Do you think that people should abandon nuclear power?

Taking into consideration the terrible accidents that took place in Chernobyl and now in Japan, more and more people consider that governments should stop using nuclear power plants and make use of other energy sources.

Germany has already announced that it will abandon nuclear power for good. At the same time projects that aim at harnessing wind and solar energy are quite expensive, especially for developing countries.

What do you think? Should nuclear power be abandoned, or should governments continue using it but with more attention paid to security measures?

The exploitatio of nuclear power must be stopped, the decisive factor being human lives, and nothing is more important.

I consider the decision from Germany most wise and advanced towards a proteccion of mankind and the planet.
This action should be imposed by international regulations and authorities.
We should realise that nuclear power is out of our control in case of cathastropes which ever reason.

even if the whole world decides that the use of nuclear power plants be abandoned, many would still use it, because they have no other choice. developing countries do not have enough financial resources to build solar-power plants and as for wind energy, not only countries can boast a windy climate.
