    Should the nuclear plants be eliminated everywhere?

    At a present time around 20% of the world energy comes from nuclear plants.
    If you are in power to decide,what YOU would do?

    I don't think so because think about it.  This plant in Japan may meltdown, may, it's not even for sure.  This thing withstood a 9.0 earthquake and a terrible tsunami.  That rarely will happen anywhere and to me thats some pretty safe infrastructure to withstand something like that.  This should not be used as a reason why Nuclear Power isn't safe.

    yes they should. i realise nuclear power is used widely but this is one of those thing that the dangers far outweigh the good and i can see us paying for our use of it over time.

    We need to have a balanced energy portfolio. Nuclear can and probably should be a contributor and for the most part it can be considered relatively safe. The only problem is when something goes wrong, it goes "Really Wrong" and the fallout (no pun intended) can last thousands of years.
