Undoubtedly, we need more power plants in the future. Utilizing windmills here and there sounds okay, but I don’t want to see an entire countryside covered with them. I believe that nuclear power will be the most cost effective form of mass power, the cleanest and [the safest]( in terms of the cost of human life — compared to coal and hydro electric.
