Nuclear Power? I Say Yes.

For everyone out there screaming and crying about the dangers of  building new nuclear power plants here in the United States, I have a few suggestions to calm your fears:

#1 Don't build a nuclear power plant on an island
#2 Don't build a nuclear power plant on a fault line

For the first time in my lifetime, the United States government is strongly considering the approval of new nuclear power plants. It would create thousands of jobs and provide enormous amounts of power. To learn from the mistakes in Japan, we must focus on safety and technology, to keep the chances of an accident at a minimum.

But, if we are all going to live in fear about accidents...then lets just stop making cars, airplanes, trains, bridges, etc...anything that could possibly hurt or kill us.

And now, a sensible look at nuclear power from Penn & Teller.
