Possibly, if such other countries have certain things to make if feasible for them:

  • The wealth to avail themselves of other energy production options.
  • The technical prowes to do the same.
  • The territorial imperitive that risks a major population disruption threatening the entire country and its population. 

In the latter regard, Germany's viewpoint is not so much a matter of enlightenment as it is a matter of stability and survival...considering that the entire German nation could fit into a region no large that the east portion of a US state like, say, Texas. Considering Chernoval, would such a catastrophe in Germany leave anyone untouched? So the cost of the unthinkable is more than unthinkable there.
