but them, it's possible to do this. the question is, do we have the political? well, we should remind ourselves, this is not about mentally changing the long term strategy. i personally think it would also be good to read. think the long term strategy about getting out of nuclear about here we are only talking about maybe a year or 2 or 3. so just changing the schedule, a little kind of 1st president of the institute. thank you for your time. thank you. germany, i love tons of says its canceling over 2000 additional flights at its frankfort and munich hobbs because of staff shortages. this comes on top of 900 connections already cancelled for july. the cancellation will chiefly affect german and you're
