The whole "Look as this accident" argument doesnt really hold water at all...That's like saying we should never move forward because of what could happen. By that logic you should be completely opposed to cars...look at the deaths that causes...whoa. I bet you walk and bike everywhere right? Oh no? hmmm, odd.

 

Outside of chernobyl (shotty design mixed with human error) and a plant built where it could get hit by a hurricane (human error, again) I don't see a problem. 

 

As has been stated, France has been doing this for a while, and they aren't melting down every ten years causing mass casualties, they are just fine actually.

 

As far as the plants getting water? Well...we have the technology to get water to them. That's not really an issue. And even if we couldnt pipe the water to it, if a few powerplants were placed in low risk areas near lakes and rives and lakes...they could power  most of the country.

 

 


And that's what I'm getting at, Nuclear power is not safe. If something happens at a plant there are serious things to worry about. Where solar/wind energy is concerned if something happens, nothing happens. We already have some nuclear power plant failures throughout history, how many more accidents will it take for you to get it thru that thick skull that nuclear energy is not safe. Nuclear power will never be the answer to world's energy problems, if it were the answer then every country in the world would be building nuclear power plants right now.

I think solar wind is safer /solar energy is  safer than some  Nc plant.   When  Ncp  go  dwn evey thing  go down almost.

Look at what's happening in Japan at the moment.


It only emits steam (water). That is it. No radiation unless a natural disaster occurrs (by the by, most of the newer generation plants can take a good earthquake).

The argument about needing water is also faulty. We pump water to many of our plants. Just look at this map of nuclear plants and tons are not anywhere near a water source. And to just throw a bone to the other side, this one has the radiation levels if a meltdown occurred. Still, they never happen.

Solar energy is inefficient and also makes tons of waste per panel. Nuclear plants make little to no waste and it can be reused to make more energy. Then, the waste will eventually break down in a few hundred years. It is perfectly safe and few meltdowns have actually occurred. most of them being outdated technology.
