Nuclear is simply too dangerous with too many deadly waste materials. Why not use wind, solar, even the tidal flows to create energy? No bad waste materials with endless possibilities.

"Since the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan has been a staunch upholder of antinuclear sentiments. Its postwar Constitution forbids the establishment of offensive military forces, and in 1967 it adopted the Three Non-Nuclear Principles, ruling out the production, possession, or introduction of nuclear weapons."

It's a shame that something such as this should occur just over 60 years after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They have already sustained such a loss.Culturally, technologically, economically, and in other ways that we can't even imagine. Lives were lost that might have enriched the lives of people living today.
Nuclear power is dangerous. And absolutely no one is prepared to handle the repercussions of its improper usage. I don't care how many thick, lead walls are built...something gets through. Just like a soda bottle that somehow manages to retain the smell of the soda which once filled it (even after several rinses and Koolaid mixes). The molecules fuse and exchange places and something gets through...Little by little. And that something...Radiation is very dangerous. The concentration of radiation that seeps out at any particular time may be small. But over time, like Mercury, it starts to build up. And it is that buildup, which is actually more dangerous than the bi-product. You never see it when it's right there in your face. Or in your tissues.
I am all for alternative energy. Our children are going to inherit this planet. Are we so selfish that we want to leave them a polluted, irradiated wasteland. Wind and water are excellent places to start.

Despite misleading objections, clean power from wind and solar energy using existing technology, aided by a national 'smart grid,' can provide all energy needs at lower cost than nuclear plants, and without the risk of radioactive contamination of land and water. It is really a matter of whether investment decisions and government subsidies support obsolete or emerging methods for energy generation.

Frightening to consider with Chernobyl, Fukishimaya and the recent Virginia earthquake shutting down the Lake Anna reactors still to this day (almost 3 months later)!

Nuclear Power is great.... the waste is what we need to fear.
