AP: "Europe has to wake up from its Sleeping Beauty slumber about nuclear safety, Austria's Environment Minister Nikolaus Berlakovich told reporters in Brussels"

The people in the US need to wake up from the same dream.

There is a difference between something that is safe (like walking) but that sometimes may become deadly and dangerous (like walking at night in a bad neighborhood), and something that is 100% deadly and dangerous (like a nuclear chain reaction) but that commercial and political interests want us to believe has been made safe because of the use of technology.

Nuclear plants are ticking time bombs, because nuclear plants are just the same nuclear reactions that destroyed Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Chernobyl enclosed inside a man made structure. Structures that will always be vulnerable to everything you can think can destroy those structures.

Think about it and lets put our money in developing energy systems that won't kill people or the ecosystem.
