We can live without these.

No, it is not. It just presents a different set of negatives that are ultimately more deadly, and more costly. Plus, it irresponsibly passes on the problem of its toxic waste on to future generations. It symbolizes the apex of human stupidity and arrogance.

Nuclear Energy can be safe and better to the environment when they change from Fission to Fusion energy.

When and if we figure out fusion, yes, then it will be, but the two processes are alike only in that they can be called "nuclear." Fission, however, is simply too dangerous, and was pursued only because profitable to some. I believe it constitutes a threshold we should have never crossed. And that's not taking into account that ALL nuclear development spring from weapons research. Nuclear is Pandora's Box.

I'm with you on this, Al. The nuke industry has been corrupt and mismanaged from the get-go. There are plenty of alternatives.

I'm sure there must be ground level people who are very good. Of course, that probably true of most troublesome industies; they're not the people causing the trouble.

And more importantly, as you say, there are alternatives.
