This is a recipe for disaster. At a time when our climate is threatened by retained gasses from combustion of hydrocarbon fuels to take the highest existing output means of producing power off the table is foolish and short sighted. Opponents of modern nuclear power are using outdated arguments against it such as the suggestion that other sources can come close. already coal production has nearly doubled to take up the slack. All of the reactors that have failed  in history have done so either viaignorance of predictable projected issues Like evidence iof past tsunami in Japan, design flaws, or human  error (Chernobyl). Nuclear plants offer the most viable means of low pollution power. The average lifetime pollution per person with fossil fuel is measured in tons About 2 lbs for nuclear. 2 lbs of depleted uranium is smaller than a golf ball

Nuclear power can never be safe. Think what happened in Japan? tsunami and earthquake caused the nuclear leak...even after so much precautions.

Let me put it this way. I'd feel perfectly comfortable living next door to a well built nuclear power plant if it meant cheap energy without destroying so many natural resources.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

I agree that nuclear power will not be safe until we know how to dispose of the waste safely or build power plants in safe locations.

i think it is unsafe .just like the example of Japan.

Wow if you think it is....crawl back to your deserted island.

 

Energy is harnessed raw power. Radiation, fire , electricity all kill. So do their waste products. But I like heat in the winter & MTV.

 

 

 

It is relatively safe.  Environmentally, it is one of the best things for the planet, if handled properly.    It's essentially an emissions free, source of energy.  France get 88% of it's power from nuclear.
