The nuclear accident in Japan and all that trash floating on the ocean from the quake. Then of course there is the radioactive water running into the ocean from the nuclear plant. The list goes on and on and on.......Nuclear energy --no thank you!

I believe oil well fires like those in Iraq are worse. It burned so much oil in a short time thast the weight gone in fire was too enormous it cause shifting of the earths axis. If you don't believe this try lifting a barrel of oil and see how heavy it is yet were looking at millions or billions of barrels gone which is in my estimation is a lot of weight.
