We are playing with fire when we play with Nuclear Energy.

We should be focusing on phasing it out.

Why do people ignore the thousands who die each year from air polution caused by coal, instead fearing nuclear based on the zero who died from that disaster? We need next generation nuclear as being implemented in China.

We need next generation nuclear as being implemented in China.

We need next generation renewables as being implemented in Germany.

To the pro-nuke folks: Do you have any idea of what to do with all that spent nuclear fuel that's piling up both in Japan and in the US? If so, let those respective governments know, because they have no idea.

Mother Earth is getting angry.  A spate of quakes around the world in the last month.  Plus typhoons and hurricanes.......

The JMA website says there was one at 0137 at a depth of 10km off the coast of Tohoku, which is the one I felt as I wasn't yet asleep.
