Ok, I don't profess to have all
the answers, but I do know one thing, Nuclear power is
dangerous. Petroleum power is dangerous and in limited
supply. Coal power is Dangerous, despite the attempt by
the Coal companies to convince us otherwise.
It's time to look at investing
more in alternative energy sources such as wind power,
geo thermal, solar and others. Or, we can just let the
situation subside and slowly forget about it, Again. We
do this all the time people. This is not the first
Environmental disaster we've been responsible for as
humans. There has been many such as the Exxon Valdez
Oil Spill, Three Mile Island, The BP Oil Spill and Many
others. It's time to wake up. Petroleum and Nuclear
power is NOT safe! I'm not saying turn them off right
now, or quit drilling, but we need to develop and invest
in alternative energy.
Just think, if a tanker of
Biodiesel ran aground somewhere, the environmental
impact would be MUCH less. I mean, often when there is
a spill of biodiesel they course of actions is....
nothing. They just clean it up a bit and let mother
nature take care of it. It's biodegradeable so it will
simply break down and return to nature. Or what about
wind power? Imagine a disaster there. Maybe a fan
blade snaps off and puts a big dent in the ground, or
one quits working and..... stops. I mean, there are
many safer ways of producing power than our current
methods. So it's time to re think, time to implement
even more wind power, more biodiesel, more electric cars
and slowly phase out the highly toxic, dangerous forms
we now use.
But unfortunately, I'm not sure
we'll learn yet. To many people want to knock the
alternative powers and insist we can 'Build it Safer'.
But folks, mother nature is Way more powerful than we
are and I don't believe there is such a thing as a
earthquake/Tsunami proof power plant. Even if there is,
there will never be a human safe form of this energy.
