My summer roommate wrote an interesting piece discussing the views of those who live near nuclear power plants on nuclear power. I don’t know much about alternative energies and all that, but all the arguments I’ve read about nuclear power make me believe that it is the best choice for reducing our carbon emissions and dependency on foreign oil, even if it isn’t perfect. I also tend to think that people have been scaremongered and misinformed about the true safety/danger of nuclear power.
