RE: The nuclear situation in Japan is getting worse, experts worry about other plants in seismic zones
There are SO many possible ways that disasters can hit a nuclear plant. The 9/11 attacks were going to originally be on U.S. nuclear plants, but they figured that they would be too heavily defended with SAMs, etc. Guess what? We have NO defense of our nuclear plants! Also, there is no way to ever get rid of the radioactive waste. We bury it. The half-life of Cesium-135 is 30 years. We're generating radioactive garbage that will be around for a very, very long time...and we want to produce MORE of it? What a travesty to leave this stuff that causes instant genetic mutations and cancer to future generations to have to deal with! I say, put solar on every single roof in America. We'd have enough energy. Nobody is putting the money and effort into this solution. It's sustainable essentially forever, doesn't endanger the earth, and doesn't leave a trail of crap for future generations to get sick and die from.
