It is my understanding that nuclear power as we have used it in the US is NOT the gold standard in how it can be done. And not all governments are owned lock, stock & barrel by the petroleum industry in the way the American government is owned & heavily influenced by the Koch brothers. France gets an enormous quantity of its energy from nuclear power quite safely. If you have observed that solar & wind energy are undermined in the US while other developed countries use them successfully, remember YOUR CONGRESSMAN & SENATOR receive lots of petroleum industry money to buy your vote--especially, but not exclusively, if you are Republican! ** I say this frequently but it gets lost in the argument: Americans are among the most creative & innovative thinkers in the world. If American scientists & scholars were not tied in knots by religious zealots & conservative oligarchs who want to control & remake the world to their liking and were allowed & funded to do research, we would be leading the world in safe, alternative energy. Between the libertarians who want to do anything they choose without restraint in the name of liberty and the insane Christians who want Jesus to kill off everyone who disagrees with them in some End Times fantasy, the US will be left in the dust of self-imposed craziness. Welcome to America! VOTE TRUMP for the full catastrophe. If he doesn't suit, VOTE CRUZ! Either way, the unique brand of American lunacy will eat us alive.
