Image via WikipediaThe world needs large amounts of electricity to supply our current population. Solar, wind, tidal, etc just can't generate enough power to get that job done. Only nuclear power can get the job done. Japan was hit by a 8.9 earthquake and the whole country shifted by 6 feet so it is inevitable that people are going to die from many causes and all of those causes are terrible.
We should modernize and build new nuclear power plants in the safest areas possible because they are a necessary risk. Everything in life is subject to chance and time. We need nuclear power unless we are willing to live without any electricity in our cities.
