Reader feedback: Close down the nuclear plants

RE: Enel plans clear, Austria unhappy, Volume 11, Number 8, February 28 - March 6, 2005

They should close down all the nuclear power plants throughout the world. Nuclear power plants generate too much nuclear waste and there is nowhere to get rid of it.

Remember Chernobyl and Three Mile Island here in Pennsylvania. Most of the power from the nuclear power plant in Berwick Pennsylvania is sold to the casinos in Atlantic City...what a waste!

There is so much demand for electricity but nobody seems concerned about the health and welfare of people. Pollution knows no borders. It circles the globe and everyone suffers with cancers of all sorts.

Hopefully, we'll find alternatives to nuclear plants and perhaps they can place the spent nuclear fuel rods on rockets and send them to the moon or some other planets?

Is the often frivolous use of electricity, on things like gaming machines, worth the actual and potential dangers associated with nuclear power?
