Nuclear Power: A Very Sharp Double Edged Sword

There are possible futures in which we might be forced to use nuclear energy, if we wait too long to implement strong renewable energy systems we will be facing a world in which we have dramatic energy shortages. However this “magic bullet” comes with some very real and very dangerous risks. I personally think that nuclear energy should be the energy of last resort. The only scenario I would feel comfortable building a nuclear power plant in one in which millions are on the verge of death without a steady supply of energy. Because we are not in that scenario now, I think we can still safely avoid (perhaps forever) installing any nuclear power plants.

What do you think? Are the risks worth the rewards? Would you rather have a nuclear power plant or a wind farm/solar array/geothermal plant in your neighborhood?
