Atterwasch is a small village in Germany and is slated for demolition. It's a casualty of Germany's Energiewende, the most ambitious transformation of a country's energy sector ever attempted. Germany's plan to shut down all their nuclear reactors has had other unintended consequences as well, most notably increased burning of brown coal, the direct cause of Atterwasch's plight. Scholar Johan Norberg explores the Energiewende, along with other world energy issues like ethanol and fracking, both of which have also had consequences not anticipated.
