I mentioned my thoughts about nuclear power in my post earlier today. Forgive me for following up on that track.
Reading the latest news from Japan, I believe that energy from nuclear power is a safe energy source - as long as you don't build a power plant on a place that has a reputation for destructive earthquakes.
I remember Chernobyl. April 26 1986 ... that's just 25 years ago. The nuclear plant in Chernobyl, Ukraina was devestated by an explosion and a meltdown. Even though we live thousands of kilometers away, we suffered from the impacts of that accident ..... A nuclear meltdown is a dissaster - not only for the surrounding areas - but for Planet Earth. It has an impact on nature for many, many years ahead. It impacts on our health, our childrens and our grand-childrens health and physical survival.
We human beings are superior in our ability to destroy our own existence.
