Climate change mitigation requires energy transition supported by public to maximize policy acceptance. We examine if transiency of residence and life satisfaction affect climate change perceptions and opinions on energy sources. We find that transiency of residence and life satisfaction have significant effect in shaping views towards climate change. Results indicate that individuals concerned about local impact of climate change are supportive of renewable energy sources.

Nuclear power's contribution to climate change mitigation is and will be very limited. Currently nuclear power avoids 2–3% of total global GHG emissions per year. According to current planning this value will decrease even further until 2040. A substantial expansion of nuclear power will not be possible. Given its low contribution, a complete phase-out of nuclear energy is feasible.
