I am a supporter of nuclear/atomic energy. Almost all the people killed in the 2011 Japanese earthquake & tsunami were killed by debris, disease, pneumonia, etc. The same risks are found with hydroelectric dams. If a hydroelectric dam is destroyed in an earthquake, massive flooding can happen- people can drown, be killed by electrocutions, epidemics can spread from dirty H2O. Also people can be killed by the floods coming into contact with dangerous chemicals. There's 100* more radiation from coal & natural gas emissions which cause more deaths & diseases such as asthma, lung cancer, heart attacks, etc. So many get killed in coal mining accidents. Yet many give little thought to this. Windmills and solar panels, are sold as green, but they are not so. They need more land, use more materials, generate less energy-both the wind and sun are intermittent. Windmills have killed endangered birds and bats. People who live near windmills have higher incidence of hearing loss, migraines, nausea, etc. Solar panels have dangerous chemicals some of which are carcinogenic. Yes, we must also use windmills and solar panels when possible, but lets end the idea that windmills and solar panels are green & there must be more environmental impact statements on this before approval. The views of the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, etc. against nuclear energy only uses some science & is more on politics. The Sierra Club's views against nuclear energy rerun the same 1970s arguments-more on politics & little on science. The Sierra Clubs views on this is poop because they go with the religion that in order to be an environmentalist that they must oppose nuclear/atomic energy. We must use geothermal when possible. With nuclear, the newer nuclear power plants run on less uranium which lasts longer and generates less waste. Eventually theyll perfect a Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor. Thorium is better than uranium. They will also come up with better reactors in the future, underwater reactors such as Flexblue along with underground reactors will be there. There are also small nuclear reactors which can be underground & you'll see more of this + ships which run on nuclear-Russia uses nuclear powered icebreakers. What happened in Japan in 2011 got the nuclear industry hostility most of it unjustified. The earthquake forced nations to reevaluate their nuclear powerplants & some nations policies with Germany & Switzerland passing phaseouts & Italy refusing to reintroduce nuclear. Germany in the meantime has built or building more coal, buying more Russian gas, so their energy policy is a joke. But the nuclear topic is not going away. India, China, U.K., Poland, etc. are building new nuclear powerplants. Whether people like it or not, nuclear energy toipic is not going away, just as BP did not go away after the 2010 spill. BP was negligent. It was condemned, got congressional hearings. BPs business was hurt for a time, but BP is still in business. Finally it must be said that the nuclear topic since the 2000s is being debated even by environmentalists which would've been unheard of in the 1980s. Anyhow, please share views as again, the nuclear/atomic energy topic whether you like it or not is not going away.
