YES! It’s clear - nuclear is too dangerous to be used for anything.
NO! Nuclear energy will help get us off foreign oil.

We have had nuke plants for 50 years without a Chernobyl. Perhaps we are lucky Chernobyl happened as a warning, but until a safer form of energy is in place to replace the power we get from the plants now supplying energy, I think we should keep them and maintain strong safety measures to insure we continue to avoid disasters. Also develop additional layers of safety around the plants.

"Please don’t get me wrong: I’m not trying to be pro-nuclear. I’m just pro-arithmetic."

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
