Nuclear Power is the future, it is our only choice really.

Coal puts too much carbon in the air, it increases green house gases, it's shockingly filthy. Nuclear power is much cleaner. We have many wind turbines here in Califonia, but they are only a drop in the bucket. Nuclear power can create hydrogen also for powering cars in the furure. The US has not built a nuclear power plant in over twenty years. We need to begin building soon. This also would prevent the mid-east from using their oil in a threating way, possibly getting them to be more resourceful in ways other than oil. Solar energy only works in sunny climates and only when the weather permits, plus it is just not enough. Hydro power is great, but only so many rivers around. This will help stop global warming, dependency on oil and is inexpensive. There is a book called "The Case for Nuclear Power", his predictions are very true. "Naturally Dangerous" is another book. There is no free lunch, over zealous environmentalists have preventing us from using nuclear power... a shame and a sham really.

Yup Nuclear fuel is the future fuel of the world. That way global warming can be stopped too and also more electricity will be generated and will be available for more time to many people with very less power failure.

yes but here in the US they are afraid if it. since 1978 i believe they stopped building becaue of one incident that did not harm anybody!!! it just scared everyone. The one in Russia of course killed many people. i forget the name... Chernobal, yes it was terrible accident.

Yep. Hydroelectricity is good, like in the Three Gorges Dam in China, where when it is finished would provide China with 10% of clean energy. Nuclear Power is a great way to go, and other than the nuclear waste, its all good :)

iagree, but hydro power is bad when you take away homes from people to build that big dam in china. not sure its okay if it is too big.
