Just A Bit More About Why Nuclear Power Is The Correct Answer

As a result of the disaster at Fukushima, I am more in support of the technology than ever.

A crappy old plant with inadequate safety features was hit by a monster earthquake and a vast tsunami. The electricity supply failed, knocking out the cooling system. The reactors began to explode and melt down. The disaster exposed a familiar legacy of poor design and corner-cutting. Yet, as far as we know, no one has yet received a lethal dose of radiation.
