<<Fossil fuels are just as damaging to our enviroment. The time frame is just longer. Not to mention a finite supply that WILL run out >>
Where ever did you get the idea that fossil fuels are the same as nuclear? There is no comparison. That area of Northern Japan is getting ready to be (if not already), a no man's land. And no one can correct that except mother nature and it will take her many decades to do so.
We will have viable alternatives long before we run out of fossil fuels.
