Exclamation Is nuclear energy really green OR clean?

This issue really bugs me.. people keep touting nuclear power and how wonderful it is, but they never address the topic of NUCLEAR WASTE.

I'm no scientist but I do know that most nuclear waste has a half-life of about a million to two million years.. and what do we currently do with all this waste? We bury it underground to where it could potentially leak into ground water and other parts of the environment.

I know we've come a long way since Chernobyl and Three Mile Island, but I just don't understand how waste which will last on minimum for thousands of years can be considered 'green'.

I have never heard a statement on how many tons or square footage* of waste material and by products per year is produced per reactor. I think unclear energy could be the way to go if made clear.

People in general are not green or clean, the world flourished without humans for millions of years. In a short amount of time in geologic terms we have destroyed and sucked the planet dry of natural resources. Literally humans are a disease destroying everything in our path. Thats why dogs are so kick ass, they don't need fossil fuels. However the way I see it, F-it, I am having fun and I wont be around to see the demise anyway. Unless Thor shows up to gather his Valhalla army in the next 30 years or so.

Penn and Teller did a show on this. Go to www.surfthechannel.com and watch it. Everything they say on their show is verifiable. Nuclear power is the way to go. The transport of it is safe, and even if there was a spill, it would have to be left there for it to have any effect on the life of the area.

I'd watch the one on landfills to.
