nuclear power is more efficient and safer than a chemical plant, I know, I have worked in both.

(The Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant was first commissioned in 1971)Note: Oldest operating United States nuclear plant/year: Oyster Creek in New Jersey, first came online on December 1, 1969. US Nuclear power plants are over 30 years old. President Barack Obama announced Tuesday roughly $8 billion in government-loan guarantees for Southern Co. to break ground on a new nuclear-power plant in Georgia. The US industry average cost for decommissioning a power plant is USD $300 million.These are just a few of my reasons for my oppose vote.

Worldwide, according the IEA, nuclear power produced 2.7 trillion kilowatt hours in 2006, accounting for a little less than 16 percent of electricity generated.

Sorry about that second comment, just had to add a little more - and here's one more thing - Cost to decommision a nuclear power plant - radiological ($300 million), used fuel ($100-150 million), and site restoration costs ($50 million). Decommissioning is not included in the operating costs of a plant. Reports to decommission Illinois plant may reach $1 billion. But no worry, these amounts are figured in the cost of the produced product - so the cost of that cheap energy goes up to cover the cost of eventually decommissioning the plant. So the company has to estimate the future cost of decommissioning, if they calculate incorrectly, who do you think pays the bill? OK, I think I am finished with this subject. There must be a better and safer way to produce energy than nuclear power.
