Nuclear power: dangerous yes, Chemical plants: dangerous yes, Pipelines; dangerous yes, gas station; dangerous yes, your car; dangerous yes......If you want to look at what is dangerous everything is but if you want to live like you do today, you got to take chances. So why not nuclear, yeah there is the debate what to do with the waste, and then theres coal all that pollution and oil well we all know the answer to that. But why cant we just dedicate a place to put all this nuclear waste like the gov has been trying to do, but getting protested by everyone with a green thumb. And yes nuclear plants can have a melt down, so what about the plants we have today. not safe? i dont think so. And how about the grid problem, dont you think adding some nice clean nuclear power plants to it would benefit us. Maybe close down some of those old dirty plants would be nice. I think pres Bush has a great idea for once and maybe it can happen if we all can just think of the problems we have now with our own energy crisis. Oil is not going to get cheaper if anything it is going to go up and up and up. maybe we will be paying 4 bucks a gallon, or maybe even more. Or how about 2,3,4,5 hundred a barrel, I know sound a little ridiculous but there is always that possibility. If this keeps happening it will effct everyone in the modern world, imagine having to pay 200 dollars to fill that big suv of yours for you can just go 200 miles, wow a dollar a mile whew not me. So maybe if we take the need for oil away and create some non fossil fuel plants maybe the price will steady and maybe even drop. I know it is a big dream but the more we try the closer we will get to success.
