4. No, not a water leak! That water is used to make steam! Dripping water will be our doom!
Steam turbines need to outlawed! lol

I don't see why people are against nuke plants, it's the only energy source on Earth that doesn't originate at the sun (or other stars, but that's negligible). It's very safe and seeing as how solar/hydroelectric can only take us so far... It's necessary for our amount of consumption.

As far as coal goes, as long as it's clean burning, the only by-products are carbon dioxide and water. What's that... two things plants need to survive? No way! The only problems I have with clean coal are the ways that it is collected.

Technology really is a great thing, if you're so scared of nuclear power, why don't you become amish?
