Strange no one's mentioned the safe, clean, cheap to set up, limitless sources of solar, wind, tidal, wave, and geothermal energy...

Fossil-fuel vs. nuclear is another false dichotomy the establishment has hypnotized us into seeing as the only available options. They're not.

Agreed! They can bring any "pro-nuclear power" argument as they want , as for example that it's cheap to produce.

The fact is that we do NOT know what to do with this stuff (nuclear waste) and we cannot leave it alone. We have to babysit forever. So how can we keep on accumulating it? This when all goes as intended.. accidents not included. We do know that at times the baby fool the sitter.

How could we be in favor of producing this kind of energy when the circle it's not complete.

p.s. Something to laugh about (well not really) Here "Plume Exposure Pathway Emergency Planning Zone," is at 10 miles.. why? Why they could not say 30 miles? Because after 10 miles there are cities.

It's well over two years now (old news) that US have urged Americans within 50 miles to evacuate from Fukushima. So what's the actual safe distance for a fallout?

Reuters, damaged reactors seep radiation. Cannot be contained. As atomic isotopes decay, they spin off energized particles that can penetrate human organs and damage human cells, potentially causing cancer.

USNewswire “Plumes of radioactivity from Fukushima are migrating in the Pacific towards the U.S. West Coast.” -Dr. Helen Caldicott

20 Miles radius from Fukushima not habitable for the next 20,000 years.

"Nuclear power energy cheap to produce.. at the moment"

Life is simple; we are what we eat and what we read. Talk is superfluous.

More solar less or even better. No Fossil or Nuclear. Lets quit hurting Mother Earth.

I'm not necessarily virulently anti-nuke but...if they took all the money government spent on nukes, big oil/coal subsidies, pollution clean up and military hardware and spent it instead on solar energy

- it would be cleaner
- the world would be a safer place
- solar energy unit cost would drop dramatically and become more economically viable vs fossil fuels

According to my local solar guy it currently costs about $10,000 to set up a system that generates 1000 watts/day....

well maybe one day....
