VIDEO: Voices Around Town

Do you think nuclear power is safe, in the wake of Japan's disaster?

Every week the Voice asks people in downtown Mountain View their opinion on an event currently making headlines.

This week we asked whether people thought that nuclear power was still a good idea in the U.S., given what they know about the disaster in Japan and the havoc it has brought to nuclear power plants in that country.

Watch the video to find out what people said.

All power sources have their drawbacks. eg Water: Colorado river no longer ends into the Gulf of California (only a tiny bit reaches the Gulf). Its water is used up -upstream. Natural gas and Petroleum contribute to global warming. Solar energy requires covering up large tracts of land. None of them are perfect.
