Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project deals with and describes the problem concerning nuclear energy in Denmark. As a starting point, the project's relevance is legitimized by the widespread recognition of the global problem concerning CO2 emissions. This problem has, however, paved the way for a rethinking of our current energy model. If we want to achieve the goal of avoiding any irreversible climate changes, we will have to reconsider the question of nuclear energy. In this context, the report seeks to uncover the issues and attitudes behind the Danish nuclear opt-out. The purpose of this report is to gain insight into why a big part of the Danish population is against nuclear energy. From this perspective, the report aims to illustrate any concerns connected to the subject, but also to uncover the different expert interpretations of the subject. Furthermore, the report will apply Ulrich Beck's theory about the risk society and use it as an analytical frame for uncovering the concerns of the broad population. The project bears the imprint of a qualitative and quantitative approach as the different polls and the prepared interviews constitute a significant value in the project. Finally, the project concludes that the implementation of nuclear energy in Denmark in the near future is highly unlikely due to the widespread resistance towards nuclear energy.
