We will never forget Fukashima. The powerplant in Japan opened all of our eyes to the fact that we are managing nuclear power and it has a tremendous ability to fall apart in ways that crush whole environments. This is something that we really need to take into account. We have 99 active nuclear powerplants on American soil. That means we have 99 chances of totally wrecking the regions all over the nation.
