The Merkel – Steinmeier TV “duell”

I just finished watching this important TV duell between the German chancelor Angela Merkel and the socialist party candidate (and current minister) Frank-Walter Steinmeier (elections will be in two weeks). Just to mention that there was in 90 minutes not a single mention of “climate”,  “climate change” or “global warming”; just a couple of months ago,  you could not find any political statement in Germany without these words. Is the tide on AGW really turning?
The most remarkable difference between the 2 candidates is that Steinmeier still wants to stop all nuclear power facilities, and that Merkel sees nuclear power as a solution bridging the time before renewables will be economic on their own.
