    Do You Favor Nuclear Power?

    Given what's taking place in Japan's reactors after the earthquake, this is certainly a topical question. Not much to add.

    I think it's irrelevant whether I favor nuclear power or not; after the last two days, the American people will never allow another nuclear power plant to be built anywhere near them ever again.

    This poll is about what you believe, not about the country as a whole believ. How about some courage of your convictions?

    I support nuclear power plants but only built in the most stable areas of the US.

    There are no stable areas in the U.S. or anywhere else.

    I favor it, but believe it to be dangerous.

    We all know how much corruption, corner-cutting and other hi-jinks goes on in normal businesses and the same would likely happen at nuclear power plants. Except when you cut corners or give the job to the lowest bidder, a hole gets blasted in the earth making the surrounding region uninhabitable.

    if we're ever going to get away from oil, not only do I have nuclear power, but I don't think we can survive without it.

    I would argue that it is far from a topical question, or at least it is a question for which you are only soliciting ill-informed opinions.

    I think we really need to understand what is really happening in Japan before you can have intelligent discourse on this subject. Any current discussion is just amongst people that have rigid, preconceived ideas on the subject.

    I thought I was being pretty courageous in my prediction: there may have been a chance for new nuclear plant construction in this country before Fukushima Daiichi but no longer. It's done. Stick a fork in it.
