      Definitely renewable energy is better – I think the risk from nuclear power is that radiation from the waste has the potential to be dangerous – some cancers are caused by radiation. The nucelar industry is highly regulated and the waste is carefully controlled but we all remember chernobyl and the accident that happened there. I think the benefits of clean nuclear power outweigh the risks and it’s better than burning fossil fuels but I think wind, solar and water power are better than nuclear.
