We are just as prepared for the responsibilities of nuclear power as we are for a multitude of other technologies that we have in this world. Hell, we had nuclear weapons before we had nuclear power. Coal and gas can do major damages to our ecosystems. In fact, just building communities, especially cities, does major damage to ecosystems. We have trash building up. I would go as far as saying capitalism itself does much more damage to our planet than nuclear power ever could, considering some of the demands capitalism puts on the environment in the name of supply and demand.

The tides carry the contamination for hundreds or thousands of miles. This would effect the marine life. People would eat the fish and then the mutations and sickness would start. I am sure that this will be denied but I think that we as intelligent people all know better."
