Dr. Raphael Heffron quoted in article by leading international current affairs magazine 'Foreign Policy'

18 February 2015 |

In an article entitled "British Plans for Nuclear Power Spark European Fight", Dr. Raphael Heffron was interviewed by the leading international current affairs magazine 'Foreign Policy'.

Amongst several quotes by Dr Heffron in the article, the conclusion reads:

'Austria’s frontal challenge, Heffron said, could actually encourage the EU to double down on it its green dreams even at the expense of market liberalization. That would further complicate Brussels’ plans to craft a one-size-fits-all energy policy that meets three disparate goals.

“It could end up with Europe saying, hang on a second, the environment and climate change and energy security concerns are actually as important, and potentially more important, than the economic arguments,” he said.'
