It's sad to see so many nay votes with comments that don't reflect nuclear technology. Nuclear power is the single safest power source than all of the current green power sources along with fossil fuel power plants. What many of you don't know is that the best option the Traveling Wave Reactor. The TWR uses a very small amount of fuel compared to current technology and can use the waste that comes from them as well; it can also reuse the waste it creates as well after its cleaned. It's absolutely impossible to meltdown and can be left to alone for up to 40 years with out needing to be refueled. This an essential technology that needs to be researched until fission power sources become cheaper to build. Also the majority of the waste that's been created by current nuclear technology will not take hundreds of years to decay; it will only take a couple of decades for it's the 1/5th of the material that's been made that will take the longest to decay.
