I can never fully understand why some people somewhere could still insist on nuclear energy. The link above tells us part of the aftermath of its radioactive contamination in Fukushima. Honestly, the people who insist on nuclear should really go to Fukushima themselves and clean up the contamination instead of talking about why and how else it should be managed to ensure safety for future generations to come. The reality is: unless one knows how to contain nuclear energy risks, no one under our current socio-political-economic situation should ever use nuclear energy as a prime source of energy production. The nuclear fallout should be used as a warning on how justice should be done on any other source of energy used in a similar large scale as a precautionary measure. Any tool given in the wrong hands can be a weapon. And nuclear is by far the worst tool to use. Why tempt it? Just dump it. – Karen Fu
