Why anyone would want to continue using ANY form of fuel with waste that has a half-life long after all of us ten generations down are gone is beyond me? There's NO PLACE we can safely dispose of what a nuclear reactor produces. It's ridiculous to keep promoting this form of energy.

We are still in danger from Japan. What else does it take to get into the brain of our politicians?

There is a lot of BIG BIG money and power in nuclear. They want nuclear so they can have their nuclear weapons. They will not give it up without a fight, but if we have the majority of people behind us we can stop them. Nuclear power keeps getting more and more expensive while Solar and wind just keep getting cheaper. There is no safe level of radiation even background radiation can be harmful. The spent fuel pool is in danger of collapse in Fukushima. If it collapses we will have one heck of a mess that may never be cleaned up. the containment in the reactors that melted down is compromised. There is a constant flow of radioactive water coming out of the reactors. This mess will be going on for the next 100 years or more before it is even contained much less cleaned up.
