People Talk: Has the partial reactor meltdown in Japan changed your opinion on nuclear power?

Linda Weathers, El Dorado Hills “Yes. It's pretty scary. I’ve become very concerned. I guess I didn’t think much about it before. This generation has gotten pretty comfortable with nuclear power. But right after the quake I worried that radiation might get in the atmosphere and spread all over the world. You definitely don’t want it anywhere near an active fault line

Kathleen Dunne, Birmingham, Ala. “I guess so. I still think it’€™s viable, but I see a need for honest, accurate information about nuclear power and its relative safety. I’€™m looking forward to a full, objective examination of what happened in Japan.”

Dan Dunne, Birmingham, Ala. “€œNo. I believe we have the ability to keep nuclear power safe and secure.”€

Dan Johnson, El Dorado Hills “€œThat’€™s a big no. Not at all. Nuclear power beats foreign oil hands down. It’€™s a readily available energy resource that we need to take advantage of.”

PT-Larry Norris

Larry Norris, El Dorado Hills “€œI think it’€™s fine, but not near a fault line. So yes, my opinion has changed. We need to be more careful. It’€™s not the right solution for earthquake prone areas.”
