With about 3% of its economy put out of action, I expect there is a certain decrease in emissions, sure. And substituting fossil fuels as a temporary (and expensive) stopgap for the lost nuclear power will certainly hit hard. But what exactly is the news here??

I suppose any decrease in emissions is good news.
