The world needs to change to appropriate renewable energy. Kudos too to Ralph F for installing solar panels.

Good for him, I hope the whole world listens. It's been time for renewables for many years now. How many more disasters do we need before we actually implement these renewable sources?

Noted. Hope they could change nuclear to renewable energy. Just hope other governments who want to build nuclear plants rethink about their plans.

It's been time for a long time, but greed, ignorance and bureaucracy keep slowing down progress that would move many countriesand the world really in a better more sustainable direction.

I keep thinking for some reason that the reason why of Nuclear Plants is cause their actually a legal way of Nuclear power for warheads when heeded. If so, shut them down and deny a lic to run them and go Solar Power.
