    Totally. There are many countries, such as France, who use Nuclear power for a majority of the electricity needs. It is cleaner than coal and produces more power and much more consistently than solar and wind.

    I think a diversified power system is best - where you use wind, solar, coal, water, nuclear, and many other sources to generate power.

    For those who think it isn't safe, look at how the US Military uses it. They put nuclear reactors on all the new Aircraft Carriers and Submarines, as well as other ships. Obviously it is safe and effective if the military is choosing to use it over other options.

    A lot of new technology is available these days that can make nuclear power plants the best source of power if people will stop being paranoid about it.

    I am not a supporter of nuclear anything.  There really is no use for it that does no create a large economic and environmental issue.  The main issue with nuclear is not the production of electricity it produces, which happens to much more efficient than coal and sustainable energies, but the disposal of he waste that nuclear power plants produce.  There is no way to dispose of nuclear waste that is environmentally responsible and is a current issue in the United States.  The Yucca Mountain debate about nuclear waste storage has been going on for years and there is still no headway as to what is to be done with the waste that has been produced.  Sometimes less efficient solutions such as wind and solar are better, especially when he do not produce any waste.  Even the parts of these components can be recycled.  It simply needs to be incorporated on a large scale, something that has simply not happened, at least not in the United States. The other aspect of this that many people do not realize is that there are requirements for nuclear waste storage that are not being met and cost all of us a lot of money.  This makes sustainable power much less expensive overall than originally thought if based on long term solutions.  Please take a look at the following link and you can make up your own mind about what you think about nuclear power production, waste disposal, and costs of this type of energy.
