• Please stop using this terrible thing

    These things can cause mass destruction and cause global health problems! We can use wint turbines or Water generators powered by the flow of water down a stream or lake, etc. I think this also pollutes lots of things too like water perhaps. Anyway a we should just stop using nuclear power plants!

  • Chernobyl Fukushima what other supposedly plants wont melt down?

    What about terror attacks on the Plant it self its not worth the Radiation risks to the countries the inhabited area the Earth cant take any more radiation we are facing radiation in the Pacific ocean already and the area Chernobyl has radiated, We as people need to stop before it gets worse.

  • No nuclear energy

    We need to stopeu using nuclear energy. It is slowly destroying our geography, our rivers and our physical and mental health. If we continue we will have nothing but darkness left in this world. Is this really what you want. The only way that we can save our planet is by not using nuclear power plants!!

  • Stop this nonsense

    Japan has enough unused renewable sources of energy (small hydro, biomass, solar, geothermal, etc.) as well as an enormous potential for reducing electricity needs. Every building is so energy-INefficient as one can only imagine. The energy waste in Japan is gigantic. As long as all citizens remain uninformed and everybody keeps using air conditioners at full power there will be no solution. The producing industry, transport and trade must set and fullfill its targets, but people must also be forced to think differently. The technology is available, financing is not a problem. Nuclear power is just "simple and easy" and everybody can go back to business as usual. This is short-sighted and disastrous in the long run, just because nobody is committed to go out of the confort-zone. This is not to blame only on the politicians: what they do is their job, but citizens have also a huge respnsability, which they are not even aware of. What is most shameful is the complete apathy of the people. Some in the producing industry (which everybody usually blames) is trying to reduce the use of electrical power, but that is not enough. Do we have to wait until the next disaster to rethink the way we "do energy"?

  • Why have they not been stopped?

    Is everyone in the world that stupid? There is always going to be tornado, earthquake, tsunami that WILL make the reactors BLOW. Once they blow you CANT contain them and stop them.

    I dont believe in the end of the world as an apocalypse but I believe this could. Ridiculous

  • More waste! Honestly what are we doing to this planet!

    Just because we think we need more energy, why use something that produce extra waste that needs to be kept safe for over 100 years? Nuclear energy isn't clean, so don't think that it is. Currently, all that nuclear power is a waste of money and our tax dollars. Why not harness some more clean energy like the sun, wind and waves. All nuclear power is is dirty, dangerous and expensive!

  • Japan's China Syndrome !!!

    Do we really need to say anymore, really though. Hundreds of tons of gallons of radioactive waste dumped back into the ocean everyday since reactor number 3 melt down. There goes the Pacific Ocean and not to mention the fuel rods melting through Japans crust and right down to the earths' core. Does anybody even know what will happen when that approaches? Countless numbers of Japans population down with leukemia from thyroid destruction. But I hear their government is handling it quite well. They are telling their people not to worry that the radiation is not harmful and to smile, not to mention they will get shot if they try to get outside help . USA west coast is next and isn't interesting that our media isn't covering it. Maybe our government will tell the west coast to smile to and not to worry. WE HAVE TO GET THE WORD OUT TO STOP ALL NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS AND THEN ACCESS THE DAMAGE BECAUSE ALL OF THE POWER PLANTS ARE LEAKING AND ARE ON FAULT LINES. Accidents waiting to happen. Get the word out and tell congress what you know before it's to late. Please!!!

  • Nuclear Power, Look What They've Done

    Windscale, Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, now Fukushima. All detrimental, all deadly, all should be closed. When will people learn that nuclear power is not safe and should be banned? Japan, Germany and other countries are shutting down their plants because they know of the terror, but when will the rest of the world realize the danger of nuclear power? Also, what's more expensive? Some power, or human life.

  • Yes it should.

    Nuclear energy is the cleanest form of energy and is very inexpensive.There is less waste than any other form of fuel, it is very easy to transport as a new fuel and does not produce any harmful gases. If more health and safety regulations are put in place then this could be the future of the world.

  • It doesn't matter how often we have a nuclear disaster

    One time is too much! Twice is ridiculous! Third time are we trying to end humanity? Oclear accidents have left a scar on earth and left several cities uninhabitable for the remainder of our life times for certain..So I ask again are we trying to end life on earth as we know it do we not care about our children? Why are we continuing to build up nuclear waste that we have no reasonable means to protect or dispose of? Why are we creating problems our children will one day pay for .....

  • No, We Are Not Ready For That

    Maybe in time we can completely convert to using things like solar, hydroelectric, wind, geothermal, even hydrogen but that's not now. Nuclear power can be safe if it is used very carefully. Safety standards should vigorously monitored and enforced. The potential risks in terms of hurricanes and earthquakes and other potential disasters should also be considered and the plant secured firmly against a meltdown even in the worst case scenario.
    For now we should be making new nuclear power plants not dismantling the ones we already have. What anti-nuclear activists never consider is that when a nuclear plant isn't built typically they will build a coal plant. A nuclear plant is clean as long as there is never a meltdown. A coal plant is dirty no matter what and can lead to people getting diseases from its pollutants. It's simply unacceptable to expose innocent people to pollutants against their will. Coal should be banned, not nuclear.

  • Any power is harmful

    The amount of power that is used by humans is unatural. There is not a single method to make power that does not effect the enviornment. Nuclear power is the steadiest source of power that exist at this point. Until a method of creating power matches nuclear power that does not effect the enviornment as much, nuclear is our best bet

  • Nuclear power is an important part of the national electrical grid.

    It is not technically feasible to replace the electricity that nuclear power supplies with another source at this time. Solar power is expensive and is a very small percentage of the national power supply of electricity. Wind power shows more promise but cannot generate electricity on calm days. You need a steady supply of power, and nuclear power fills that demand right now.

  • Nuclear Power is Cleanest

    From what I've seen, nuclear power is our best bet for a power source. While it's dangerous, it is the most efficient. Over time we should stop using it, but only when other clean energy sources are sufficient for our planet's needs. Until then, let's use this tool we've got.

  • Aren't they all unsafe

    Fossil fuel is hard to get out and that is our main source of energy and its dangerous to get it. When we get we are hurting the environment why isn't anyone questioning them but no this one is way more danger and yes you might say we are using fossil fuel cause we have no alternative what happens when we run out of fossil fuel the what?? Instead of dismissing it lets try to figure out a way to make it safe and less hazardous to the world.

  • Any other alternatives?

    Unless you're going to try to argue with me on this with solar and wind energy as our savior for energy, you better think twice about dropping the use of nuclear energy. It's not as dangerous as some people advocate about it. I'm all for it, unless we can come up with more alternatives besides solar and wind energy.

  • We do need it

    Its 20 percent of the usa power its the safest energy in world hey man sup sj s sjs j jdwhn d che cn c ejhech c c chehceh v v v vv vv v vv v vv v v v v v v v v v v v vv

  • They can kill life and animals including people and we need animals and people to

    We need to stop power plats because , they can lead to disater and death and people and also poulit the airand people should not alow them because they can also kill what everybody loves mother nature and it life souce it the best thing that cna happen to the owrld

  • Risks versus Rewards; Nuclear Power Benefits

    The key argument for stopping nuclear power is because people have seen and heard about the disasters at Three-Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima. Many are afraid of nuclear meltdowns and the risks that come with nuclear power. There have only been around 12,000 people who have died of nuclear disasters. Around 33,000 people died of car accidents ALONE in 2012. So why have we not stopped driving cars? Not only so, but 4,000 people die of coal-generated power for every one person of nuclear power.
    Three-Mile Island nuclear meltdown was successfully contained because the safety measures were followed. Chernobyl happened because the crew did not follow the safety measure. Fukushima meltdown was due to the earthquake and the tsunami. The plan at Fukushima was designed to withstand earthquakes and tsunamis, but to have both hit at the same time was not what the plant was designed to hold against. Any other source of energy production wouldn't have been able to withstand those natural disasters either. In the U.S., the government has already spent money on hallowing out Yucca Mountain, which provides a safe storage for the nuclear waste.
    Nuclear power is needed as a main energy source. But just because we have nuclear energy doesn't mean we should stop other alternative sources of energy. We need every type of clean and renewable energy we can get to progress in this world.
