What's wrong with 'Nuclear energy'?

Apart from there being a major disaster if things go wrong (eg Chernobyl), and the time it takes for the "waste" to become safe, it is a non-renewable energy ie it will run out.
Nuclear power stations are expensive for safety reasons and for disposal reasons. In countries that scrimp on safety, disposal or expertise they are potentially threatening their own existance.

You can ...

Invest in Low energy light bulbs, unplug unused electrical adapters, reduce the amount of TV you watch, possibly use the dishwasher and washing machine less.
