As an environmentalist, pro-nuclear is not environmental and never will be, it is a false solution to climate change, not just because of the fossil fuels emitted during the uranium fuel cycle but because we can power our future with renewables and energy conservation and retrofitting, don't believe the industry trolls who say nuclear is clean, think radition exposure, Fukushima, and oh yeah bombs and nuclear waste. The claim renewables are more expensive is false; they are suffocated from the market place by billions of subsidies to nuclear, hiding the real cost of nuclear, not including the storage of waste.

I think, the aninuclear activists should pay tenfold electricity bills.

You are not an environmentalist.

As an Environmentalist, I can only come to the conclusion that Nuclear Power is essential if we are to avoid runaway climate change and the acidification of the oceans. I'm pro Wind and Solar, but without significant subsidies, the resultant electricity is 3-6 times more expensive than fossil fuels or nuclear - a price that the market just won't accept. This means that decommissioning Nuclear will just result in far more coal and gas plants, the exact opposite of what we need. We need to be reducing CO2 emissions, not increasing them!

13:05 For Japan it's a question of whether to be safe or have the electricity.

If the government feels it's safe have them live in tents around the Fukushima plant for the summer
