Yes, the U.S. should move toward more nuclear plants because the environmental dangers of coal power stations have proven to be significant. Coal power stations pollute the environment and are likely to cause health problems for citizens of surrounding communities, as well as emitting radioactive activity that is 100 times more than nuclear power plants.
Yes, the United States should move away from coal power plants and toward nuclear power plants. The fact that coal power plants are more radioactive than nuclear power plants is a sign that these plants need to be changed to minimize the number of radioactive sites in this nation. Nuclear power is better for us than coal power.
No, even though coal power stations are 100 times more radioactive than nuclear power plants during normal operation, the U.S. should not move toward more nuclear plants. It is in my opinion that the United States should look to more environmentally friendly power sources like sun-power and wind-power instead of coal or nuclear power.
Even though coal power poses some risks, nuclear power plants pose other risks at the same time. If terrorists figure out how to attack one type of power, it's important to have other types of power available. To that end, we shouldn't put all of our eggs in one basket, when it comes to a national power supply.
