German Parliament Passes a Package of Laws to End Nuclear Power Era in Germany by 2022

The German Spiegel Online News writes in A Revolution for Renewables: Germany Approves End to the Nuclear Era that:
"Germany's federal parliament, the Bundestag, passed a historic package of laws Thursday that commits the nation -- once and for all -- to a phase-out of nuclear power by 2022."
Germany in previous years has already taken great strides in shifting to renewable energies and e.g. massively subsidizing modern heating and insulation installations, so the German move is not surprising as such.

It remains to be seen whether a highly industrialized Germany will be able to rely solely on alternative energies and to keep from buying nuclear power from other countries if energy shortfalls occur.

This is a sincere thank you to Rick Broida at PCWorld for his extremely useful posting on Pin Windows' Character Map (or Anything Else) to the Quick Launch Toolbar. I use the character map all the time so it was a real time-saver for me to read to do this pinning correctly.
