No nuclear power plants have been built in the United States since 1979, but with an increasing energy crunch and rising oil prices, many nuclear power opponents are changing their opinion. We asked readers if they thought it was time to re-consider nuclear power as an energy alternative.

I think Nagasaki and Hiroshima was a mistake. That’s when the Atomic Age was born and we’re suffering the consequences of that today. If it fails, nuclear exposure can be deadly. In peacetime and wartime.

Paul Decker

I’m up in the air about it. I am afraid of nuclear waste. We’ll just see what happens. Until they find some way to get rid of nuclear waste, I’m still questioning it.

Mildred Gilliemsen

We should keep up with the other countries — just in case something happens, we’re prepared with nuclear power. Why should we be without it?

Todd Becerra

I’m very much concerned about the safety of nuclear power – it does a great deal of damage. I don’t want to have more nuclear power at all. It’s very damaging to the human body as well as everything around us.

Carol Nesby

Nuclear power is better because there is no contamination – it is not the problem. The problem is that fuel oil – maybe tomorrow or some year – will disappear. Hopefully, we should have a lot of nuclear power and it will not affect anybody.
