The Fairytale of Clean and Safe Nuclear Power

To call nuclear power "clean" is an affront to science, common sense and the English language itself, yet industry backers, inside and outside of government, are attempting to establish a new "Clean Energy Standard" to promote nuclear power.

How true. There is nothing "clean" about nuclear energy. Unless we find a way to eject the spent fuel into the Sun, all nuclear plants should be shut down.

I remember reading a few years ago about the newer, safer technology of nuclear power. I don't have time to look it up now, but I think France built a model. And, their waste was transformed into glass rendering it inert. I could be wrong. I also recall that the newer model reactor structures are supposed to withstand a blow from an airplane.
I still wouldn't put one on a fault line though.
