Tesla CEO Elon Musk has urged Europe to increase its use of nuclear power in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Comments come after Russia attacked the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine last week. Comments assume significance as Europe is heavily dependent on Russian gas for their energy needs. Tesla shares closed 0.1% lower in Friday’s regular trading session at $838.29, but rose almost 0.7% in the after-hours session to $844.07. Musk said nuclear power is better for global warming rather than burning hydrocarbons for energy, adding that the risk of radiation is much lower than most people believe. The Tesla CEO said some people’mistakenly’ believe that nuclear energy poses radiation risks. . . .
