In 2012 the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen banned the handling of nuclear fuels via the ports. By contrast, three companies affected by the ban had filed a complaint with the Bremen Administrative Court, which then turned the Federal Constitutional Court on. This now decided that the state of Bremen lacks the legislative competence to issue such a transshipment ban. According to Article 73 of the Basic Law, the federal government alone has the power to legislate for the peaceful use of nuclear power. The relevant paragraph of the Bremen Port Operations Act focuses on the peaceful use of nuclear power, so that the country is not called to legislate.

An alliance of 13 environmental and other organizations appeals to Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz to take action against the EU taxonomy planned by the EU Commission to finance sustainable technology. The Federal Government should vote against the proposal of the EU Commission in the EU Council of Ministers. If necessary, she would have to appeal against the taxonomy to the European Court of Justice, joining Austria and Luxembourg in the process. Organizations such as BUND, Greenpeace, WWF, the Naturschutzbund and Deutsche Umwelthilfe launched a corresponding appeal last week, which has now been signed almost 230,000 times.

The picture book launch of the James Webb space telescope on board an Ariane 5 saved so much fuel that the instrument should be operational for 20 years. The responsible engineers have determined that, as NASA has now announced. That would be twice as long as the planned operational readiness of 10 years that had been targeted. At the moment, the telescope cannot be refueled at its place of work – but it cannot be ruled out that this will be possible in the future.
