Absolutely NOT! Isn't what happened March 11 enough to convince you? Wind power, harnessing the tidal waves, have no harm to the environment if located accordingly. What's the matter with solar panels? And there is so much more that can be used to withdraw from oil that Nuclear Plants are NOT the OPTION to go. They're dirty unreliable in todays unpredictable state (earthquakes, volcanoes, pole shift,etc.) Actually we should be closing the plants we do have since this is a time of unstableness in our world. Anything could happen at anytime. Hope you get where I'm at on this.
