We should continue nuclear power but in locations more secure then an earthquake fault or near ocean waters.

I am Ayşegül Güvenenler from Turkey. Nuclear energy has been a debate subject in Turkey for years. Every year the government proposes a nuclear energy project and draw back after discussions. Because of the fact that Turkey’s energy is foreign-dependant it is important to use our energy, I understand this but possible hazards of nuclear power outweigh the profits. Also I do not accept the arguments about “clean” energy. It is too risky and waste of nuclear plants are impossible to get rid off without damage.
Unfortunately, Fukushima showed the reality to the world again.
The Environmental Crisis Is in Fact a Crisis in Democracy:
Stephen Leahy interviews writer and environmentalist FRANCES MOORE LAPPÉ
Q: There is a feeling amongst many environmentally-aware people that it is already too late and there is too much to be overcome.
A: Thinking it’s too late is another thought trap. It may be too late to avoid significant impacts that could have been avoided if action had been taken two decades ago. It is not too late for life. My book is filled with examples of people taking charge and turning things around.
What makes people think it’s too late is that they feel alone and powerless. People feel that way because of the thought traps, the false beliefs about scarcity and of human nature as greedy and selfish. Those beliefs and a privately-held government have led to feelings of powerlessness.
Japan’s Nuclear Exclusion Zone Shows Few Signs of Life:
What’s most striking about Japan’s nuclear exclusion zone, is there are no people, few cars, no sign of life, aside from the occasional livestock wandering empty roads. While workers of the Fukushima plant are bused in daily, the government has maintained a 12-mile no-go zone around the area for everyone else.
The government has said it will take at least 30 years to decommission the crippled reactors. This nuclear wasteland may not be livable for decades.
